The 6-foot-1 shortstop from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., committed to University of California-Irvine. He is a frequent presence in the Phillies clubhouse, though on Friday he spoke on the steps of the visiting Twins' dugout.
"I was really honored," Moyer said of being drafted. "Out of high school it was pretty cool. The Twins are obviously a great organization, I've only heard good things about them."
Moyer said his parents have not pressured him either way about his decision. He hit .351 with 16 runs and seven stolen bases in his senior season for IMG this season.
"I didn't get the pitching genes," Moyer joked.
"I've been around it my whole life, so it's natural for me," he said.
