Drabek, who will play for the USA Team, is arguably the top pitching prospect in the Phillies' organization. He is so good that he is considered untouchable as the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches. A first-round pick in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, Drabek has recovered nicely from Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery July 25, 2007.
Drabek started the season at Class A Clearwater and went 4-1 with a 2.48 ERA in 10 appearances (nine starts). He was promoted to Double-A Reading, where he entered Thursday 3-0 with a 2.08 ERA in four starts.
Flande has opened a few eyes in the organization this season. The 23-year-old left-hander from the Dominican Republic is 6-1 with a 2.45 ERA in 12 starts for Clearwater. Flande has walked 22 and struck out 64 in 77 innings.
