You're wrong about something:
Round 20 – Jason Kanzler – Outfielder – College
Kanzler began the season at Extended Spring, but when Granite was hurt, he was called up. In 34 games (136 AB), he has hit .301/.338/.485 (.823) with four doubles, three triples and five home runs. He is also 7-8 in stolen base attempts. He’s best known for his defense, having won a couple of gold gloves in college
That's totally false
He is best known for his mustache:

Thanks for the article lot of research on your part. Appears that Brandon Peterson is off to a good start. The combination of his numbers and already getting moved up looks promising for a 13th rounder. What type of pitcher is he?
Peterson is a hard thrower. Fastball guy, but he mixes in a slider as well that is pretty sharp. Very aggressive pitcher.

Wasn't a fan of the Eades pick.
Peterson, Stirewalt, Kanzler, and Christensen show some early potential to be late round gems.
Garver is a surprise, I believe, to many.
Excited to see what Navarreto becomes. Kid could be a hulk. And curious how Gonsalves will turn out. He was mostly just a fastball pitcher coming out of HS (something like 86% FBs). Wonder what the instructs will have done with him. Even with throwing almost exclusively gas he struck out 39 in 28 innings in the rookie leagues. Was kinda surprised he didn't get a shot at Cedar Rapids (A) by now.
