Picks by Overall #

Worst case scenario he becomes a high-leverage reliever because from the left-side is very valuable. The second Arizona Wildcat commit to make this mock draft posses the most raw power in the draft, reaching 70 raw. Gorman has a plus arm and is an average runner, however some fear that he might slow down causing him to move over to first base. There has been some swing and miss issues that have come up with Gorman but with the power, he posses he can work through some holes in his swing.

The Ole Miss Rebel has been one of the safer pitchers in this draft class, thanks to a fastball-slider mix and a durable athletic frame. Seattle likes to go the college route early and Rolison with his fastball, plus slider, and above changeup has mid-rotation upside. One of the many Florida Gator commits may be one of the most tooled up players in this draft. He has added more power to his smooth left-handed swing and has maintained the speed that has made him an intriguing prospect.

He should stick in center as he has displayed good instincts and has plus-plus speed with an above average arm. When you first see Kumar Rocker you will not believe how well built he is, but then you find out his dad was an NFL defensive lineman and it makes sense. With the thick and durable frame, he could eat innings right now.

When the stuff catches up to frame this could be an intriguing guy in a couple of years. Jordyn Adams is an grade runner and poses impressive raw power. In this scenario, he takes the baseball money and turns down being a highly regarded four-star wide receiver and showing up at the University of North Carolina. Ryan Weathers has had a late start to his spring because of good playoff basketball run. I like his delivery and I think he can add some more weight to his frame and watch the velocity take a tick up.

Another college pitcher from the state of Florida, Logan Gilbert is viewed by some as one of the safest pitchers in this draft. He repeats his delivery well and has above-average command.

He might not reach the heights of fellow Stetson alumni in Corey Kluber or Jacob deGrom, but Gilbert will carve out a good career as a mid-rotation starter for a long time. One of the more athletic pitchers in this draft, Mason Denaburg is smooth on the mound and smooth behind the dish. His fastball has been up to 97 this spring and has a plus or better slider that is nasty with bite, and a below average changeup.

He has had some elbow soreness this spring, but the talent is undeniable and he could be a steal at this point in the draft. We should all get used to Oregon State Beavers going in the first round because that program has built something special.

Trevor Larnach is a prototypical corner outfield profile, plus arm, plus raw power, and an above-average hit tool. Before this year the tools were there for him to be good, but he unlocked more power, in turn, causing him to rise up draft boards. Larnach profiles better in right field where his arm is an asset. Colorado has invested recently in high schoolers with an advanced feel for hitting and power projection and Groshans fits that mold. The Magnolia prep product combines a plus hit tool with future raw power and above average speed.

In the draft, the Yankees drafted Beck in the 28th round. Fast forward a year they grab the Stanford Cardinal in the first round. His above-average command allows him to spot his pitches in and out of the zone. While he has had some injuries in the past, nothing has been arm related. The left-handed pitcher he is facing Jason Vargas is also one of the worst pitchers in baseball and this season he is allowing right-handed hitters to slash. Story is going to be chalky tonight but for good reason, as he takes on a bad left-handed pitcher at home.

For his career Story has an OPS of 1. Those numbers this season are an OPS of 1. The lefty he is facing Derek Holland once again like I talked about earlier is also a bad pitcher. Story is truly a fade at your own risk player tonight. Best of luck in your contests today!

Manning the Mound SP to Target: Ross Stripling , LAD In his past two starts, Stripling threw at least 95 pitches and in those starts, he allowed one earned run while striking out 19 in OF, Nelson Cruz , SEA The numbers are not what we are used to seeing from Cruz yet this season especially against lefties but even in a down year, Cruz has been really good against them.
