No locals taken on first day of Major League Baseball draft

The Miami Marlins made left handed pitcher Trevor Rogers out of Carlsbad (N.M.) High School, their top choice in the MLB Draft with hopes that he will some day be on their roster in South Florida at some point down the road.

Through one night and 75 picks of action, the 2017 MLB Draft has been a fascinating one thus far, with some teams playing it smart with their bonus pool money, others going all out for high upside talent, and others clearly looking for polish with their early selections.

Slot value for the No. 1 overall pick this year is $7.77 million, but the Twins aren't expected to pay that much to steer Lewis away from a University of California, Irvine commitment.

"I don't even know yet", Greene said, wearing a Cincinnati cap and jersey. "It was an unbelievable feeling".

The Oakland A's used the sixth overall pick on outfielder Austin Beck of North Davidson High School in Lexington, N.C. In 28 games as a senior, Beck batted.590 with 12 home runs and 38 RBIs.

Lewis is perhaps the most polarizing top prospect in this year's draft.

"In my opinion, Royce Lewis is the best player in the country", Kay told Baseball America.

Greene didn't stay on the board for long and became the second overall pick with the Cincinnati Reds, who targeted him over college pitchers Brendan McKay and Kyle Wright.

"I feel like I haven't grown into my man strength yet", Lewis said in describing himself to reporters on a conference call, "but you use speed for everything: defensively, offensively, and it helps with range".

The Twins, however, passed on Greene, allowing the Reds to strike.

Lewis also played outfield at JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, Calif.

The firepower: Greene has been clocked as high as 102 miles per hour, seemingly effortlessly.

--Cory Abbott, a right-handed pitcher who tossed the first ideal game in the history of Loyola Marymount University baseball on March 25, was taken in the second round (67th overall) by the Chicago Cubs.

At No. 3, San Diego selected North Carolina prep left-hander MacKenzie Gore, marking the first time since 1990 that the top three picks were all high school players. As a senior, he was 3-0 with a 0.75 ERA over 5 appearances, collecting 43 strikeouts with just 4 walks over 28.0 innings pitched. "They're getting the full package, I believe". "He loves him. He says he's a great kid, a hard worker and the kind of person we want in our system".

In a touching moment that drew a standing ovation from the former major leaguers serving as team representatives, 11-year-old Yankees fan Landis Sims - born without hands or feet - announced his favorite team's first-round selection: SC right-hander Clarke Schmidt at No. 16 overall. His mid-90s fastball, biting slider and easy delivery still kept many teams interested. No experts or reporters were able to crack the Twins front office and figure out who the club would be taking at the top of the draft.
