The Atlanta Braves Select…Brett Cumberland

With the 76th pick in the 2106 MLB Draft, the Atlanta Brave selected, Brett Cumberland, a switch hitting catcher out of the University of California-Berkeley.

 

Cumberland is more noted for his hitting then his defense. This past season, Cumberland hit for an impressive .412 average to go along with 17 RBIs and 6 HRs (stats according to calbears.com). Based off his offensive ability, Cumberland projects more as 1B at the big league level, but nonetheless this is a great pick by the Braves to get a top-level college bat.
