MLB Draft 2012: Rangers Select CF Jamie Jarmon From Delaware In Second Round

The second round of the 2012 MLB Draft is underway on Tuesday. The Texas Rangers used their No. 83 overall pick to select center fielder Jamie Jarmon. Jarmon is a 6'1, 193-pound right-handed player out of Indian River High School in Delaware.

Jarmon won the Delaware Player of the Year award for his work on the football field but projects as a future major league baseball player. He's a speedy outfielder with a terrific arm and a fast bat. He will need plenty of work to be ready for the majors, which is likely why the Rangers are hoping they will be able to sign him out of high school.
