Misner heading to the sunshine state
COLUMBIA - The Miami Marlins selected Kameron Misner with the 35th overall pick in Monday's MLB Draft.
The left-handed hitter batted .286 this season, with 10 home runs and 32 runs batted in. He also notched a 95 percent success-rate on stolen bases, nabbing 20 bases out of 21 attempts.
Misner is widely considered a five-tool player, playing all three outfield position and first base for the Tigers. The lefty is ranked near the top in the SEC for stolen bases and walks this season.
The last Mizzou alum drafted in the first round was Tanner Houck in 2017, when the Boston Red Sox took him with the 24th pick in the first round. However, this isn't Misner's first draft experience. The Kansas City Royals drafted him in the 33rd round in 2016.
