Bowlan Taken in 2nd Round

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?)

Congratulations, Jonathan!
