Blake Mitchell - C


 Why Blake Mitchell was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the first round  of the MLB Draft - YouTube


- 8th overall pick to the Royals out of HS (TX)

- Was an LSU commit

- Big arm (97 mph off the mound)

- Power to all fields

- Hit .452 in HS - 2 time Texas Gatorade player of the year

- Only hit .147 in first taste of pro ball (13 games)

- I'm always a little hesitant with highly drafted catchers though
