The San Diego Padres selected Cameron Monger in the 27th round of the 2009 MLB Draft out of New Mexico. MadFriars.com caught up with the outfielder in an exclusive interview to find out more about his lack of playing time, his potential for upside, and his game-changing speed, among other topics.
After leading the nation in steals at Howard (Texas) junior college, Cameron Monger followed a juco coach that managed in the same league - heading to New Mexico.
His playing time, however, was almost non-existent this season. Monger logged just 35 at-bats with the Lobos - but still managed to swipe nine bases.
The decision to go to New Mexico isn't something he regrets, but there are many who believe that Monger has just begun to tap his potential.
