Twins draft California prep shortstop Royce Lewis at No. 1

13 June 2017

The Minnesota Twins selected California high school shortstop Royce Lewis with the No. 1 pick in the Major League Baseball draft Monday night.

This would also mark the third time in four years three of the top five selections were high school ballplayers.

"Royce is one of the elite athletes and makeup/intangible packages available at any draft", Twins vice president of player personnel Mike Radcliff said. When McKay is drafted, the MLB Network will interview him live. "It was an unbelievable feeling".

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.

Lewis played shortstop and outfield in high school. "He's a guy who loves his teammates". Whether or not he decides to come to Auburn or sign with whichever team drafts him remains to be seen. We're just so excited to have him. "It's going to be fun to be involved, and being on the field a lot".

"We know he's going to be a leader the second he steps on the field", Minnesota chief baseball officer Derek Falvey said.

It was the first time Miss Markle has been seen since she arrived at Pippa Middleton's wedding reception in Berkshire last month. When Markle was asked whether she had hopes of marrying Prince Harry though, things went silent when she did not reply.

SS Kurt Stillwell (1983) and INF Nick Senzel (2016) selected with the second overall picks, are the only other players to be drafted that high by the Reds. Wright went 5-6 with a 3.40 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP this year as a junior.

The first of four prospects in attendance at the draft site to be selected, Greene was asked to give a scouting report on himself as a pitcher.

He said he would participate in "anything I can do, go to ball clubs and go to Little Leagues and talk to them and inspire them". "I like that role and try to help out as many people as possible".

If Greene sounds too good to be true, you wouldn't be alone in thinking so.

"I don't even know yet", Greene said, wearing a Cincinnati cap and jersey. "So I think they're pretty pumped up for that, so we'll see how it works out". Right-hander Joe Lancellotti at no. 190 and third baseman Buddy Kennedy at no. 229 could also have a hard time saying no to a professional career.

Louisville two-way star Brendan McKay was drafted fourth overall by Tampa Bay as a first baseman. Combined rankings from all the major draft projection outlets place Hall as the No. 11 prospect in this year's draft, but ESPN's Keith Law has projected him to the Tigers in each of his past two mock drafts. The 17-year-old was announced as a pitcher.

After one rally in which he bullied his foe all over the court, Wawrinka placed a the ball in his mouth in frustration. Overjoyed, the Spaniard betrayed a long-held secret when asked to reflect on his first French Open crown 12 years ago.

McCarty led the Golden Eagles with 103 strikeouts in 2017, going 10-2 with a 3.52 earned-run average. The Yankees grabbed SC right-hander Clarke Schmidt at No. 16 after he had Tommy John surgery this spring. When things haven't gone well, they've always been there to pick me up.

Schmidt's stellar junior season was cut short two months ago, when he suffered a season-ending ulnar collateral ligament tear. His mid-90s fastball, biting slider and easy delivery still kept many teams interested. At 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, he has a 92-94 miles per hour fastball, a big-breaking curveball and an advanced changeup. The junior was the NCAA Division I batting champion this year with a.442 average.

In the second round, with the No. 39 pick, San Diego drafted catcher Luis Campusano of Cross Creek High (Ga.).

Two picks later, at No. 41, Atlanta chose switch-hitting outfielder Drew Waters of Etowah High (Ga.).

Leach, a high school senior from Pickering, Ontario, Canana, recently converted from catcher to pitcher. Pearson could turn that money down if he thinks he can improve his draft stock and command $5+ million a year from now.
