SS - MIA - MiLB
The Marlins signed 2021 first-round pick, prep SS Kahlil Watson.
Watson fell to No. 16 overall in this year's draft, despite the fact that he was generally considered a top-eight prospect in this class. A player who possesses electrifying bat speed to go along with speed on the bases as well, Watson will be a fantasy relevant prospect once his career gets going. He'll be one of the top picks in first year player drafts this offseason.
The Marlins have selected prep shortstop Kahlil Watson with the 16th overall selection in the 2021 MLB Draft.
Watson was projected by many to be a top-10 pick in the draft, and several analysts ranked him as a top-five prospect. Money concerns and a small frame were likely the biggest factors in his tumble to No. 16. In Watson, the Marlins get a spectacular runner with a nice blend of hitting and glovework. Despite being just 5-foot-9, Watson has also been able to produce impressive power as a left-handed hitter.
