July 2023 Update
Middle infielders who can hit (like Tanner Schobel) are always in demand, and that's what attracted Minnesota to Luke Keaschall with their third pick in the latest draft. In selecting Keaschall 61st overall out of Arizona State, where he went deep 18 times as a junior transfer, the Twins acquired a likely future second baseman with intriguing power potential and a theoretically short path to the majors.
Keaschall spent his first two college seasons at the University of San Francisco and was a veteran of the Cape Cod League before transferring to Arizona State for his junior season. Playing shortstop for the Sun Devils, he has a solid hit/power combo package at the plate. He has a good approach and there's not a ton of swing and miss in his profile. Through the end of the 2023 season Keaschall hit .353/.443/.725 with 18 home runs and 18 steals. That's an impressive return for a significant step up in competition. Keaschall doesn't walk much (10 BB%) but he doesn't strike out much either (13 K%). His long term home isn't shortstop, as he doesn't have the arm. A shift to second base makes sense. He has a really solid floor overall, particularly if he can continue to develop his power stroke.
