2016 Draft Pick Series: Travis Eckert

Travis Eckert was selected by the Royals in the 7th round (223rd overall) of Friday’s 2016 MLB June Amateur Draft. A 6-2 right handed pitcher, Eckert comes to the Royals via Oregon State, where he was the Beavers #1 starter during his senior campaign (6-4, 3.28 ERA). Travis was also drafted in 2015 by the San Francisco Giants (20th round) but elected to return for his senior season at Oregon State. He recently joined Dave O to talk about being drafted twice, why he returned to school, his surprise and excitement in the Royals being the team that selected him and lots more!
