Greene picked for arm, McKay for bat near top of Major League Baseball draft

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 05:23

A versatile position player, Lewis played third base and center field at the start of his high school career before playing exclusively shortstop as a senior.

Twins officials spoke highly about Lewis throughout the draft process.

The younger Clemens hit.305 for the Longhorns this season, along with a team-leading 12 home runs and 49 RBIs.

"I would take him off shortstop", O'Dowd said. With picks Nos. 64 and 71, they opted for high school position players.

The California high school star was taken with the No. 1 pick in the Major League Baseball draft Monday night.

"Greene, listed at 6'3" and 195 pounds by, has been one of the most talked-about players in this year's draft class.

The first Canadian selected, right-handed pitcher Landon Leach of Pickering, Ont., went to the Twins in the second round (37th overall).

In Rogers senior year of high school alone, the big young man threw three no-hitters, one of them being a ideal game.

While a handful of top prospects attended the live draft at the MLB Network studios in Secaucus, New Jersey, others held watch parties back home with family and friends.

Royce Lewis, a high school shortstop, with the first overall pick became the first franchise-caliber player acquired by the organization since Falvey and general manager Thad Levine assumed control of the baseball operations last fall. Minnesota took hometown catcher Joe Mauer first overall in 2001 and right-hander Tim Belcher with the first pick of the 1983 draft. At 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, he hit.377 with four homers and 25 stolen bases this season, establishing himself as a premier prospect with excellent speed and a solid bat. He went 4-2 in nine starts while posting a 1.34 ERA and 70 strikeouts in 60-and-one-third innings.

"We considered a lot of guys, but Royce is one of the elite athletes with his makeup and intangible packages available in any draft", Twins VP Mike Radcliff said.

UC Irvine second baseman Keston Hiura was the ninth pick to Milwaukee.

After taking HS outfielder Blake Rutherford a year ago, the Yankees opted for proven product with the selection of SC right-hander Clarke Schmidt.

Lewis could be a value pick for the Twins, who could save money to filter down and sign other draft choices.

At No. 13, Miami took New Mexico high school lefty Trevor Rogers, who was also at the draft site and is the cousin of former Marlins outfielder Cody Ross. It was the third time in the past 30 years that black players were chosen with the first two picks, and the first time since 1992 that three black players went in the top 10. The 2017 MLB Draft continues on Tuesday with rounds 3-10 and concludes on Wednesday with rounds 11-40.
