Drafted in the 13th round (394th overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2015 (signed for $100,000)
Salters didn't actually begin playing baseball until he was 13 as he lived in Kenya and Tanzania with his missionary parents. Drafted by the Nationals in the 22nd round last year, Salters is old for a junior (22). Teams like his short, direct lefthanded stroke that is geared more for line drives than for home runs although he has plenty of raw power. He's tapped into it more consistently in summer ball in Alaska and the Northwoods League than with the Patriots. But there are questions about whether he can handle the defensive responsibilities to stay at catcher. He has plenty of arm, but his receiving, agility and blocking all need to improve.
