2014 Indians 36th round pick: SS Max Bartlett
With their 36th round pick in the 2014 Draft the Cleveland Indians have selected shortstop Max Bartlett out of Gulf Coast Community College (FL).
Born: 1/14/1995 – Height: 5’11” – Weight: 165 – Bats: Right – Throws: Right
Jeff Ellis: Max Bartlett is a shortstop from Gulf Coast State College, its a JUCO which is why he was draft eligible after his freshman year. His dad is a head scout for the Indians which makes it three of the last four picks with major league blood lines. He is another sub six foot guy at 5’11” and hits from the left side. He .289 on the year with no home runs and seven steals. I have to assume if they are taking him after his freshman year he will sign though I am not sure about what to expect. Last year he was the 16th rated shortstop in the state of Mississippi, which isn’t typically a hot bed. I assume he will be a depth guy for the Indians if signed.
