Default Official MLB Draft Thread - Day 2 - June 8th

To start the day, the White Sox select with their 19th round pick...

Jordan Danks, OF, Round Rock HS (TX)

Quote:
Danks has one of the more attractive power bats in the draft, which could have made him a first-round pick were he considered signable. Initially, there was talk that Danks wanted a similar bonus to the $2.1 million his brother John received from the Rangers as the ninth overall pick two years ago. Then he begged out of the draft altogether by telling any team that asked that he planned on attending Texas. If he gets picked at all, it likely will be as a late-round flier. Danks dominated the home run derby at the 2004 AFLAC All-America Game, beating Cameron Maybin by knocking several balls completely out of the park and onto a street behind right field in Aberdeen, Md. Because he's so big, his swing can get long at times, and he still needs to make adjustments against lefthanders and breaking pitches. But it's easy to imagine Danks becoming a big league home run champion one day. He's a fine athlete for his size, and his arm and instincts should make him a good right fielder.
His brother John is a top prospect in the Texas organization. This is a stretch to sign him.

From MLB.com...

Sent a letter to all teams asking not to be drafted. Gonna take top-10-pick type of money to sign him. Would certainly make up for not having a second rounder, LOL!
