The Dodgers concluded their second day of the 2017 MLB Draft, selecting Kentucky outfielder Zach Reks with their 10th-round pick, No. 310 overall.
Through 10 rounds, the Dodgers have drafted nine college players — five pitchers and four position players — and one high school pitcher.
Reks hit .352/.461/.471 as a senior in 2017, with 16 doubles and three home runs in 65 games. He had more walks (42) than strikeouts (26), and also stole 15 bases in 18 attempts.
Reks was not listed on either David Hood’s top 200 draft prospects, the Baseball America top 500, nor the MLB Pipeline top 200.
The slot value for the No. 310 overall pick is $131,600.
Thanks @Dodgers for making my childhood dream come to life. My family and I are extraordinarily grateful for the opportunity. Col 3:23— Zachary Reks (@ReksCity) June 14, 2017
