craiglambert50's comments: Detroit is rumored to have interest in Kelenic here, but will likely go with the top player on their board. Mize has largely separated himself from the rest of the pack with a strong spring. Injuries are a concern with Mize, which may end up preventing him from going 1-1.

craiglambert50's comments: Swaggerty has 5 tool potential and is a good combination of a safe pick who also comes with high upside.

craiglambert50's comments: Bohm's bat, more specifically his power, will take him off the board early. The question is whether shaky defense will force him over to 1B.

craiglambert50's comments: Madrigal has the best hit tool in the draft. While he may not hit for much power, he provides plus speed as well as solid at the second.

craiglambert50's comments: Kelenic is rumored to be in play at 1-1. While that is unlikely, he has a decent chance at going in the top 5 picks.

craiglambert50's comments: Bart, with his solid defense behind the player and above average power should hear his name called in the top 10 picks.

craiglambert50's comments: Stewart could sneak into the top 5 due to a mid-90's fastball paired with an excellent curveball with elite spin rates. Even if his change and command fail to develop- as they are expected to, he could still carve out a role as a late inning relief pitcher.

craiglambert50's comments: Liberatore hasn't been consistent enough this spring to merit a top 5 selection, but should come off the board in the top ten picks.

craiglambert50's comments: Health is a concern for McClahan as is his command to a lesser extent, but a 99 MPH fastball to go along with potentially two plus pitches is there.

craiglambert50's comments: Rolison has three above average offerings and should go in the top 10-15 picks.

craiglambert50's comments: Gilbert is a safe pick for Baltimore at #11, and could be the first pitcher in this draft class to reach the big leagues. His fastball,curveball and command are above average. The development of his changeup and slider will determine how good of a starter Gilbert is at the big league level.

craiglambert50's comments: Scott has really shot up draft boards this spring, and is a lock for the first round. He looks like a future CFer, with his speed being his best tool.

craiglambert50's comments: Concerns about being a 1B only type prospect have caused Gorman to slide down draft boards this spring.

craiglambert50's comments: Dipoto typically likes selecting college talent in round 1, and Singer should help to bolster a Mariners system that needs arms desperately.

craiglambert50's comments: Texas does not shy away from high upside, high risk prep talent. See their first few picks from 2017. Rocker may have as much potential as anyone in this draft. Signability is a serious concern here.

craiglambert50's comments: Winn has a good fastball/curveball combo. His slider and change look to be average offerings, the latter of which he doesn't use much in high school ball.

craiglambert50's comments: A year ago, Turang was firmly in the conversation to go 1-1. He could conceivably go higher than this, but his tools haven't been as consistent this season.

craiglambert50's comments: Weathers may need an above slot deal to be signed away from Vanderbilt, and with a comp pick at the end of round 1, the Royals are in a good position to make this move.

craiglambert50's comments: Kowar is a safe pick here for the Cardinals, and he could move quickly through their farm system.

craiglambert50's comments: Vasil has improved his draft stock, and he might go even higher than this.

craiglambert50's comments: Rodriguez has been in the upper 90's with average or better secondaries this spring.

craiglambert50's comments: Larnach's bat is what gets him drafted here and is a similar player to Jenista.

craiglambert50's comments: Beck would have gone in the first round last year had it not been for a back injury. This year, Beck has worked his way back into the first round. The Yankees typically prefer college players, and Beck makes sense here.

craiglambert50's comments: Hankins has been injured and his velocity has been down at times this spring.

craiglambert50's comments: Eierman started out slow, but has hit more lately. He may move over to 3B in pro ball.

craiglambert50's comments: Bohm's teammate should be a first round pick with above average power that profiles well in RF.

craiglambert50's comments: Edwards' best tool is his plus-plus speed, and he may hit for power at the SS position.

craiglambert50's comments: A good athlete, Seigler has enough ability behind the plate and with the bat to be drafted in round 1.

craiglambert50's comments: Denaburg was shut down with biceps tendonitis, and assuming this is no long term injury, a team will take a chance on a prep pitcher who would have gone much higher if healthy. Signability is a concern with Denaburg, but two first round picks should make the task easier.

craiglambert50's comments: India has done nothing but hit his way into the first round this spring.
