Re: 2009 Redszone mock draft selection thread
With their 1st round pick, the Kansas City Royals select: P Alex White, UNC
While there are addmittedly questions surrounding his arm, White provides the type of upside KC is looking for. In a couple years, the Royals have a great chance to compete in the AL Central.
White has shown a high 90's FB, great sink, and movement. He was widely considered the second best pitcher in the draft before the season began. After a few struggles, his stock has plummeted, but his talent is still there.
Kansas City also considered Bobby Borchering, Reymond Fuentes, and the HS pitchers still available.
