The draft is about four and a half hours away. We’re already getting a ton of predictions this morning, although no picks have been really locked in, making the top eight fluid at this point. Here are two updates on the draft rankings and what could happen.
**Baseball America has released their updated top 50 rankings. They’ve got Albert Almora ranked eighth, with Max Fried jumping up in to the top seven. Other notables are Deven Marrero at 15, and David Dahl at 17. Their previous rankings had Almora seventh, Fried 11th, Dahl 12th, and Marrero 14th.
**Jonathan Mayo has a few notes. He notes that the Royals at number five will be a key pick. They could go with Max Fried or Carlos Correa. If they go with Fried, Mayo says the Pirates could go with David Dahl. Mayo also adds that the rumors for the Pirates still run from Marrero to Dahl.
