WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Karas has a commitment to play baseball at Cal. He hit .380 with four homers and seven stolen bases in his sophomore year in high school, then followed that up with a .340 average, two homers, and ten stolen bases as a junior.  I couldn’t find his stats as a senior.  Cal’s recruiting coordinator Mike Neu said he has the power and offensive ability to eventually hit in the middle of the order for Cal, while playing third base.  His arm is strong enough that Cal is considering him for opportunities on the mound as a solid pitcher with a power arm.  He’ll probably be a tough guy to sign at this point in the draft.
