Drafted in the 9th round (268th overall) by the Seattle Mariners in 2018 (signed for $65,000)
A four-year starter with Georgia, McGovern had a breakout season this spring and hit .324/.442/.627 with 14 home runs and 12 doubles. He was named a first-team all-SEC player for his performance. That effort comes on the heels of a solid, yet unspectacular junior campaign when McGovern had 14 multi-hit games but just a pair of home runs. With McGovern's above-average raw power beginning to show in games, teams could think of him as a quality senior sign. He has little track record with a wood bat, however, and he will be limited to a corner outfield position in pro ball. During McGovern's one summer in the Cape Cod League in 2016, he hit just .156/.301/.312, though he is a completely different hitter nearly two years later. McGovern has battled back injuries throughout his time with Georgia, including a brief spell this spring, but he's played at least 48 games in each of his four seasons at Georgia.
