2021 7th round pick (197): Connor Pavolony - C - (Junior) Tennessee

Recommended Posts

Pavolony played much of the season with a hairline fracture in his hand. He hit better with the injury, mostly against SEC competition. Some big game performances. He had a good offensive line going in 2020 before COVID and they played very good competition early. Connor was the 91st ranked HS player in the country, according to Perfect Game, out of Woodstock, Ga.. He was a 2nd team College pre-season All-American according to D1 Baseball. 

I watched some video on him. His pop times are consistently around 1.8. Quick hands and feet. He is about a 7.0 60 yard runner, which is not bad at all for a catcher. He could play corner INF or OF with that. The swing is smooth with some loft. No longer collapses the back side. He can get more from his lower half. 

I like this pick very much for a 7th rounder. I think he’ll hit fairly well for a catcher, not just a defense guy.
