We established earlier that the 4th spot sucks, it looks like the 11th spot does too. If you're feeling lucky several guys make sense here - Tulo, Bautista and Hamilton all have the upside for a late first round pick. But each comes with an assortment of risks. If you're feeling safer I think you go with the solid batting average and 40 dingers of Stanton. His lineup sucks and he doesn't steal. Upton is an intriguing pick at this point if you think joining his brother in the ATL will inspire a great season. And it might.
I think I would go Stanton, he has the highest downside, and it's not like doesn't have upside. .280+ with 45 HR isn't out of the question.
Meh. He's likely a .270 hitter who doesn't steal in a terrible line-up. I really don't think his power makes up for all that with some of the other guys available. Plus he's already dealt with injuries. I honestly don't think I'd take him until the 3rd round.
