MLB Draft 2012: A Rundown Of the Arizona Diamondbacks' Picks

After a fast and furious second day at the MLB Draft, the Arizona Diamondbacks have now made 15 selections. With the 26th overall pick, the D-Backs went with catcher Stryker Trahan, a high schooler out of Acadiana in Louisiana. With their 2nd and 3rd picks, they took a shortstop out of Los Altos HS California named Jose Munoz and a right-handed pitcher out of Arizona State, Jake Barrett.

With the 153rd overall pick, the D-Backs chose CF Chuck Taylor. With 183 overall, they went with another catcher, Ronnie Freeman out of Kennesaw State. According to MLB.com's scouting report on Freeman, he "is a good power-hitting college catcher who isn't a bad defender, either. Freeman has shown he is capable of being a middle-of-the-order bat this season at Kennesaw State by driving in runs and showing off his above-average power. He has good strike-zone discipline and has shown the ability to draw walks consistently. Defensively, he has a decent arm but doesn't have the quickness behind the plate that you want out a catcher. He should have the ability to stay behind the plate in pro ball, and this, combined with his power potential, should make him a valuable prospect in the Draft."

With the 213th pick, Arizona grabbed 3B Jacob Lamb of the Washington Huskies. Check out the 6'3, 215 pound left-handed batter's scouting video here.
