Among the interesting picks on Day 2 of the draft was the Brewers selecting the son of agent Scott Boras, high school third baseman Trent Boras, in the 30th round.
In addition to having the sport’s most famous agent as his father Boras is also said to be leaning toward bypassing pro ball to attend USC, so he’ll probably be the most expensive 30th-round pick in baseball history if the Brewers do end up signing him.
Brewers scouting director Bruce Seid described Boras as “a good player” and “a left-handed hitter who makes contact, he’s pretty good with the glove at third base.”
Surely his father is preparing one of his famous iPad presentations describing how a high school third baseman who combines Mike Schmidt’s power and Wade Boggs’ hitting with Brooks Robinson’s glove lasted all the way to the 30th round. I predict a seven-year, $144 million deal, followed by pitch-by-pitch coverage of his entire career in Jon Heyman’s column.
