Calvert Hall baseball player Troy Stokes, Jr., who graduated from the Towson school last weekend, was selected in the 4th round of the 2014 Major League Draft, Friday afternoon, by the Milwaukee Brewers.
Stokes, a speedy center-fielder, was key member of two Calvert Hall championship teams and helped the Cardinals return to the league finals in 2014 for the 10th consecutive year.
According to the scouting report on the MLB draft site, Stokes “lacks any real weakness in his game with all of his tools having a chance to be average or better.”
Stokes is said to have “solid range” in centerfield and is projected to be good base stealer on the professional level because of his exceptional speed.
“At the plate, he has shown a very advanced approach along with great discipline and many feel that he has a chance to be an above-average hitter in the future,” concluded MLB. “He has also shown more power and harder contact lately, but at this point, it is more double power than home run pop.”
Milwaukee used the 116th overall selection to draft Stokes.
