M’s Tab SS Marcus Littlewood at #67
I talked a lot about him on the draft preview yesterday. It’s another slight overdraft, but opinion on Littlewood is mixed enough that you could find people who thought he was a legitimate first-round pick. The M’s knew they wanted this guy and weren’t going to take any chances with it. He’s a baseball through and through, like a lot of guys the M’s selected last year, so regardless of what you think of his long term potential, he’s a good bet to work hard and come close to maximizing his physical abilities. The floor is a utility player, the ceiling is a defensive-minded third baseman who could hit you about twenty home runs or more as a switch-hitter.
