Royals select Arkansas OF Eric Cole in round four

With the 122nd pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, the Kansas City Royals selected Arkansas OF Eric Cole.

Eric Cole reminds me a lot of the Kyle Isbel pick from round 3 in that, this is an advanced college bat that ought to move quickly through the Royals system. Cole hit .328/.414/.543 with 13 HR and 12 doubles in 60 games with the Razorbacks this season. Cole is a switch hitter that features more power from the right side of the plate and a better hit tool on the left side of the plate. Probably a corner outfielder, decent speed, really good feel for the strike zone at the plate.
