Rays Draft Riley Unroe | The Process Report

Rays Draft Riley Unroe

The Rays selected prep shortstop Riley Unroe with the 60th pick in the 2013 MLB draft. We covered Unroe earlier this week, summing him up as, “A switch-hitter who figures to play an up-the-middle position with enough bat to slot in near the top of the order.”

Perfect Game ranked Unroe as the 49th-best prospect in the draft, adding, “The 6-foot, 180-pound Unroe has exponentially improved his draft worth in a matter of 2-3 months by not just improving his power production by leaps and bounds, but possibly becoming the top power threat in the Arizona high-school ranks by launching numerous tape-measure blasts.”

It’s worth noting that Unroe has favorable bloodlines and a Joe Maddon connection: His father Tim played in parts of five big-league seasons, including time with the 1999 Angels, with whom Maddon served as the club’s bench coach.
