    Reds select CF Phil Ervin in first round

    Bio from MLB.com:

    PHILLIP ERVIN, OF, SAMFORD UNIV.
    5'10" 200lbs DOB: 07/15/92 | Scouting video
    Performing well in the Cape Cod League is always a plus for college hitters, and Ervin set himself up extremely well this summer, winning the Cape MVP award while reaching double-digits in home runs and steals. Ervin's a good pure hitter with some pop, and he has plus speed to go along with it. That speed allows him to play a good center field. The only knocks against him might be that he's not the biggest guy in the world and he doesn't play for a huge college power in Samford. He continued to perform like he did in the Cape during his junior season, keeping many teams very interested. After a very strong sophomore season on both sides of the ball, Gonzales kept it going for USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team over the summer. He carried it over to his junior season, pitching and hitting well for the 'Zags. Clearly a very good athlete who can handle the bat, it's his left arm that could have him drafted in the first round in June.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    Cards took a LHP. He'll be 8-1 with a 2.03 ERA this time next year in STL.

    Yep, just what the Cards needed to do....shore up that lousy pitching staff they got.

    Just watched a couple of YouTube videos FWIW (if anything), and I really liked his compact swing & quick hands. He seems to be a patient hitter as well.

    As scouts might say, he appears to have that good "baseball body", regardless of his 5'10" or so, stature.
