Draft Ten Pack: Whom Would You Draft?

23

Nick J. Faleris

It's a very special episode of the Draft Ten Pack, featuring a BP mock draft.

We’re a month from the MLB First Year Player Draft (June 5–7), and it’s time to narrow our focus to those names who will play a prominent role on draft day. This week’s entry in the Draft Ten Pack put ten BP and Perfect Game prospect-team members in decision-making roles. The rules of this “mock” were simple: pick the player you would pick if you were calling the shots for your assigned team. These selections were not made with organizational preference in mind, or with a nod toward any real-world hints about which targets these organizations have begun to zero in on.

The Call-Up: Marcus Stroman

8

Nick J. Faleris and Ben Carsley

The Blue Jays bring up their top starting pitching prospect, though it's not clear how soon he'll be starting.

The Situation: With injuries and ineffectiveness dragging the Toronto pen through a month of underperformance, the Jays look to Marcus Stroman (the top prospect in the system entering 2014) to help hold down the late innings.

Background: Stroman was a first round selection out of Duke University in 2012, coming off the board with the 22nd overall pick. Despite one of the loudest arsenals in the draft class, consisting of three potential plus-plus offerings (fastball, slider, and cutter) and an average to plus changeup, Stroman’s diminutive stature (listed at 5-foot-9) and dominant stint as closer for the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team led many evaluators to place the Friday night ace into the “bullpen bin.” The Blue Jays saw a starter and, after easing his arm into the pro game via the pen in late 2012, inserted Stroman into the Double-A rotation for 20 starts in 2013.
