MLB Draft Results: Braves Select CF Justin Black

The first four rounds of the 2012 MLB Draft are nearly at an end. With their fourth pick in the draft on Tuesday, the Atlanta Braves selected a high school prospect whom they are hoping will eventually become a major league outfielder.

With the No. 149 pick, the Braves selected center fielder Justin Black, who currently plays with Billings West High School in Montana. Black stands at 6'0 and weighs 190 pounds. He bats right and throws right.

ESPN pegs Black as a four-star prospect and listed him at No. 100 on their ESPN 100. ESPN claims Black is the second-best baseball prospect in Montana.
