Cole is the SS for the University of Florida, and he's the son of former big league infielder, Bien Figueroa. Cole is a draft-eligible sophomore, so he still has two years of eligibility left in school. Hopefully we can convince him to start his pro career, as he is a solid left-handed hitting middle infielder who has terrific instincts for the game. He's another player who seemed to raise his game when it counted the most. At the plate he is a handsy hitter who will hit the ball where it's pitched but also has the ability to hit the ball out of the ballpark. Cole hit .350 this year with a .422 obp and a .534 slg to go along with 20 stolen bases.
If I have the time tonight, I will try to provide a brief wrap-up of what was a very exciting day for us. We couldn't be happier about the group of players we selected today, as we managed to get a number of our targeted offensive players.
