Nate Pearson
2:32
Reds take Mac Sceroler, 91-93, fringe curve, chance for above avg changeup.

^Padres just took Homza, good frame, 2B for me, chance to hit enough to play there. Nice pick.
Noah

When you talk about picking the best player available how do you weigh the difference between a volatile high upside player and a safer player with lower ceiling and high floor with the same FV?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:34
That's where more gut//subjectivity enters the equation.
2:35
Braves took Josh Fleming from Webster. 0.67 ERA and 0.71 WHIP this year.
Not Braves, Rays

Michael Chavis has 17 home runs and is leading the Carolina league in BA. Is he a prospect again?
Eric A Longenhagen

Yes, was hurt last year and didn't tell anyone.
2:40
Phillies take Ethan Lindow. Physically projectable, stuff backed up late in the spring. Has been up to 92 with some breaking ball and changeup feel. Interetsing buy-low prospect.
Tim
2:40
Does marinan have #2 upside?
Eric A Longenhagen
2:41
That's a 5 WAR pitcher so, no.
Brewers take NJ HS 3B Nick Egnatuk.
Good body, great defensive 3B, bat needs an overhaul

Egnatuk sounds the most like a Pokemon of any prospect in this year's draft
