Hi, what are you looking for?

Mock Drafts

So we have a few mocks to go over.  The draft is on Monday so some of these should be taken with more grain of salt than others.  Most teams will be figuring out their boards this weekend and I’m sure area scouts are talking to their top players to talk numbers even thou that isn’t allowed.  It’s a common practice that MLB doesn’t care about.

  1. New York Yankees– Garrett Whitley, OF, Niskayuna HS (N.Y.)

 

Chris doesn’t like to do mocks as this is his only 2nd one.  I recommend clicking the link as he makes funny comments under each selection.

  1. Yankees

New York has been linked to upstate New York outfielder Garrett Whitley, but the Yankees’ draft successes in the Damon Oppenheimer era have come on the mound, not at the plate. Some Yankee fans will find this a conservative choice, but Ponce has real helium. He’s athletic, has a plus breaking ball and a durable 6-foot-5, 235-pound frame, plus he has a strong Cape Cod League track record. In a tough draft for college starters, Ponce fits well in the middle of the first round.

Selection: Cody Ponce, rhp, Cal Poly Pomona

 

  1. Yankees: With an extra pick, the Yankees can be aggressive with a tough sign such as Donnie Everett, the Tennessee righty who ranks among the hardest throwers in the prep class.

Selection: Donnie Everett, rhp, Clarksville (Tenn.) HS

 

Keith Laws (http://insider.espn.go.com/mlb/draft/mock/?season=2015&version=3&source=Keith-Law-Mock-Draft)

16th pick he has them taking Georgia HS SS Cornelius Randolph

30th Donnie Everett RHP Clarksville TN

 

Should have 1 more round of mock drafts going live with all new info on Monday early on.
