Jonathan Engelmann
Name: Jonathan James Engelmann
Born: Sep 18, 1996 in Lancaster, Pa. USA
High School: Burlingame (Calif.) HS
College: Michigan
Ht.: 6'4" / Wt.: 210 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 31st round (943rd overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2018 (signed for $100,000)
A 28th-round pick of the Twins out of high school in 2015, Engelmann should go earlier in this year's draft on the heels of an extremely productive junior season that has seen him hit .359/.442/.530 with 21 steals in 29 attempts at the end of the regular season. Engelmann is a plus runner who covers plenty of ground in center field and is adept at going back on balls. He also has an above-average arm that would fit in right field as well. Despite his productive season, there are scouts who are concerned that good velocity can beat him. But his tools package and breakout junior season should sway a team to buy in on his development.
