Who Is Spencer Thorkelson?

In the recent first round of picks, the Detroit Tigers baseball club selected Spencer Thorkelson, the first baseman at the University of Arizona. Interestingly, Thorkelson was declared as a third-base player, a position he had in high school, but not in college. The price of the No.1 MLB draft pick of the current year is estimated at $ 8.415 million. However, one may assume that the bonus for signing the first professional contract is slightly lower.

Is He Worth It?

Talented Thorkelson is only 20 years old, but he has already surprised everyone with power hitting, discipline, and indeed showed himself as a batter only from the best side. During his appearances in the NCAA and the summer student leagues, Thorkelson slashed .337 / .463 / .729, hit 54 home runs, 33 doubles, earned 110 walks and 100 strikeouts in 628 getting outs of batter`s box. His statistics at the start of this year’s season was brilliant (.340 / .598 / .780, 6 home runs, 31 walks, 15 strikeouts).

What about Future Chances?

For the Detroit Tigers` fans eagerly awaiting the completion of the process of changes in the team, the player`s success seems inspiring. The prospects of the “Tigers” for the future are quite bright, especially since in the coming years the first team of the Tigers should be supplemented by such promising baseball players as pitchers Casey Mays (the first pick of the 2018 MLB draft), Matt Manning and Tarik Skubal. Now, since Spencer Thorkelson is No.1 MLB draft pick, the team is likely to achieve success.
