WikiBaseball's comments: Although Detroit’s farm system is already heavy on arms, Mize has set himself apart from everyone else making him the favorite to go #1 overall.

WikiBaseball's comments: The system has a lot of power-hitters. There is a need for a bat-first middle infielder. Madrigal may be the pure hitter in the draft and is a great fit for the organization.

WikiBaseball's comments: The Phillies are getting close to contending which is why I feel that a college player would fit their timeline better. They have a lot of outfield and RHP prospects. With Jorge Alfaro looking to be behind the dish long-term, Alec Bohm seems to be a better fit than Bart

WikiBaseball's comments: One of baseballs top-system, the seem to lack a LHP near the top of the prospect boards. Liberatore has an extremely advanced feel for pitching. He seems to be a safe pick for being a high school arm and has the upside to have three plus pitches.

WikiBaseball's comments: The Reds have a fairly balanced system. After taking a high-school righty in the first round last year, I believe they do that same this year with Carter Stewart. Good mechanics besides early glove side pull. With a mid-90s fb and a potential plus breaker, if he can clean up his glove side, he may turn out to be the best pitcher in this draft.

WikiBaseball's comments: Despite a plethora of injuries this year, catcher is a position of strength for the organization. Despite that I feel Joey Bart will fall here, just because I feel like he can’t really fall much further. With a solid bat and a good arm behind the plate, Bart probably won’t fall farther than this.

WikiBaseball's comments: The Padres are in need of a outfielder to join their currently strong system. Although some may question his ability to stay in center, Kelenic provides great hitting ability along with a good arm, decent power and solid speed. Kelenic is a good organizational fit.

WikiBaseball's comments: I would consider the Braves to have the best farm. You can’t really find a weakness in the organization. They do have a big league need at 3B and although no where close to big league ready, I say they go with the power-hitter, Nolan Gorman. Although there are some holes in his swing, Gorman has great bat speed and has arguably the most power in the draft.

WikiBaseball's comments: Oakland possess an exciting young lineup poised to contend in the near future. Last year they took a Gator arm who looked to go 1-1 but draft stock fell towards the draft. I say they do same again with Florida’s Brady Singer.

WikiBaseball's comments: The Pirates have an average, but balanced farm. In a tough NL Central it looks to be a long-time until they are contenders again. Although some question if McClanahan anc his triple-digit fb are better suited for the pen, the left-hander could be worth the risk.
