Dodgers take another potential C/Utility guy in Houston's COnnor Wong
#85 on my board, good bat to ball skills, runs well.
1:42
Very much like Austin Barnes, Will Smith in that he's a better athlete than typically found at C
Michael Bourn Supremacy
1:42
Thoughts on Faedo pick? Good value or betting on something which is no longer there?

A calculated risk that I thought was defensible. I had him ranked at 13.
1:43
Red Sox select Brett Netzer, 2B, UNC Charlotte
Great hitting actions, moves the barrel around, good extension through contact. Not sure the power profiles at 2B, could be a bat-first bench player if he can add defensive versatility.
1:44
Cleveland takes Jon Rodriguez, OF, Beltran Academy (PR)
1:45
Purely an age/physical projection pick
Doesn't turn 18 until the fall, huge, long levered frame, needs weight. Needs reps.
Moltar
1:45
Taking a vacation next week? You've earned it
Eric A Longenhagen
1:45
Nope, after July 2
1:46
Nick Raquet, LHP, William&Mary goes to Washington
Lefty relief prospect with arm strength.
Rangers pick Matt Whatley, C, Oral Roberts
Jose Trevino also a C from Oral Roberts
1:47
Love Whatley's glove, plus glove plus arm, high effort swing with 40 bat speed, pull-heavy approach.
#87 on my 100
1:48
Another college pitcher for the Cubbies. Keegan Thompson, RHP, Auburn
curveball/command guy right now, velo has waxed and waned throughout college career
Has a tj on the resume
Nick
1:48
Hey Eric, what are your thoughts on the Angles drafting Adell when it seems like their farm needs more help with pitching?
Eric A Longenhagen

Best Player Available, regardless of position. Always
And there are several young arms you haven't heard about yet who will be in the AZL and Short Season ball and make some noise
Minnesota picks LHP Charlie Barnes from Clemson to start 4th round
#96 on my top 100, potential plus changeup.
1:50
87-90 for me in Louisville a few weeks ago.
Reds select Cash Case, 2B, First Academy (FL)
1:51
Strong-bodied 2B with interesting power/hit combination. Has had some injury issues
gump
1:51
Have you ever tried playing OOTP? I wonder whether people with encyclopedic knowledge of prospects find games like that underwhelming
Eric A Longenhagen
1:51
Nope. MLB Showdown.
1:52
Padres select Sam Keating, RHP, Canterbury HS (FL)
1:53
89-91, might touch 93 or 94 on occasion, delivery has caused some relief concern
Chris
1:53
Would Andrew Moore make your top 100 right now? He is dealing in AAA and looks like he's ready for a shot...
Eric A Longenhagen
1:53
Might warrant consideraton but more likely the kind of guy who gets mentioned, honorably.
1:54
Rays select Drew Strotman, RHP, St. Mary's
Frame is still projectable, fastball has reached mid-90s, chance for above average slider.
John W
1:55
Where would Vlad Jr., hypothetically, have gone in this draft?
