Could Sam Bachman be the most recent first round pick to jump straight to the MLB?

 On Sunday night, pitcher Sam Bachman will likely be the first ever Miami RedHawk to be taken in the first round of the Major League Baseball Draft. One of Bachman’s most exciting traits is his apparent MLB readiness. Draft insider Joe Doyle speculated that he could end up in an MLB bullpen later in 2021, saying “If there’s stuff that’ll play immediately out of a big league bullpen, it’s Bachman’s.” Major League teams always need bullpen help. Who better to provide it than a young player with strikeout stuff?
