Drafted in the 35th round (1058th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2018 (signed for $208,950)
Americaan was a 34th-round pick of the Rangers last year and a 28th-round pick of the Diamondbacks out of high school. He'll almost assuredly go three-for-three on being drafted this year as the Curacao native is a plus runner who covers plenty of ground in center field but needs to do a better job with his reads and routes. There's plenty of athleticism and an above-average arm. The lefthanded hitter has a line-drive approach with below-average power that profiles as a top-of-the-order table-setter or a bottom-of-the-order bat. He hit .409/.492/.558 for Chipola this season with 28 walks and 11 hit-by-pitches to help boost his on-base percentage.
