Draft Notes: BA Updated Top 50, Mayo Notes

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.

2012 Draft

  • Got into the chat….none of my comments made it. Now I can’t even find the d**n link!!!!

    Frustrated Foo

    .

  • Giolito , is moving up my boards even though he had the injury complete pitcher with a good arm. Tied for 2nd choice with Zunino behind Carlos Correa.

  • Tim….I read an article that Marrero’s bad offensive season may have been a bad ankle? If that’s the case, he may be a good pick, given that it isn’t chronic.

  • Not a fan of Dahl’s.

    • I’d rather have Marrero or Fried.

      • Another reason we can’t draft Dahl:

        “If I go to a tournament I try to hit .500 or better,” he said. “I keep up with that.”

        The Jacoby Ellsbury fan wears No. 21. It was the only number left when he had last
        pick as a freshman. He’s kept it. His only superstition is a prayer before every at-bat.”

        He ain’t getting # 21…lol
