Our first three picks were Clayton Kershaw, Bryan Morris and Preston Mattingly, the son of Don Mattingly. Incredibly, several people got the first two right, but no one had Mattingly in the mix. We’ll sort out the winners shortly.
In the meantime, a quick word from Logan White on our new Dodger draftees:
Overall, we got two power arms with the first two picks and we wanted a high ceiling overall athlete with the third pick.
Kershaw: He’s a big, strong power pitcher with a power arm. He reminds me a bit of Dave Righetti. He’s got an excellent delivery and great makeup.
Morris: He’s a great competitor with a plus fastball and a late power curveball. He reminds me of John Smoltz.
Mattingly: Obviously he comes from a great bloodlines but he is his own person. He’s a fantastic athlete with a chance to be a great all-around Major League player.
