  1. Just making a rough list of players who might be available for the rule V draft and the first pick: Marcus Wilson OF Boston Kevin Cron 1b Arizona Jose Siri OF Cincinnati Zach Burdi RP Chisox Jared Walsh 1b/LHP Angels DJ Peters OF/1b Dodgers Nick Gordon SS Twins Jorge Mateo SS/OF Oakland Greg Deichmann OF Oakland Buddy Reed OF Padres Taylor Hearn LHP Rangers Some of these players are on the roster, like Hearn; but may be in danger of losing 40 man.
  2. The idea is to bring in some prospects, kinda like the Dodgers have done.
  3. Kind of an interesting point made in mlbtr chat that the Tigers should take on a salary like Wil Myers, as long as the Padres give some quality prospects in this deal. He'd also fit a need at 1st base.
  4. Are you aware there is 40 rounds in each draft? Most are not elite.
  5. Blaze Jordan, 3B/1B DeSoto Central HS, Southaven, Miss. Perhaps the most famous player in the 2020 draft class, Jordan had a strong summer and was arguably the best hitter at the UAAAG, where he went 2-for-5 and routinely barreled impressive fastball velocity and stayed back on breaking pitches with ease. Jordan combines impressive natural strength and above-average bat speed, though he showed some swing-and-miss throughout the rest of the circuit, including an 0-for-4 performance with four strikeouts at the PGAAC. Still, he has some of the best raw power in the class, with a fairly advanced approach for his age (he’ll be 17.5 at the time of the draft) and is giving himself a chance to stick at third base. https://www.baseballamerica.com/stories/here-are-13-mlb-draft-prospects-who-impressed-scouts-this-summer/
  6. Actually, no. Just the elite of each class are considered "famous".
  7. A famous prospect is one who's been followed/scouted throughout high school and summer showcases like perfect game, etc. by most of baseball.
  8. I guess the Tigers have this thing figured out, but why didn't they claim Kean Wong? He was claimed by the Angels, seems like he would have fit in perfect at 2b.
  9. I saw an interview with Littlefield, the org. wants the bat at SS if possible. They know he's really a 3b, and that's probably his best position. He has plenty arm for either.
