MLB Draft 2015 highlights: Dansby Swanson leads the pack

Major League Baseball draft is the most talked about topic among baseball fans across the US. To be true, it is the biggest topic among the fans of the game even beyond the borders of the US.

And most baseball fans are actually talking about how Dansby Swanson is hogging the limelight among his peers. Arizona Diamondbacks got hold of the Vanderbilt slugger Dansby Swanson in the Major League Baseball draft Monday.

Another top of the line pick this season in Alex Bregman from LSU who has been picked up by none other than Houston. One more player who seems to be in the same league of the top pick is none other than Florida high schooler Brendan Rodgers who has been picked by Colorado.

There is no denying the fact that the shortstops are hopping the limelight. Another shortstop went No. 10 overall, with Philadelphia grabbing Georgia high schooler Cornelius Randolph. This is amazing as to how as many as eight shortstops were acquired in the first round. This means that it equals the all time high number of shortstops who were acquired twice in the year 1971 and then again in 2002.

Dansby Swanson who emerged as the top pick was ecstatic. The allotted signing bonus for that slot is a mind-blowing $8.6 million or even higher. “You can’t really script a moment better than that. It was pretty phenomenal”, said he.
