Most of our writers didn't enter the world sporting an @baseballprospectus.com address; with a few exceptions, they started out somewhere else. In an effort to up your reading pleasure while tipping our caps to some of the most illuminating work being done elsewhere on the internet, we'll be yielding the stage once a week to the best and brightest baseball writers, researchers, and thinkers from outside of the BP umbrella. If you'd like to nominate a guest contributor (including yourself), please drop us a line.

Kevin Whitaker never met a school assignment he couldn’t turn into something baseball-related. His research on the MLB Draft was published at the 2013 Sloan Sports Analytics Conference and adapted into the article below, and he writes about college basketball at Beanpot Hoops.

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.
