With the 94th overall pick (third round) in the MLB Draft, the Royals select Kyle Isbel, 2B from UNLV.
The Royal had been linked to Isbel before the draft, probably targeting him in the second or third round. This continues their run of college picks, making it now six of them in six selections.
It is interesting that the Royals announced the pick with Isbel as a second baseman. He was one of the more highly rated outfielders in this draft.
The slot money for this pick is $594,800.
