2011 MLB Mock Draft: Do Rangers Want To Corral Travis Harrison With 33rd Pick?
2011 MLB Mock Draft Gives Texas Rangers 3B Travis Harrison With 33rd Overall Pick
Texas had the best farm system in baseball last year, and a lot of that talent graduated to the Majors last season as the team made its first run to the World Series. They have this pick thanks to the Phillies signing Cliff Lee away in the offseason.
The draft philosophy has changed since Nolan Ryan took over as owner. They tend to go after athletes who project well in the Majors. Travis Harrison fits the mold of what this team goes after.
He has a great future with the bat, but scouts are unsure of where he will play on the field. He has a swing that will allow him to hit for a high average and power at the Major League level. He has good discipline and should draw more than his share of walks.
He has played third base in high school, but will in all likelihood end up at first base when all is said and done. The bat is going to carry him to The Show, though.
