Update: Howard A. Kusnick PA v. Kellin Deglan

The Texas Rangers selected Kellin Deglan with the #22 overall pick in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft.  The 6’2 catcher was one of the more intriguing players on the Canadian high school baseball circuit, who was seen as pretty raw, but had quite a bit of potential, especially with a powerful bat.  The fact that […]
