2019 General Draft Thread

Recommended Posts

Stinson goes to Tampa Bay. I am super curious what he signs for. They are having an interesting draft.

I like their draft a lot so far.   Seems they have been in the right place a fair amount.

My attitude is, let Dr. Elias do his job.   He’s in a much better position to evaluate players and formulate draft strategy than I am. These last two picks don’t wow me on their face, but I’m sure he’s thought out the reasons to pick these guys.   And I do like the philosophy of drafting guys who can play the premium defensive positions.    The pitchers will appreciate it.

Sig may like them as well. Plus, they did have wooden bats in their hands.

Orioles definitely have better pitching than hitting in their system.  Last couple drafts by Orioles have been pitching heavy.

Can he get to his power?  How does his body project?  

The body doesn’t project and the power is a hitter’s park illusion. He has good contact skills and can play SS well. 

Edit: this is about Ortiz.

Hernaiz, Darell
Americas HS

The first guy drafted that I’m not familiar with.

It would be the O’s pick, swing looks pretty darn good though, I’ll have more later.

The Marlins have taken two college seniors with their first two picks today and none of their three picks yesterday look like major overslots. Curious what they do with their round 5 pick.

They took Fitterer. That makes sense.
