A few 2011 draft prospect notes heading in to the weekend:
–Earlier today I took a look at whether Gerrit Cole could make a run at the number one overall pick this year. Jason Churchill and Keith Law have some other guys who are trying to pass Anthony Rendon for the number one pick.
-Anthony Rendon has drawn two walks in each of his last five games. His OBP during that stretch is .667.
–MLBTR did a Q&A with top pitching prospect Matt Purke.
-Frankie Piliere, formerly of FanHouse, and a former scout with the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers, has his top 50 draft eligible prospects at USA Today.
