New Mexico’s Luis Gonzalez is MWC’s First Pick in MLB Draft

New Mexico’s Gonzalez first MWC player to be drafted

Luis Gonzalez Goes in Round Three

He’s the 87th pick which ain’t bad for a utility player. Now that’s a thinly veiled insult as it really means he can play a multitude of positions but the White Sox drafted him as a CF. He hit .361 with 8 dingers and has speed as 18 steals shows. Speed and power, two good tools for a centerfielder. He’s a junior and I expect he’ll sign as the typical bonus for this slot is in the neighborhood of $636K; wouldn’t you?

More to come.......
