Lars: Ronny Mauricio is the top-ranked player on the Board whose ETA postdates Wander Franco, so in some vague way you’re predicting he’ll follow Franco as the #1 prospect in baseball. Do you think he’s actually the top candidate, or would you bet on someone else?
Kiley McDaniel: Hmmm hadn’t thought of it that way but you appear to be correct. Bobby Witt and Marco Luciano are right there, George Valera is a threat, Jasson Dominguez lingers, Julio Rodriguez, Riley Greene, C.J. Abrams. Brett Baty is a sneaky possibility. There isn’t a super obvious 2020 draft prospect to be the top one from that class, but the 2021 class has a few, with Brady House the headliner.
Kiley McDaniel: Luis Patino is also there, but I would always bet against pitchers
Kiley McDaniel: And elite college players for 2019 or 2020 that could be #1 types may get promoted too fast
Kiley McDaniel: Kumar Rocker in 2021 could be a fit, though
