Get to know Oregon State baseball’s star catcher Adley Rutschman

Meet Adley Rutschman, Oregon State’s star catcher who could soon be the future of Major League Baseball. The junior is coming off National College Baseball Writers Association National Player of the Month honors and could become the first pick in MLB’s first-year draft in June.

The 6-foot-2, 216 pound physical, switch-hitting backstop hit .455 over 18 games in April and recorded five doubles, seven home runs, and 23 runs batted last month. This season, he’s hitting .429 with 16 home runs and 53 RBI. Rutschman holds the OSU single-season record with 59 walks and leads the nation with a .579 on-base percentage.

So, what say we about his future?
