In the third round ... out of high school. And Mookie Betts was drafted in the fifth round, does that mean DaShawn Keirsey Jr. is going to be better then him?
C'mon man, I answered your question. Do you really view Jeffers as a typical second-round pick?
Yeah I have never seen analysts at such a loss for words when the Twins picked Jeffers in the second round.To be honest I expected him to sign for half the slot amount.So I agree, I don't see Jeffers as your typical 2nd round pick.
After complaining about the pick I do like his bat.I know Elizabethton stats mean nothing as Max Murphy exploded there and flamed out in AA but with an OBP of nearly 500 I think Jeffers will do OK as he moves up. High A ball will tell the tale.If he hits there I believe he will make it.
Still between Jeffers and Larnach the Wonder Twins saved 1M in bonus pool money.I guess I don't know why they had to pay Sands and Kiersey so much over slot unless maybe they had deals in place for them?They did manage to nab a decent amount of high school guys with the savings I am just not sure they have as high of upside as you would like to see for those kinds of picks.
