MLB Draft 2016: Angels select prep OF Brandon Marsh with second round pick

New, 43 comments

In a move similar to last year's Jahmai Jones pick, the Angels took another raw, yet freakishly athletic high schooler in the second round. Brandon Marsh, OF for Buford High School (Georgia), is super athletic, very toolsy, but he's also a project, nowhere near ready for primetime.

Marsh is 18, stands 6'4 and weighs about 210. He was apparently a big dog on a championship high school team (played WR), and he's consistently moved up a lot of draft boards the past few months. He's got power in his bat, he's fast and he's strong. Hey, I can dig it. See you in a few years, Brandon!
