Part of the fun during the third day of Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft is keeping an eye out for familiar last names -- sons of either former players or personnel.
If you checked out the 30th round, you'd see Kyle Wren, a sophomore OF from Georgia Tech, was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds. If Braves fans out there were wondering if there's any relation to Frank Wren, the general manager of the Atlanta Braves, well, wonder no more:
#Braves GM Frank Wren said he is "happy and proud of Kyle" who was drafted by Reds in 30th round. Kyle Wren is only a sophomore at Ga Tech— David O'Brien (@ajcbraves) June 6, 2012
Since Kyle is only a sophomore, he does have some leverage in contract talks, and can return to school to try to bolster his draft stock during his junior season.
As a sophomore at Georgia Tech, Wren hit .256/.346/.364, and added two home runs while stealing 16 bases.
