Sosnick Cobbe Karon Monopolizes Day 1 Of 2016 MLB Draft

If you are a baseball agent, then please feel free to send us updates of your successes throughout the 2016 MLB Draft.

Matt Sosnick is no novice in the business of representing baseball players. We interviewed him years ago, when one of his biggest clients was pitcher Dontrelle Willis.

There is a great book that was written about Sosnick’s trials and tribulations, which I highly recommend.

Sosnick Cobbe Karon has many players that he is advising in the 2016 MLB Draft. The following advisees were selected throughout the first and second rounds.

Round 1: Zac Burdi- P- White Sox (Louisville); Will Smith- C- Dodgers (Louisville); Daulton Jeffries- P- A’s (Cal)

Round 2: Lucas Erceg- 3B- Brewers- (Menlo College); Nick Solak- 2B- Yankees- (Louisville); Pete Alonso- 1B- Mets- (U of Miami); Mitchell White- P- Dodgers (Santa Clara); AJ Puckett- P- Royals- (Pepperdine); Matthias Dietz- P-Orioles- (John Logan CC)

Expect to see many more Sosnick Cobbe Karon advisees selected in the third and fourth rounds.
