2016 MLB Draft: Day Two BreakdownPremium
We are now two days into the three day event that is the 2016 MLB Draft, with rounds 3-10 taking place on Friday afternoon and evening. It was another eventful and interesting day of selections, as we saw some of the remaining top talent come off the board as well as some surprising names go even higher than expected. Rounds 3-10 also had an extremely college heavy flavor, as we saw an abundance of collegiate players flying off the board. In fact, in rounds 8-10 for example, just two high school players (total) were selected. Just 24 high school players were selected if you expand that range out to rounds 4-10. Here’s a breakdown some of the picks that stood out on Day 2.
Cole Stobbe, ss, Omaha, Neb. (Phillies, 78th overall) – This was an outstanding pick to kickoff yesterday’s action. Stobbe has star potential up the middle, showing good athleticism and a highly advanced hit tool. This was one of the best pure bats to come out of the prep class in 2016 and to land him in the third round is a major score for the Phillies.
