Daniel Pigott UFlorida OF
Reds select OF Daniel Pigott from Florida.
Pigott is a .331 hitter who will take a walk, had 5 homers this year, can steal a base, hit .389 in the post season. 6-2 205, plays WR for the Gators football team. Has a 4.5 40.
1 more pick then the Reds are off the budget and on to the $100,000 cap per player rounds
Anytime a guy has athletic talents like Mejia-Brean you have to like the upside. They obviously went more for his ceiling than the stats.
Reds pick Jeremy Kivel, RHP, Spring HS, TX, in the 10th round.
Jeremy Kivel, Texas High school rhp
Mayo said Kivel's a 3rd or 4th round talent, but had a knee injury and that's why he slid.
Could be a GREAT pickup in the 10th round!
Pretty good draft so far. Tons of upside, high ceilings, a couple utility picks but even some upside in those guys if everything panned out
Kivel own words:
hello my name is jeremy kivel i am a RHP from spring, tx the highschool of current MLB pitcher josh beckett. I have always wanted to play college and pro-baseball and follow in his footsteps, it started at a young age when family and friends discovered that i have a GOD given arm and people still see that today. Also i have a GOD given work ethic and i always have to be the best at what i do no matter what. Im the first and last on the field at my highschool and if you ever get to see me on the mound i always have the fire in my eyes that this next pitch is going right past your bat, im not the biggest guy on the field at 6"1 but i have biggest heart. I play everygame as if it was my last. No matter what school i go to im going to want to bring you a championship and make history that is the type of player and person i am.
He is listed as 6-2 200 fastball at 94, has curve and iffy change, power arm. Wants to play pro ball but has a commitment to U. of Houston
Kivel has been clocked at 96 MPH and was sitting 93-94 in a recent showcase before blowing out his knee (for the second time in his life). Big sign if it happens.
Sounds like he's going to school.
