Marlins Select RHP Bryan Berglund with 2nd-Round Pick


              After going with prep left-hander Chad James with their first-round pick in the draft, the Marlins went with a high-school right-hander, Bryan Berglund, with their second-round selection.

              Here's video of Berglund in action.

                                                                                                                                                                                       Here's what Baseball America has to say about Berglund, who is out of Royal High School in Simi Valley, Calif.: Berglund

               "Berglund was little known until a local all-star game last December when he enjoyed a breakout performance and rocketed up draft boards....Berglund is a Swedish citizen who has picked up the American national pastime....His fastball sits in the 90-92 mph range, and his secondary pitches are well-developed for a prep pitcher. His slider has the makings of a plus pitch, but his best current offering is his changeup, which shows both deception and late drop."
