Spencer Turnbull taken in 2nd Round of MLB Draft


With the 63rd overall pick, Spencer Turnbull was selected by the Detroit Tigers, a team that absolutely loves its big power arms.

With his success this last year, I imagine they'll give him a shot as a starter in the minors, but with only 2 notable pitches and some consistency problems, his most likely position is that of a late inning power reliever. This is a great pickup for the Tigers, and it's great for Turnbull as well, as this was rather higher than he'd been projected to go.

He's the highest overall pick out of 'bama since Tommy Hunter went to the Rangers 54th overall in 2007, coming in just ahead of Jimmy Nelson, the 64th overall pick to the Brewers in 2010.
