Forearm tightness or elbow woes. Not a good sign.

A college lefty wouldn’t be a bad spot there, as you mentioned.

I’ve heard good things about Hunter Harvey, mentioned him last week I believe.
Jordan Sheffield was ranked #7 among HS players, so if he available at 51 I’d take them(not far off the 47 rank either)

But any of those guys in the last, say…20 ranked on the MLB site interest you at that second round spot? Ragira sounds interesting, just kind of wonder about where the heck he’d play. Like Biggio too.

At least not if he keeps pitching like he has recently
The second round pick is #51

Although if Gray keeps pitching like this, he likely won’t be there. When do the Bucs pick in the 2nd round? 50th? I thought (even trading the competitive balance pick) they had 3 of the top 50 picks.
