Rendon is getting pitched around, and the level of competition – Games with Arizona (2), Stanford (3), Southern Cal (3), Texas A&M (1) is very good to excellent. And, this is the first year that metal bats are gone and composite bats have taken their place. He hit his 3rd HR over the weekend and has 4 or 5 doubles as a part of his .435 batting average. Also 13 Walks/5 K’s. Mail the pick in now – he will be our No. 1 Draft Pick in June.
