From the Field: Kevin Newman, SS, Pittsburgh Pirates

Kevin Newman wasd drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1st round (19th overall) of the 2015 Draft from University of Arizona.

He is having a great 2016. Between A and AA he is hitting .339/.403/.450 with 4 HR. He also has a great BB:K ration at 35:32.

He did not have eye-popping numbers in 2015, but scouts were high on his hitting ability. He has proved them right, and he looks like the Pirates shortstop of the future.

On top of being a good player, he is also really cool. AA guys can be a little cranky sometimes since they are getting hit up for autographs pretty consistently…but he was very friendly. It was a nice surprise.
