I see you had it up first.

Just became the school's all time hit leader. A nice pick in the 12th rd.

This is a guy I thought made sense in rounds 4-10 too. Either way, I like it as far as senior signs go.

Probably a bit optimistic on my part. He has played there some, but more RF.

Edited topic from CF to OF. Don't want to give anyone false hope.

MLB.com thinks he can. Here's the writeup:
"Duplantis tied the LSU career hits record with No. 352 in the Tigers' second game of the NCAA Regionals. This season alone, the senior has hit .317 with 11 home runs and six steals in 63 starts. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound outfielder is a great athlete who has the ability to play center. A left-handed hitter, he has line-drive gap power, and he's a well above-average runner, too."

According to one of PG's scouting directors, he's a LFer, but take that fwiw. Has a terrific swing regardless.

#Mets keep loading up on seniors and Antoine Duplantis is one of the better ones. LSU career hit leader, marginal tools elsewhere, fits in LF but has always hit.

I've never really heard defense being his strength, but the interesting thing is that he began showing power this year. Nice pick and a guy to watch.

Bummer they lost. I would have liked to have seen LSU advance to get more of a look at Duplantis. Ah well. Next stop Brooklyn.

Mangum, Ashford, Duplantis, and Taylor should be one of the more fun Brooklyn OFs in awhile.
