Anthony Rendon is the player we want the Pirates to take with the first pick in the MLB Draft. Our mind is made up. So we bring you the latest we could find on the best baseball player available in the 2011 draft.
It’s unfortunate there aren’t any more real promotional videos to link. Rendon has spent most of the season getting pitched around and on many occassions intentionally walked. His season has been a difficult one thus far, but it’s far from over.
It could be the curse of Dejan too. That’s what we are going with at least. Rendon has hit three homeruns this season and has a slugging of .556. His OBP of 561 tells the real story of his season, the guy is on base at an insane rate with no signs of stopping.
Rendon talks about the first homerun and his sore shoulder. He brushes off the shoulder injury matter of factly and I believe he talks about a week of rest helping it.
