Scouting Report: 302nd overall pick, Austin Lambright, LHP, Central Oklahoma

With the 302nd overall pick (tenth round) in the 2018 MLB Draft, the Royals have selected Austin Lambright, LHP out of Central Oklahoma.

The Royals finished off day two of the MLB Draft by taking another college arm, this one raining from Central Oklahoma. Another big framed lefty, Lambright originally spent his first three years of his college career at Abilene Christian. In his final season there, he pitched 62.2 innings as a starter, walking 89 and striking out 69 on his way to a 5.74 ERA.

He’s never really pitched well in college, suggesting he might be another project pitchers. There are clear control and command issues here, so maybe the Royals see something to fix.
