    I'm guessing college bat since that's where the strength seems to be this year. Not too into the high K guys like Misner and Toglia, though. Hoese is old for the class, which has me a bit concerned since he didn't quite light it up last year as a young junior. Balancing age and performance, I think Will Wilson is my guy among college bats in this range?

    Shewmake is interesting from a body type (lanky with long levers) perspective paired with his lack of strikeouts. Wonder if there's something extra there to be unlocked, or if his swing is gonna be difficult to take to change, a la Heyward.

    A young for the class high school bat would be fun too.

    Also wonder if the Cubs are high on LSU SS Josh Smith. He's performed for multiple years as an SEC shortstop, was good at the Cape as a 19 year old, and the Cubs seem to be tight with the LSU coaching staff. He's small without great tools and was out with injury in 2018, but I can see how he'd emerge as a guy they like despite not getting a ton of round 1 buzz.

    Cubs have also apparently worked out Brooks Lee, switch hitting high school shortstop. Seems like a guy who would be in the mix for their pick at 27.

    I donít really pay attention much anymore, do teams still fast-track college closers? Not middle of June fast, but maybe end of season fast.

    No. Especially hitters. I can't remember a time a hitter was ready to right away. And even relievers are incredibly rare. At 27 it won't happen. Everything is years off.

    I could see that. Heís in a mix with 4 or 5 other HS SS for late 1st/early 2nd and it sounds like he has some of the better offensive tools in the group. His dad is the Cal Poly coach.

    It appears that the majority on here want a college stick with our first pick. That said, if Daniel Espino is there at 27, would you take him?

    Yep. It is incredibly rare. Mike Leake was the last to do it in 2010 and Xavier Nady the last position player to do it in 2000 (according to his own page, he appeared in one game before being sent down).

    I wonder with Leake if he was injured when he was drafted and played his first game in the majors after being draft, because he was drafted in 2009.

    Iím hoping the Cubs believe in Misnerís ability to hit enough to use the pick on him because the tools are loud. If not him, Iím rooting for Busch, Hoese, or Wilson or maybe someone like Baty or Cavaco slipping to 27. If they go HS pitcher Iím ok with Espino. The success rate of HS pitchers with that velocity isnít great, but you need to take some risks to get high end pitchers.

    Dodgers and DBacks also had him in, which makes me wonder about his target bonus number given the size of their respective pools relative to the Cubs, as well as the fact that his dad would be his college coach. But the fact the Cubs had him in at all tells me he probably fits in their range.

    As far as high school bats go, though, I'm just gonna default to hoping for the guys who are really on the young end. Volpe, Lugo, Paris, Cavaco, etc (not counting Hampton since he has way too much leverage for a team with a low bonus pool). I'm not gonna pretend I know how to scout, but relative youth should be at a premium given that these guys are all considered worthy first rounders by the industry.

    Given the Cubs' relationship with LSU baseball, I wonder if they've had much contact with Daniel Espino, considering he's an LSU commit. Stock down a bit as the ridiculous velo from last summer hasn't maintained and his body seems maxed. But that'd be an interesting upside arm, as risky as his profile is.
