Drafted in the 5th round (144th overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2018 (signed for $364,600)
Koch established himself as a potential first-day pick as a sophomore, when he hit 13 home runs for Arkansas and followed that up by hitting .372 with 10 walks and 11 strikeouts in 43 at-bats for USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team last summer. He's failed to match that production as a junior, though, as he was hitting .273/.386/.448 with seven home runs as of mid-May. Koch has struggled as pitchers worked him away constantly in the SEC this year, but he still has a good understanding of the strike zone and could produce solid on-base percentages with the power to run into 15 home runs with everyday at-bats. Defensively, he's shown steady improvement. His average arm plays up because he's accurate with his throws and his footwork and transfer have gotten better at Arkansas. His lateral movement is his biggest challenge defensively and he'll have to continue to work on improving his agility.
