MLB Draft 2012: Rangers Select C Patrick Cantwell In Third Round

The 2012 MLB Draft rolls right along on Tuesday. The first three rounds are in the books as the selections are flying with barely a pause in between.The Texas Rangers have made their third-round selection, electing to pick up yet another position player.

With their third-round pick and the No. 123 overall selection, the Rangers chose Patrick Cantwell. Cantwell is a 6'2, 205 pound catcher out of SUNY Stony Brook, New York. The senior catcher bats right and throws right. This prospect may very well turn into one of the everyday backstops for the Rangers in a few years.
