With the first pick in the new Astros era, Jimmy Click goes right into the Bronx and does what well what everyone expects the Astros to do. Win.
Alex Santos, from Mount Saint Michael Academy who stands at 6’3 and weighs 185 and throws from the right side is the first center piece for the Click regime. Mlb.com has Santos as the #56 prospect in the 2020 class so like the previous draft classes this pick oozes with VALUE. BUT WAIT THERES MORE.
Santos leads this draft class with the highest spin rate. THE HIGHEST SPIN RATE. EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT WE DO WITH PITCHERS YET WHY ARE WE THE ONLY ONES WHO CONTINUE TO GET THE HIGHEST SPIN RATES. OH HELL YA SAINT STROM IS GOING TO MAKE SANTOS A STAR!!
Anyways, hell of a find by the scouts, the entire department and James Click.
