2009 Draft Standout

While some of the Tigers’ higher round picks like Wade Gaynor (3rd round) and Edwin Gomez (4th round) have struggled so far this year, the Tigers ninth round draft pick, John Murrian, has had an outstanding season for the Oneonta Tigers.  The scouting report on him has him as an above average fielder and with little power at the plate but a good eye.  So far, he’s lived up to that with a 16/12 strikeout to walk ratio in 105 at bats.  You have to love that .420 on base percentage.  The backup catcher at Oneonta and the Tigers 18th round pick, Eric Roof, is also having a decent season.  I wonder if that 6’5″, 185 lb line is accurate.  That’s pretty tall and skinny for a catcher.

Signing day is coming up and the Tigers have yet to sign their top two picks, Jacob Turner (1) and Andrew Oliver (2).  So far, the Dombrowski front office has a perfect record so I’m optimistic they’ll be able to get some deals done.
