Rays Select Mikie Mahtook at 31

With their second pick of the first round, the Rays selected LSU outfielder Mikie Mahtook. At pick 31, Mahtook was arguably the best player available on the draft board sans for Josh Bell. At 6-foot-1 and just under 200 pounds, Mahtook can play all three outfield with a chance to play centerfield at the next level.

He does not have one skill that jumps off the table, but has good power, pretty good speed, and a good enough arm. He shows quick hands with the ability to hit to all fields from the right side. In addition to the tools, Mahtook has solid plate discipline and has been described as a good character guy.
