The Dodgers with their third-round pick in the 2017 MLB Draft selected Houston catcher Connor Wong, with the No. 100 overall pick. He is the third college pick by the Dodgers in their first three selections.
Wong hit .287/.379/.494 with 12 home runs as a junior for Houston, and also during his time with the Cougars played at third base and in the outfield.
Baseball America described Wong as someone with a “wide-ranging tool set makes him tough to profile, but makes for an intriguing, versatile package.”
“While he's strong for his size -- charitably listed at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds -- he's small for a catcher and there's some concern about whether he'll be able to handle the workload of a long pro season,” read his MLB.com scouting report. “If not, he fits the utility profile because he's capable of playing almost anywhere on the diamond.”
