2nd round pick: Jason Esposito, 3B, Vanderbilt

Don: Jason is a nice pick at this point in the draft and a re-draft from the Royals (7th round).  He was a top 50 player on my board and getting valued College bat.  He displays a strong arm and nimble enough to stay at the hot corner.  The key is consistency.  If he were consistent with his bat, he would have easily been a first round pick.  I think he shows solid contant and power potential at the plate, but will have to quite down and improve upon his foundation.  He could be a plus +.280 hitter with a chance for +20 power potential.  If he can fill out, the power curve has the potential to increase.

More to come later today.
