George Bissell, Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre of Baseball Prospectus discuss the importance of drafting an ace-caliber starting pitcher (3:00), Clayton Kershaw’s status as an undisputed first-round selection (6:45), if there are any reasons for concern regarding Max Scherzer (10:30), why Yu Darvish is still an ace (12:00), if Carlos Carrasco or Stephen Strasburg can stay healthy (16:00), the Cubs “big three” in Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester and Kyle Hendricks (21:30), the legitimacy of Justin Verlander’s mid-career renaissance (26:00), realistic expectations for Chris Archer, Cole Hamels, Gerrit Cole, Jacob deGrom and Rich Hill (28:00), a pair of starters in Danny Duffy and Felix Hernandez trending in opposite directions (36:00), breakout potential for southpaws Sean Manaea, James Paxton and Carlos Rodon (42:00), a massive three-star tier lighting round (50:00), and finally reveal their late-round targets in Robert Gsellman, Daniel Norris, Jordan Zimmerman, Zach Davies, Ivan Nova, Jon Gray, Jharel Cotton, Francisco Liriano and Garrett Richards (56:30).
