Last night the Royals selected Ashe Russell, Nolan Watson, and Josh Staumont with their first three picks of the draft. There will be analysis later on those picks and the entire draft as a whole once it's completed. Much like time, the draft continues on even if we don't fully understand what is happening.
Today teams will select their picks from round 3 to 10, and then tomorrow is the final day where the remaining picks will be selected.
Below is the Royals bonus pools for the remaining picks.
The Royals selection of Nolan Watson may dictate their decision for the remaining picks. Watson is committed to Vanderbilt (an extremely strong pitcher school) and he'll likely need the entire slot if not more to sign.
|21||Donny Everett||rhp||Clarksville (Tenn.) HS||Tenn.||4||
|34||Dakota Chalmers||rhp||North Forsyth HS, Cumming, Ga.||Ga.||4||
|35||Jalen Miller||ss||Riverwood International Charter, Sandy Springs, Ga.||Ga.||5||
|37||Jacob Nix||rhp||IMG Academy, Bradenton, Fla.||Fla.||6||
|39||Justin Hooper||lhp||De La Salle HS, Concord, Calif.||Calif.||7|
I wouldn't expect the Royals to be on any of these guys, especially those prep players such as Everett, Nix, and Hooper.
