Lucky 13th?

We’ve already seen all kinds of interesting college players selected on the second day of the draft, from Cole St.Clair to Reid Fronk to Brandon Waring (all in the seventh round). We’re now in the 13th, and there are some very intriguing college sleepers coming off the board. The Indians grabbed Wichita State outfielder Matt Brown with their 13th-rounder. Brown is an excellent athlete with speed, raw power, a strong arm and a chance to hit. Pretty good high-upside pick for the 13th round. The White Sox took Virginia Commonwealth shortstop Sergio Mirando, a very slick defender who also makes consistent, hard contact, as evidenced by his .370 batting average for the Rams this spring. The Mariners selected Austin Peay State righthander Shawn Kelley, who outpitched David Price in the regionals on Friday. And two catchers with some pop lasted until the 13th, somewhat surprising given the demand for backstops. Kentucky’s Sean Coughlin went to the Diamondbacks, and San Diego’s Jordan Abruzzo went to the Mets.
