Brooklyn probably needed a SS.

I don't want to say "Meh" about anybody cause they deserve a better reception than that, but he's less exciting than picks 11-14 to me.

Just throwing it out there, but he only had 1 year in Division 1. As a sophmore in CC he hit 5 homers, stole 23 bases. Might have been an adjustment hurting his numbers.

He's got some size, got some muscles in his forarms

Article from a year ago when he was at CC after a walk-off hit.

I think he might be a legit 15th round pick and possibly a late bloomer in college. 0 homers is low, 43Ks is a little high, but he hit .335 Worth a look.

"It was a special moment," Snypes said. "Me, my dad, my mom and my brother's fiance were sitting at the house. I was expecting a phone call on day three but the wait's probably the biggest - I hated the most but it was a special moment. I was excited."

"I always talked about [playing in the MLB] growing up," Snypes said. "Me and my friends were dreaming about it. It's a special moment, like I said. You can't really explain it."

"He had the tools but he had to work to get to where he's at," said Gavin [HS Coach], who's now an assistant baseball coach at West Jones. "You heard about the guys to be the last one's off the field? [That was Snypes] every day. I couldn't throw him enough [batting practice] or hit him enough ground balls. He loved it and he just ate it up."

Not that big of a deal since it doesn't count toward the bonus pool.

I dont, good for the kid, ain't my money and not effecting the pool. That said, he must be one hell of a fluid athlete that they think can offer plus defense at a premium position. His average is good, but not great, for a small school player, and it's helped by a high BABIP. He also strikes out a ton for a guy with that kind of a power deficit. Also wasn't able to earn free passes, so if he does have baserunning skills, doesn't look like they wI'll be on display.
