MLB Draft Live Blog

I dig the Rays selection of Mikie Mahtook.  Mahtook will definitely stick in centerfield with a good arm, good instincts and great speed making him above average at a premium defensive position.  He'll likely just be average offensively, though his swing has some indications that he'll hit for power.  I don't like to do player comparisons but he reminds me of Drew Stubbs.  Mahtook will end up as a fan favorite in Tampa due to his incessant hustle and wreckless playing style.  He is Sam Fuld's successor in the PR department.
