Calabrese picked by Los Angeles Angels
OBJ star David Calabrese was selected by the Los Angeles Angels in the third round with the 82nd overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft on Thursday night.
The Canadian-born outfielder blew scouts away with his speed at the 2019 national tournament, and did more of the same as a standout for the World Team at International Week later that year, hitting the first-ever inside-the-park home run in the three-year history of the event.
QUICK SCOUTING REPORT FROM CEO JEREMY BOOTH:
True CF with plenty of bat. Reminds of Jacoby Ellsbury. He’s their leadoff hitter in a few years and can help create runs multiple ways. Excellent makeup kid who loves to compete.
