JULIO RODRIGUEZ GOES #1 TO THE CHICAGO MOBSTERS

Julio_Rodriguez1-2020With the first pick in the 2020 Mid-West Baseball League Draft, the Chicago Mobsters select from the Seattle Mariners Organization – right-handed-hitting outfielder Julio Rodriguez.

Chicago’s management feels there isn’t a prospect in the draft with more upside than Rodriguez.

A Chance to be a run-producing impact bat, one who hits for average & power, Rodriguez has an advanced approach at the plate, especially given his age & excellent raw power. 

Described as a physical beast – he might have 70 Raw Power & the ability to play a corner outfield, with an arm perfectly suited for right field.

Rodríguez was one of only three 18-year old teenagers to play High-A ball in 2019 & not only did he reach that level—he dominated it for 17 games.

For Rodríguez, he’s constantly focused on improving his approach at the plate, an approach that evaluators inside and outside baseball describe as extremely advanced. 

An athletic specimen and five-tool player, advanced beyond his years, with a ceiling so high it lets your imagination run wild!

Balancing the charisma of a future star with the work ethic of a 25th-man grinder – Julio Rodriguez is just that & now he’s property of the Chicago Mobsters organization.

Once again the Chicago Mobsters Select Julio Rodriguez with the #1 Pick in the 2020 Mid-West Baseball League Draft.
