Yesterday, the MLB draft began with the first 2 rounds, plus some “Competitice Balance” rounds.
Well, the first former VBLer has been taken- Jonathan Bowlan, who pitched in New Market in 2016! Jonathan, a huge righthander at Memphis, was taken 58th overall by the Kansas City Royals.
The pick’s approximate value is $1.2 million!
(By the way, since 2006, Jonathan is the 7th highest draft pick ever. Can you name the 6 who went higher?)
