The Minnesota Twins have signed 50th overall pick Travis Harrison, as first reported by Kendall Rogers of Perfect Game USA. The USC commit signed for $1.05 million, according to Baseball America's Jim Callis.
One of the best power bats in the country, scouts can not wait to see what the 18-year-old can develop into. Only 18 years old, Harrison can develop into a middle-of-the-order bat any team would love to have. While being considered one of the best bats in the country is no small feat, Harrison will have to move from the hot corner. A sloth defensively, it's hard to imagine Harrison playing anywhere besides first base.
ESPN's Keith Law ranked the Californian native 37th overall, and writes "At the plate, Harrison squares up a ton of balls with good hand-eye coordination and plenty of torque from how he rotates his hips. He's got good balance, staying upright through contact, and shows raw power already with the potential for a little more."
Along with Harrison, the Twins also inked 30th overall pick Levi Michael and 55th overall pick Hudson Boyd.
