Baseball Roundup: It's MLB Draft Day! Twins, You're On The Clock

13 Juin 2017

Royce Lewis profile - A dark horse for the first pick, but the latest rumors indicate the Twins may in fact take him with the first overall pick.

The first night brings us the first two rounds, and the Dodgers' two picks tonight come at No. 23 overall and No. 62. Was standout on USA Baseball's gold medal-winning Under-18 team at Pan American Championships a year ago. "We see this guy as an impact player on both sides of the ball". The only other player drafted by the Dodgers at No. 62 was MI high school outfielder Billy Ashley in 1988.

Lewis is a 6-2, 188-pound shortstop from JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., and is perhaps the most complete position player in the draft. Most draft pundits agree that Greene appears to be the top talent in the draft, but it's been over 20 years since a high school pitcher (most prefer Greene's pitching to his hitting) has been taken with the top pick. Greene, featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated this season, also batted.324 with six homers and 28 RBIs.

Of all the lefties the Marlins are scouting, Rogers may have the most juice on his fastball, a pitch that can reach 95 miles per hour regularly. "I'm different on the field than I am off the field". "You think about the guys he's had to catch the last few years at the University of Florida, he's really caught some power arms and the way Sully likes to run them in and out, he's caught a lot of them ... catching is in short supply, I expect him to get drafted in some point in time, too".

"I don't even know yet", he said, wearing a Cincinnati cap and jersey. Big West player of year led Division I hitters with.442 batting average and.567 on-base percentage. I would imagine here at LL we have a disproportionate number of folks engaged and attentive to the draft and its lead-up, but even still, it is hard to generate great excitement. "I just remember being excited".

The Padres took North Carolina high school pitcher MacKenzie Gore with the third pick.

Rafael Nadal Makes History at the French Open
As a tired Wawrinka sliced a volley into the net on match point Nadal collapsed on his back on the baseline. "But not only here". I played against the biggest clay-court player ever. "Roland Garros is the most important tournament for me".

Louisville two-way star Brendan McKay was drafted fourth overall by Tampa Bay as a first baseman.

The 2017 Gatorade Player of the Year for California, Lewis was chosen the Most Valuable Player last year in the Under Armour All-American Game at Wrigley Field and in the Perfect Game All-American Classic at Petco Park.

"It's just awesome, getting to swing it every day, play every day", McKay said in an interview with MLB Network. Atlanta Braves: RHP Kyle Wright, Vanderbilt 6.

KESTON HIURA, 2B, UC Irvine, 5-11, 190, junior.

Kentucky high school outfielder Jordon Adell, Texas high school right-hander Shane Baz and Virginia outfielder Adam Haseley are others who have pulled double-duty on the diamond and are expected to be first-rounders.

"Once you get into the top two rounds, the signing bonus is pretty tough to turn down", Stricklin said.
