Not all scouts were on Fukofuka, and rival teams believe the Royals will save some money with this pick, which makes sense after selecting Indiana State lefthander Sean Manaea in the second round. Scouts who are on Fukofuka like his athleticism. He can dunk a basketball and was a standout wide receiver on Logan's football team, as well. He is an average runner, but is very raw and has a long way to go with the bat. He does have some looseness to his swing, but needs more strength and could spend two years at the Rookie-level. Fukofuka was committed to Chabot (Calif.) JC, but is expected to sign for a discount.
