Round Overall Team Player Position State Bonus
3 92 Seattle Mariners Kevin Cron 1B Ariz.
C.J. Cron isn't the only Cron in this draft with a huge bat. His younger brother shattered the Arizona high school career home run record this year, finishing with 59, including 27 this season as he helped his team win a state title. Cron is almost a clone of his older brother. He has a softer body at 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, but it's all about the hitting and power tools for those two. Kevin has some arm strength but will be limited to first base because of his lack of athleticism and below-average speed. High school first basemen that hit from the right side of the plate aren't usually premium picks, but Cron's bat is that intriguing. He has good bat speed and well above-average raw power. Rumors had him looking for a seven-figure signing bonus, and if he doesn't get an offer to his liking he'd be happy to honor his commitment to Texas Christian.
