    Mlb draft 2018

    With less than a month until the 2018 MLB draft (June 4) it's time for this thread. This is a very interesting and important draft because it's (hopefully) the last year we pick in the top 10 for a while.

    Some notable college players are:

    Alec Bohm 3B
    Nick Madrigal 2B
    Joey Bart C
    Travis Swaggerty OF
    Casey Mize RHP
    Brady Singer RHP
    Shane McClanahan LHP
    Jonathan India 3B

    High School players:

    Jarred Kelenic OF
    Matthew Liberatore LHP
    Nolan Gorman 3B
    Carter Stewart RHP

    It looks like a strong college class, I've seen 4 mock drafts, Fangraphs has us taking RHP (HS) Kumar Rocker, this is like a month old mock and Rocker hasn't been strong lately so his stock is going down. Keith Law has us taking 3B (HS) Nolan Gorman, who is believed to have the most raw power in the entire draft, MLB.com Jim Callis also has us with Gorman while Jonathan Mayo has us taking McClanahan.

    In my opinion with how good and young our team is and the upper minors full with blue chip prospects we can bet on ceiling and take a high school kid, I like Gorman and Kelenic as position players and Ethan Hankins was a guy with 1-1 considerations earlier in the year, big risk-high reward option there.

    Most mocks Iíve seen lately have Bart going #2. Gorman is intriguing with so much raw power but thereís obvious risk there. Iíve seen Liberatore linked to the Braves.

    His stock has been falling but Iíd like to see the Braves snag Griffin Conine in the second round.

    I'll be curious to see how AA approaches this draft. I don't know much about his draft philosophy.

    I've been reading some scouts give Gorman a 70 grade power. BA has him as the 6th best player in this class.

    I'm a little iffy on Gorman. The power is nice but I've been reading he may have to move to first and he has more swing and miss in his bat than you would like it.

    Carter Stewart is an intriguing name. 6'6 with a high 90s fastball and an impressive mid 80s curve. Law has him going 7th in his mock.

    I also wouldn't mind seeing the Braves go with an under slot player and trying to grab a couple top guys like we did in 2016.
