For the third straight pick, the Braves took a prospect with baseball bloodlines Friday, selecting third baseman Dylan Manwaring in the ninth round, the 283rd overall selection of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft.
Manwaring, a Wake Forest commitment since he was a sophomore in high school, is the son of former Major League catcher Kirt Manwaring, who played 13 seasons with the Giants, Astros and Rockies between 1987-99.
"He can hit," Braves scouting director Tony DeMacio said "He's got power."
