The second day provided the Reds with an interesting mixed bag of potential.
Sticking with the theme of the first day—picking college players—the Redlegs snagged some young players from some major universities.
Of all the picks made on Friday, the most intriguing for one reason or another must be Brian O’Grady. The left-handed swinging first baseman is a Rutgers Scarlet Knight, much like current fan favorite Todd Frazier. While not drafted as highly as Frazier, O’Grady carries on the Scarlet Knight pride.
The youngest player drafted so far for Cincinnati has been Shane Mardirosian, the short in stature, huge-in-heart, second baseman out of California. At just 18 years young, Mardirosian still will not even turn 19 until the conclusion of the season.
As if Friday’s action was not hot and heavy enough, Saturday will resemble rapid fire with players coming off the board with seemingly no rhyme or reason.
There are gems to be found on the final day, and superstars that fans have not yet even begun to fantasize about.
