Houston Astros Draft Seth Beer 28th Overall

With the 28th pick in the first round of the MLB Draft, the Houston Astros selected Seth Beer, 1B, Clemson.

Beer burst onto the scene as a Freshman, instantly putting him into really early consideration for the 2018 1st overall pick.

As a Freshman, Beer batted .369/.535/.700 with 75 H, 13 2B, 18 HR, 70 RBI, 62 BB and just 27 K in 203 ABs.

He followed up his breakout campaign with fairly good, but not otherworldly numbers like his Freshman year, batting .298/.478/.606 with 65 H, 17 2B, 16 HR, 53 RBI, 64 BB, and 35 K in 218 AB.

This season he’s again become a dominant force for Clemson, setting a career high in HRs with 22 while batting .317/.471/.656 with 66 H, 11 2B, 54 RBI, 52 BB and 31 K in 209 AB.

Beer has a very powerful left-handed swing and has impeccable plate discipline, drawing 180 walks and striking out only 98 times in 188 career games. As good as the bat is, Beer saw his stock fall from his Freshman year due to questions surrounding his defensive home in the future. A corner OF or 1B spot seems likely, though with an AL team to call home, he could see a lot of time as a DH and have his bat be the main attraction.

All in all, the Astros got one of the best hitters in draft and one of my favorite players to watch in College Baseball. He will be an interesting name to follow in the Astros’ Minor League system and one that could light up scoreboards whenever he steps into the batter’s box. Congratulations to Seth Beer on being drafted by the Houston Astros!
