Royals Select Wil Myers in Third Round

Wil Myers is thought to be one of the best, if not the best catcher available in the draft. The Royals drafted the 6-3, 185-pounder out of Wesleyan Christian Academy in N.C. and they were happy to get him. At least one projection had him being drafted by the Royals in the first round, with the 12th overall pick.

Myers has power, good bat speed and good hand strength. He is a strong, athletic player with an above average arm behind the plate. His weakness at the plate includes mechanical flaws that don’t allow him to cover the outside corner. You can read more about him at MLB.com.
