Mock Draft Quick bites (5/12/21)


1.

Jack Leiter   – Sticking with Leiter

Priester and Leiter could debut around the same time and front the Bucs rotation. Targeting a catcher with pick #37 or #64 ( (Luca Tresh, Matheu Nelson)

Underslot candidates: Marcelo Mayer/Hendry Davis.

Longshot but if the Bucs can underslot Mayer and float Joe Mack to #37, followed by by projectable arms Pirate Nation should raise the Jolly Roger Flag in victory. 


2.

    Jordan Lawlar – the hometown hero gives the Fort Worth team a discount. The Rangers go overlsot w/ pick #38


3.

Kumar Rocker – Motown loves them big, fast and strong.  Muncy or Mooney with next pick?

Is a draft package of Kumar Rocker & Max Muncy or Alex Mooney better than a Marcelo Mayer &  Will Bednar or a projectable HS arm at #32? How much will they value Mayer’s left-handed bat?


4.

    Marcelo Mayer – Mayer checked all the boxes for Boston’s VP of scouting early in the season


5.

Kahlil Watson – 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.


6.

Henry Davis Jackson Jobe  UPDATED 4/25/21 with Carson Kelley emerging I’m flipping to Jackson Jobe. 

Zac Gallen, Blake Waltson & Jackson Jobe to headline a future rotation. The Dbacks can find 3b later in the draft. Kath, Sweeney, Binelas, Pacheco etc 


7.

         Sal Frelick or Colton Cowser – Frelick reminds me  too much of TJ Friedl, Kyle Isbel could fill that role.

Cowser has upside but very much still a PD project. Same as above, could find 3B later in draft.

My preference here would be Joe Mack or Henry Davis


8.

        Jud Fabian – the pundits will point to the strikeouts but I see an easy fix.

Colton Coswer is option


9.

     Gunnar Hoglund –  This is where the draft really starts….The Halos have gone upside in the past so Bubba Chandler makes lots of sense.

Henry Davis or Joe Mack would fill a void at C.

Ty Madden /Sam Bachman / Jackson Jobe  could be options as well. Chase Petty?


10.

  The Mets adore left-handed bats. Colton Cowser / Watson /Madden

  Jobe and Petty are high-end arms the Mets would usually target with their 2nd pick – would they reverse course and go arm at #10 and bat at #46. Say Petty at #10 and Ryan Holgate or Peyton Stovall at #46?

McLain would be a fallback option if the top targets are gone.


11.

       Brady House – not my preference but may be best fit. Henry Davis or Joe Mack would be my preferences here.


12

  Jordan Wicks or Matt McLain – who takes an underslot deal here?


13.

  Ty Madden /Sam Bachman– Mocked Joe Mack here back in the fall. Sal Frelick landing spot?


14.

Jackson Jobe Could see SF going after Gunnar Hoglund here w/ an underslot deal.

Bubba Chandler could be option here full slot.

Sam Bachman or Ty Madden.


15.

    Ryan Cusick here and Brew Crew Area Code alum Cody Schrier at #33


16.

    Izaac PachecoAdrian Del Castillo stays local.


17.

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


18.

       Matt McLain  or Sal Frelick

College Arms: Michael McGreevy / Gunnar Hoglund / Gavin Williams

Surprises: Chase Petty or Benny Montgomery


19.

      Fabian / Cowser / Christian Franklin / Benny Montgomery /Adrian Del Castillo  – Sal Frelick


20.

      Benny Montgomery or Andrew Painter / Michael McGreevy


21.

      Gunnar Hoglund


22.

          Chase Petty 


23.

          Gavin Williams


24.

     Max Muncy


25.

     Jordan Wicks


26.

       Will Bednar / Chase Burns / Ben Kudrna /Hurd /Painter


27.

    Carson Williams  –the value of the position (SS) plus the arm. Could be in play with the Twinkies or A’s.


28.

     Anthony Solomento


29.

     Frank Mozzicato


30.

        Gage Jump –   **if NY selects at #20 McGreevy 


31.

    Harry Ford – overslot


32.

Max Muncy – consolation prize if miss out on Mayer/Lawlar. Boras Corp price tag. Over$lot $$$ or school.

Alex Mooney or Max Muncy / if they select Mayer or Lawler at #3 then go will Bednar or projectable HS arm


33.

    Cody Schrier


34.

  Ryan Holgate


35.

     Christian Franklin


36.

    Ethan Wilson
