Regardless, the consensus on Martin is that he possesses elite bat-to-ball skills with still-developing power, speed, raw athleticism and a broad range of potential defensive homes. Bailey just seems like an odd choice, but also he shouldn’t last so long anyway, Stunned Kelley isn’t in this mock, best RHP in this draft IMO albeit a very tight race. “FG” refers to the top 100 only list, which often came out before the team lists were finished and grades weren’t 100% finalized. Abel a tier ahead of both tho. Detmers has high starter probability and probably a short timeline to the big leagues, both fits for the Angels. Chicago White Sox- Patrick Bailey, C, North Carolina State, 12. I disagree about control/command. San Diego Padres- Zach Veen, OF, Spruce Creek HS (FL). by Handedness, The Universal DH Will Not Kill Your Fantasy Plans, MLB’s Latest Proposal to Players Hardly Looks Like a Winner. Robert Hassell is a great fit with this org, too. Oakland A’s- Slade Cecconi, RHP, Miami. As a kid, did you ever play against the kids one grade above you in a sport? His fastball traits are considered less desirable by analytically-inclined draft rooms, which Washington’s is not. Toronto Blue Jays- Max Meyer, RHP, Minnesota. Kelley was the FB command guy last year, but Abel’s command of three pitches is routinely lauded. Age is a significant factor in draft stock, it’s why kids are classifying up as teams aren’t fooled by older guys more physically mature beating up on younger talent.
Previous work can also be found at Sports On Earth, CrashburnAlley and Prospect Insider. Not a big one, but he doesn’t need a big bump. I think Hassell is a threat to go anywhere from nine onward and is probably off the board at this point, and perhaps I don’t have his name attached to teams right in front of this because they assume he’ll be gone. Gonzales, too, but to a lesser degree. Texas Rangers- Nick Loftin, SS, Baylor All three of these are strong value picks.
The Giants seem to be kicking the tires on several higher upside high schoolers (Pennsylvania high school righty Nick Bitsko, NorCal catcher Tyler Soderstrom) and they took a player with a truncated track record last year in Hunter Bishop. Colorado Rockies – Patrick Bailey, C, North Carolina State.
St. Louis Cardinals- Tyler Soderstrom, C, Turlock HS (CA). Miami Marlins- Asa Lacy, LHP, Texas A&M Kelley currently has no third pitch and has a bad body, maybe 2 awesome pitches will be enough but to be a FOR arm it likely isn’t. 13.
Updated: Saturday, October 17, 2020 10:52 AM ET, Park Factors Los Angeles Angels- Reid Detmers, LHP, Louisville. All major league baseball data including pitch type, velocity, batted ball location, Austin Martin Toronto Blue Jays Transactions, By Steve Adams | July 8, 2020 at 2:50pm CDT. Boston Red Sox- Garrett Crochet, LHP, Tennessee, 18. 23. Foscue walked 15 times and struck out just thrice before the shutdown. Even Nick Bitsko, who teams have the least history with because of when he reclassified, was widely seen last fall (he was awesome) and by about a third of teams in the bullpen this spring — he clearly belongs near the top of the high school arms in this draft.
Rather, most scouts seem to think he could handle any of third base, second base or center field, with shortstop not entirely out of the question.
As we profile new names we will develop our own ranking which may or may not be the same as the Fangraphs ranking.
Tampa Bay Rays- Slade Cecconi, RHP, Miami, 25. Teams selecting in the next couple of picks have been doing work on Lacy’s medical, which is either a symptom of the possibility that Baltimore cuts a deal at two and Martin goes to Miami (which, again, I don’t think is true), or them thinking he might fall due to something related to the medical. Detroit Tigers- Spencer Torkelson, 1B, Arizona State, 2. And they’re both a bit more projectable. I hadn’t followed Kiley since he migrated (defected?) Nothing sexy here, just strong value. Again, two value college picks.
There is a bit of a college bat drought in this area that I think up-the-middle players like Foscue and Dingler are most likely to fill, though I think some corner guys like Arizona’s Austin Wells and North Carolina’s Aaron Sabato could be in the mix for teams if they’re really leaning hard on college performers this year. Highest-ranked newcomer: Austin Martin, SS/OF (No. Team reviews of the medicals I’m aware of have ranged from “unconcerned, very typical” to “slightly above-average concern.”. Kelley, please!
Teams have found that the guys like Bitsko, who are practically one grade below guys like Kelly and Abel, have more upside. Washington Nationals- Cole Wilcox, RHP, Georgia All major league baseball data including pitch type, velocity, batted ball location, Baltimore Orioles- Austin Martin, CF, Vanderbilt If one of Gonzales or Hancock gets here, I think they’re heavy favorites to be Seattle’s pick.
Cleveland Indians- Peter Crow-Armstrong, CF, Harvard Westlake HS (CA), 24.
If neither of them gets here, I think the mix is Veen, Meyer, and Detmers.
5. Colorado Rockies – Heston Kjerstad, OF, Arkansas, 10. 27. Are either of these things true or just you said it? Milwaukee Brewers – Justin Foscue, 2B, Mississippi State. I think part of the reason so many high schoolers get mentioned on the phone in connection with the Giants is because they’re assessing signability in case someone falls to their next pick.
Close. Based on some of Houston’s activity in the draft during Elias’ tenure there (especially in 2011 and 2015), the size of Baltimore’s bonus pool (just shy of $13.9 million, the most in this draft), where they pick later (30, 39), and the fat tier of 45 FV prospects in this class who should spill into those two picks, Baltimore should consider an under slot deal at two.
But neither Martin nor Gonzales has particularly impressive measurable power, which, again, seemed to be a driving variable during Elias’ stint with the Astros. I do think it’s close tho, The Kelley breaking ball thing feels hyperbolic…Callazo and Law seem to take less issue with it and overall it’s more his third pitch than non-existent.
Crochet is falling because of injury and makeup concerns but his stuff is incredible, a line I copied and pasted from Jay Groome’s 2016 report. But between those 2 being more athletic/having better builds/showing some feel for breaking ball spin I’d have Kelley third of the group. I think Bitsko is probably signable at slot here and he’s one of few remaining pitchers with the fastball traits the D-backs clearly covet (Abel and Duke righty Bryce Jarvis are the others).
Los Angeles Dodgers – Bryce Jarvis, RHP, Duke. Hassell is also just great value at this point and would be a threat to go at any of these picks. This seems to be Gonzales’ floor, and I think it’d be Hancock’s too (unless the medical is bad, which we don’t know yet), but neither is available in this scenario.
Generally, being a 17 YO elite hitting prospect is more meaningful than being a 17 YO elite pitching prospect. Based on this, Moreno’s decision to furlough almost the entire scouting staff before the draft (one more paycheck for each of them would have gotten them there), and Los Angeles’ trade of Will Wilson to dump salary last year, other teams are speculating that the Angels’ approach to the draft might be compromised by the owner’s financial motives, though the public relations hit from that seems more devastating than paying a couple players a heavily-deferred bonus.
I have them attached to Cole Henry with their next pick.
Some teams seem more inclined to buy into some of the pop-up college arms who made four good starts in February and March rather than cold weather high schoolers who have a multi-year pedigree of performance.
Abel and Bitsko both show ability there, and are commanding breaking balls to boot.
Kelley’s changeup is arguably the best as secondary pitch in the class. Seattle Mariners- Nick Gonzales, 2B, New Mexico State The first round of the 2020 amateur draft begins on June 10, and the growing feeling is that the Tigers will take Spencer Torkelson with the first overall pick.Â Torkelson comes into the draft on the heels of an outstanding college career, which Baseball America’s Teddy Cahill notes could have reached historic proportions had Torkelson’s 2020 campaign not been cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic.Â The young slugger had a shot at breaking the NCAA record for walks in a season, and Torkelson sat just two home runs away from setting a new Arizona State school record for career homers (a record held by longtime Braves third baseman Bob Horner).Â Though Torkelson will miss out on these individual accomplishments and a shot at being part of a potential national championship contender, his Arizona State tenure has already been the stuff of legend, especially considering that Torkelson came to the program on a relatively low profile after not being drafted by a Major League team when coming out of high school. Considered by some to be the best all-around player in this year’s draft, Martin went a slight bit later than was generally expected after the O’s cut a deal with No. Below is my second 2020 mock draft.
