Drafted in the 4th round (134th overall) by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2022 (signed for $397,500)
A 19th-round pick of the Yankees last year, Keegan opted to return to Vanderbilt for his senior season. That did give him a chance to catch more, something he’d done rarely since a blood clot before his sophomore season required surgery to remove a rib. On a Vanderbilt team where a lot of hitters struggled this year, Keegan was a consistent force as a cleanup hitter. He hit .371/.458/.646 and had a 1.035 OPS for his career. He has plus power potential to go with an average bat. He’s gotten better and better at making consistent hard contact. Keegan’s bat is far ahead of his glove. He’s a fringy defender at first base, where he’s primarily played at Vandy, and below-average at catcher. He did play 24 games in 2022 as Vanderbilt’s backup catcher, but his blocking and throwing are both below-average at best. Keegan struggles to smother balls in the dirt. Too often they carom well away from the plate. His transfer is reasonably quick, but his throws often bounce, leaving him with 2.0-2.1-second pop times. As a first baseman/backup catcher/DH with a track record of hitting in the SEC, Keegan looks to be a quality senior sign.
