Hopes Placed On High School Star Josh Lowe

June 10th, 2016

SilvermanYesterday, the Rays drafted high school star third baseman Josh Lowe from Georgia yesterday with the No. 13 overall pick.

Hard to get hyped about high school guys unless they’re alleged can’t-miss prospects drafted in the top 5. It’s a long, long road for Lowe, who might arrive just in time to replace Evan Longoria.

Meet Lowe below.

    I never liked drafting a high school kid in the 1st round. Too much variables, money, ($3,000,000 ?) and pressure for that age (See Tim Beckham). At 6′ 4″ & 180 pounds, he could grow out of the 3rd base position. I’m sure he’ll a good player, but in my world, unless he’s a can’t miss top 5 pick, go with someone older.

    Amazing, not a pitcher in the 1st 3 rounds ! Has that ever happened before ?

    What they need to draft are catchers in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds. They’ve got pitchers up the ying yang.

    Maybe, they can convert this 1st round pick into a great 1st baseman like Loney was. The only knock on Loney as his speed on the bases.

    Believe it or not, Miguel, the Rays have 3 catchers in the minors, all drafted in the 1st round by them. They’re trying. One of them with a bad back. One that just had tommy John surgery after they drafted him, and one that can’t hit.
