Nationals Tab Georgia Tech Catcher Cole Leonida In Sixth round

In the first round, the Nationals selected Bryce Harper, a catcher they plan on moving to right field. In the fifth round, they chose Georgia Tech’s Cole Leonida, a catcher who will most likely stay behind the dish.

In 62 games for the Yellow Jackets this season, Leonida has hit .296 with 11 home runs and 56 rbi.
