Ryan O'Hearn
Name: Ryan Patrick O'Hearn
Born: Jul 26, 1993 in Frisco, Texas USA
College: Sam Houston State
Ht.: 6'3" / Wt.: 200 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 8th round (243rd overall) by the Kansas City Royals in 2014 (signed for $125,000)
O'Hearn wasn't drafted after a boffo high school career that included a second-team All-America performance as a senior outfielder. (Other second-reamers included Joey Gallo and Jose Fernandez.) He's been a three-year starter for Sam Houston State and was the Bearkats' top run producer as a junior. He has played primarily first base this season and will go as far as his bat takes him. O'Hearn has natural rhythm to his swing and plus pull power. He's aggressive to a fault and could use a better two-strike approach. He also needs work defensively, where he's below-average at first.
