30 906 Kansas City Royals Christian Binford RHP Pa. $575,000
Originally from Hagerstown, Md., Binford is a 6-foot-7 righthander who was committed to Virginia. He's already had Tommy John surgery when he was a sophomore in high school. He attended a private school in Pennsylvanio and didn't pitch much as a junior as he recovered, but was heavily recruited thanks to his big 6-foot-7, 225-pound frame. His fastball has touched 93 mph at its best and sits around 90, and he also throws a slider and a changeup. He went 9-2, 0.57 with 83 strikeouts and just seven walks as a prep senior in 61 innings
