M’s Take RF Jabari Blash at #252
Well this guy is pretty much begging to get a rum-based mixed drink named after him, in no small part since he’s originally of the Virgin Islands. Close enough, right?
Blash has a couple of things going against him. He was kicked off the Miami Dade team earlier in the season for reasons I’m not privy to at the moment. He was a ninth-rounder with the Rangers last year and didn’t sign despite being offered a quarter million. Another 6’5 guy who’s a bit of a heavyweight, Blash hits well, just not for power, and that’s going to be key to his future success. He runs decently for his size and has a strong arm, so he profiles as a right fielder in the long run.
