The Angels made the 277th pick of the 2013 MLB draft in the ninth round. It was the eighth player pick allotted to them so far and they had selected seven pitchers.

With this pick they chose a catcher. They chose their only draft pick older than Mike Trout. They chose Stephen McGee, a catcher out of Central Florida State University and a Florida native.

Born in February of 1991, McGee is know for his great plate discipline and takes a lot of walks.

His twitter handle is: https://twitter.com/ElEsteban09 so check him out there and see if he wants to leave the Deep South for civilization.

After all these pitchers taken it was time to have someone catching them. Considering his age, look for a fast signing and perhaps a spot on the Burlington Bees roster, the Low-A pitching-focused Midwest league affiliate of the Angels. There could be a spot for him in Orem in the Rookie Pioneer league as well but with the number of arms taken ahead of position players, the coming summer roster purge should give McGee a chance to get a leg up on the in-team competition.
