MLB Draft 2011 Review: Video Of Final Day Royals Selections

As we brought to you yesterday, we have linked any available videos of picks made today. Go ahead and click on the players name for video-

Chris Serritella 1B Southern Illinois University

Tyler Chism CF Gonzaga

Matthew Beaty C Desden HS (TN)

Adrian Morales 3B South Carolina

Kash Kalkowski  3B Nebraska

It's interesting that Serritella missed the entire 2011 season due to a broken bone in his wrist, however he was first-team All-Missouri Valley Conference as he batted .374 with 13 home runs for the Salukis. Kansas City must have thought highly of him to draft a player who missed this past season.

Kash Kalkowski of Nebraska has a similar story in that because of injuries, he had only played in two games at Nebraska before this season, in the field. He actually was a pitcher for the Huskers his freshman season, before missing 2010 because of shoulder surgery. This season he came back to bat .299 for Nebraska while collecting 5 home runs and 42 RBI. He will likely be a hard sign as he is just a sophomore, but the fact he is already 22 years old gives me some hope Kansas City might be able to sign him.
