Round 18, Pick 547
Name: Carl Stajduhar
Age: 21 (4/29/96)
HT/WT: 6’1″/ 215 lbs
Baseball America #356
New Mexico annually produces huge offensive numbers under coach Ray Birmingham, and Stajduhar has done his fair share over his three seasons, including 44 homers (17 in 2017). A Colorado prep product, Stajduhar plays third base for the Lobos but has below-average athleticism that should shift him to first as a pro. He has a long arm stroke but average arm strength. He has gotten in better shape, losing weight prior to this season, and is an excellent competitor who can hit a fastball and has present strength to hit for plus power. It’s not just to his pull side either; the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder can drive the ball to the right-center field gap. Stajduhar’s bat will have to carry him in pro ball.
Reminder of Eudor Garcia, who has disappeared since. Very interesting with pop. Probably going to play at Brooklyn.
