Further down the undrafted juco line is College of the Desert infielder Kurt Mertins, a plus runner whose speed had attracted scouts. An injury opened a spot at shortstop for the erstwhile second baseman, and he showed more arm strength than expected to go with good hands. If he adds strength, he might be able to handle the position as a pro.
