Drafted in the 7th round (216th overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2013 (signed for $55,000)
Harrell and Mike Yastrzemski give Vanderbilt two seniors who could go in the first 10 rounds. Harrell is the one with tools and pro-style body; Yastrezemski is the one with skills. Harrell was a 31st-round draft pick last year but didn't sign with the Tigers. He is an above-average runner despite a 6-foot-3, 215-pound frame and plays center field while Yastrzemski plays right. He's been one of the Commodores' top home run hitters for three seasons and was leading the team with 10 this spring. Harrell still has issues recognizing spin and with his two-strike approach, leading to plenty of strikeouts (30 percent of his at-bats in 2012, 27 percent in 2013). Still, few senior signs combine the physicality, power and athleticism with SEC performance like Harrell.
