6/4:With the ninth overall selection in the 2018 MLB Amateur draft, the Oakland Athletics selected 20-year-old outfielder Kyler Murray out of Oklahoma University as a sophomore. Standing at 5-foot-11 and 195 pounds, Murray holds the potential to be a balanced power/contact, high-speed leadoff man in the outfield, most likely at center field for the Athletics. Murray holds scouting grades of 50 hitting, 50 power, 70 running, 40 arm and 55 fielding on the 20-80 scale. However, he looks to be a more of a project for the next couple of years. The Athletics rank 18th in MiLB.com's Position Player Farm System Rankings. However, he will have to compete with top Athletics outfielder prospects such as Jorge Mateo, Dustin Fowler, Austin Beck and Lazaro Armenteros. The Athletics don't have many long-term outfielders on the team currently besides Khris Davis, so Murray will be given every chance to actively compete with the aforementioned prospects. Murray does remain a unique talent, though, as he was a quarterback for the Oklahoma football team, so there are some questions as to what sport he will end up playing.--Caden Inaba - RotoBaller
