The Padres got great value in the 26th round by picking high school outfielder Cory Hahn.
An undersized guy, Hahn, 18, has surprising pop, solid speed, a good arm, and tremendous instincts that make everything in his game play up.
Since he slid very far in the draft, Hahn likely is going to need quite a bit of money to sign, but he is a California kid, so the Padres might have a bit of an edge there over most teams.
Hahn has great bat speed and has some room to fill out and develop more power.
Ultimately, I can see him becoming a smaller, left-handed version of Eric Byrnes if everything breaks right. If the Padres can sign Hahn, that’s tremendous value this late in the draft.
