COULD THIS BE Pick #20 in the first round for the Los Angeles Dodgers: Zack Collins, C/1B, University of Miami
Selection made by Jerry Espinoza, InsidetheHalos Contributor
Collins is an on-base machine. He set the pace for Miami with a .540 OBP, and hit .364 with 12 home runs. He is still fresh for a catcher and improved in his first full season as a the main catcher at Miami. It still is possible he will move to 1B but for now he has improved enough to stay behind the plate. Dodgers have Miami alums in Yasmani Grandal and Garrett Kennedy, and now add a solid bat with average and power ability. Collins was All-ACC in both 2015 and 2016 and has been compared to Michael Conforto with more pop.
