MLB Mock Draft 2021 (5/20/21)

Mock Draft Quick bites (5/20/21)


1.

It’s between Marcelo Mayer & Henry Davis. Who takes the underslot?

The Bucs really want to fill that hole at C and I see lots of similar hitting traits between Henry Davis and last years 1st round pick Nick Gonzalez.

 

Pick: Henry Davis


2.

    This pick could be the face of the franchise for years to come….is it Jordan Lawlar or Jack Leiter or Marcelo Mayer? I’m really tempted to take Joe Mack here.

 

 Pick: Jack Leiter 


3.

Kumar Rocker or Marcelo Mayer?  I value Mayer’s left-handed bat here though I believe he shifts over to 3B.

 

Pick: Marcelo Mayer


4.

    I’m still trying to figure out last year’s pick.  I prefer Joe Mack or Kahlil Watson here.

 

Pick: Jordan Lawlar


5.

  Sal Frelick and Colton Cowser will be in play as the Birds will always explore an underslot. Despite the internet buzz, Brady House doesn’t fit here. Sal Frelick or Kahlil Watson

 

 Pick: Sal Frelick 


6.

The 3B draft class is deep, so I pass on Brady House here.

 

Pick: Jackson Jobe


7.

         Again, same as above – deep 3B class, so I pass on House and focus on Kahlil Watson, Colton Cowser and Joe Mack.

 

Pick: Joe Mack


8.

        Bill Schmidt 1st tough decision as GM – Kumar Rocker, Kahlil Watson, Brady House or Colton Cowser/ Jud Fabian. Does Jordan Lawlar slip?

 

Pick: Kahlil Watson 


9.

     Kumar Rocker or Jordan Lawlar fall in the Halos lap in this scenario. Rocker’s best bet early would be Det or Bos.

 

Pick: Kumar Rocker


10.

  Colton Cowser makes sense here, and Matt McLain will be a  fallback option. I’m tempted to Mock Chase Petty here, I think he ends up in Gain$ville.

 

Pick: Colton Cowser


11.

      Henry Davis or Joe Mack would be my preferences here if available.

 

Pick: Brady House


12

  Jordan Wicks or Matt McLain?

 

Pick: Matt McLain 


13.

   Philly gets a steal here, I’d consider Fabian at pick #8.

 

Pick: Jud Fabian


14.

Could see SF going after Gunnar Hoglund here w/ an underslot deal. Bubba Chandler could be option here full slot.

 

 Pick: Sam Bachman


15.

     Ryan Cusick or Ty Madden

 

 Pick: Ty Madden


16.

    I’ve leaned towards Adrian Del Castillo staying local but ultimately…..

 

Pick: Harry Ford 


17.

      The Red leggings have multiple early picks and can pull this off.

 

Pick: Bubba Chandler 


18.

       Michael McGeevy or Ryan Cusick or Gunnar Hoglund. Max Muncy/Benny Montgomery could be a sleepers here.

 

Pick: Ryan Cusick


19.

      The Jays typically go college. Michael McGreevy or Adrian Del Castillo. Fabian if available. HS sleepers Max Muncy or Benny Montgomery or Tyler Whitaker.

 

 Pick: Adrian Del Castillo


20.

  If NYY keeps this pick, Chase Petty or Anthony Solomento could be in play. Jordan Wicks if they go the safe route.

 

Pick: Michael McGreevy


20.

      The Cubs want projectable bats or arms.  Michael McGreevy, Andrew Painter, Ben Kurdna or Benny Montgomery.

 

 If Pick at #20:  Michael McGreevy

If Pick at #21: Andrew Painter


21.

     Jordan Wicks, Adrian Del Castillo or Gunnar Hoglund.

 

Pick: Jordan Wicks


22.

         Comes down to Michael McGreevy, Ben Kudrna, Thatcher Hurd. Game plan could be underslot here, overslot next pick.

 

Pick: Ben Kudrna


23.

          Andrew Painter, Ben Kudrna & Max Muncy will be overslot. Gavin Williams or Alex Mooney or Thatcher Hurd take slot or less.

 

Pick:  Gavin Williams 


24.

     The A’s went overslot last year for Tyler Soderstorm. Wes Kath underslot this year? The wildcard here is Tyler Whitaker as we know the A’s GM has been in Vegas.

 

Pick: Maxwell Muncy 


25.

     The Twins have the luxury of a Comp A pick, so they can reach here and get someone they like (underslot) that might not get to them with their 2nd pick.

 

Pick: Ky Bush


26.

        The Friars budget is tighter here than most years and may limit what they can do here  ( Unless they plan on blowing past slot value with the CBA expiring)

Pitchers – Gunnar Hoglund, Will Bednar, Ky Bush or prep arms Thatcher Hurd, Gage Jump, Josh Hartle.

Position Player – toolsy outfielder Ty Whitaker or basketball star Colson Montgomery

 

Pick: Gunnar Hoglund


27.

    Seems like the Rays always have extra picks.

 

Pick:  Carson Williams


28.

     I’m thinking lefty’s start going off the board here…Solomento/Jump/Ky Bush/Mozzicato/Hartle

 

Pick: Anthony Solomento


29.

 

Pick: Gage Jump or Frank Mozzicato


30.

       **if NY selects at #20 Michael McGreevy 

 

 Pick:  Gage Jump or Frank Mozzicato


31.

 

Pick: Jaden Hill


32.

 

Pick:  Will Bednar


33.

   Schrier is trending towards UCLA, as is Nick McLain, Strong Bruins commitments.

 

Pick: Izaac Pacheco


34.

Pick: Christian Franklin


35.

 

 Pick: Tommy Mace


36.

 

Pick: Ethan Wilson / Peyton Stovall / Tyler Whitaker


37.

     The Bucs go overslot here. Josh Hartle?

 

      Pick: Lonnie White Jr

 


38.

 

 Pick:  Ryan Holgate


39.

 

Pick: Matt Milkulski


40.

  UVA typically gets players on campus, so I expect Benny Montgomery to land on campus.

 

Pick:  Benny Montgomery / Frank Mozzicato / Thatcher Hurd


41.

 

Pick: Jackson Baumeister / Gage Jump


42.

 

 Pick: Alex Mooney


43.

 

Pick:  Trey Sweeney – Colson Mongotmery


44.

 

 Pick: Braden or Colson Montgomery


45.

       Kumar Rocker would be an overslot pay

 

 Pick: Luca Tresh or Thatcher Hurd


46.

The Preference would be LH Arms, from Ky Bush to Maddux Bruns to Andrew Abbott

 

Pick:  Thatcher Hurd or Maddux Bruns


47.

 

Pick: Max Ferguson


48,

Perhaps a similar deal as Kyle Harrison gets  Josh Hartle.

 

 Pick: Josh Hartle or Joe Rock


49.

 

Pick: Steve Hajjar


50.

 

 Pick: Peyton Stovall
