Draft Ten Pack

Whom Would You Draft, Part 3

by Nick J. Faleris and BP Prospect Staff


We conclude our “Whom Would You Draft?” exercise with the final 21 picks of the first and supplemental rounds. You can catch up on the first 20 selections by reviewing Part 1 and Part 2 of the series.

As was the case the last two weeks, some representatives from our partners over at Perfect Game USA (Patrick Ebert, David Rawnsley, and Todd Gold) contributed to this week’s entry. You can find more of their excellent MLB Draft work here. Also make sure to check out the free Draft Video Library, which currently houses 200-plus videos of draft prospects.

Monte Harrison is from Kansas City, not St. Louis, so not a "local kid" for the Cardinals.

Which state are those cities in?

Missouri is not a small state, and Kansas City and St. Louis, being on opposite sides of it, are far apart. Examples of cities in other states that are closer to Kansas City than St. Louis is include Des Moines, Omaha, and Wichita, and Indianapolis is closer to St. Louis than Kansas City is.

Michael Gettys at 35th pick? Isn't that kind of late? Surely there is a team higher that is willing to take a risk on a player with so many tools.

The hit tool is a real question mark. Like "Will he make it out of Double A" question mark. It's definitely possible someone pops him earlier -- particularly if their dev staff has a good idea as to what can be done to clean things up. But pitch ID was almost nonexistent at NHSI and he was regularly swinging through low- to mid-80s fastballs in the zone. I think the supp-1st makes a lot of sense as a landing spot and honestly wouldn't blame teams if he slipped well into the second round.

How similar is Sean-Reid Foley to Chi-Chi Gonzalez? Their reports read almost identically, other than Foley being a HS guy.

If Turner is somehow there for the Pirates you may get to see Neal Huntington dancing in the streets.
