So the Royals just announced they've picked Dante Biasi, out of Penn State... described him as a native of "Hazzelton" (trying to share their pronounciation of Hazleton here )
Who's the highest ranked 4YR college kid not yet drafted as of Mid-9th round?
Carter Bins, C, Fresno State at MLB #134.
Former Philly 35-th round pick coming out of high school in Cal. Remember he had a very inspiring story at the time -- tough kid.
Interesting Fact #2.
Who's the 2nd highest ranked 4YR Junior still available in the 10th round?
Eduard Julien, 2B, Auburn. Ranked by MLB at #177 overall.
Sound familiar? Also a former Philly pick -- 37th round in 2017, out of Canada.
Both are still available, if the Phils wanted a re-do on them.
Apparently the Royals are giving Bobby Witt Jr. full 1.2 slot (like 7.9m)
I think I heard that Witt's Colleyville team won the Texas 6A state championship and that three players from the team were drafted by ML teams this year. Witt received good TV coverage here locally since his father was a long time ML player with time with our own local team, the Rangers.
