Coffmann the second of two outfielders selected

DETROIT -- After the Tigers selected eight pitchers with their first nine picks, they wrapped up Day 2 of the First-Year Player Draft with 6-foot-3 center fielder Kasey Coffman on Friday. The junior showed a mix of power and speed at Arizona State this season with eight home runs and a team-high nine stolen bases.

The left-handed hitter completed his season with a team-best .430 on-base percentage, while finishing second on the squad with a .332 batting average and a .534 slugging percentage.

Coffman hit .337 with six home runs and 44 RBIs last summer in the New England Collegiate Baseball League with the Newport Gulls in 42 games.
