1st/2nd/4th/6th/8th picks in the upcoming prospect draft.....We pull from the MLB draft last year.....
Looking for a top 10 list...who should i be targeting...
is it only from the mlb draft last year? If not here are the top players from the draft who you should target. Stephen Strasburg Dustin Ackley Tyler Matzek Jacob Turner Donovan Tate Grant Green Tanner Scheepers Aaron Crow Shelby Miller Bobby Borchering
College Tuition: $12,000
Room & Board: $5,600
Food Plan: $2000
Not going to college and living with your parents: Priceless
2009 International signings don't count? Because Sano & Chapman would be high on the list.
I think you could say the same thing, maybe even worse about Scheppers delivery and injury history. Either way, both are a lot closer to the majors than most of the HS pitchers and have more upside than the college pitchers not names Strasburg.
My top 10 (There's about 8 more guys that I really close I can see mixing into the bottom of the list) 1.Stephen Strasburg 2.Dustin Ackley (I dislike Strasburg more than most and am high on Ackley so this gap isn't as big for me.) 3.Jacob Turner 4.Tyler Matzek 5.Donovan Tate 6.Mike Trout 7.Wil Myers 8.Bobby Borchering 9.Tanner Scheppers 10.Aaron Crow
Chapman's a real tough one. Probably somewhere between 3 and 5? Yeah, he throws 100, but guys from Cuba just don't get much exposure to good hitters or much view from the scouts. His ceiling is enormous, but who knows how far he is from it.
Don't forget Miguel Angel Sano either. I'd probably put him 5.
Trout had a very nice debut (less than 200 at bats but the scouting reports were very positive too). His bat was a lot more polished than scouts expected from a cold weather high schooler. Has the speed and defense to be a future CF/lead-off hitter. His BB & K rates were very impressive for a high schooler. His makeup and effort are off the charts. The main question is how much power he'll eventually develop.
