Keith Law thinks O's should draft Correa?Shoshana (Boston)
If you were the Orioles would you take Correa at #4? I have to admit the college pitching prospects have me feeling really underwhelmed

Quite happily, yes. There's a good case to be made that Correa will end up the best player in this draft class.

Here's some more info. This is from Bleacher Report, so take it with a grain...
Carlos Correa (Puerto Rico; SS):
Hailing from the famed Puerto Rico Baseball Academy, Carlos Correa has made plenty of noise in the MLB scouting pool.
Usually, shortstops than can hit for both power and average develop the missing piece later down the road in either the minors or once they are established in the league. Correa on the other hand, clearly has five tools early on and is primed for development.
MLB Comparison: Troy Tulowitzki
Both are over 6'4'' and have terrific range at short, but where the comparison is most clear is at the dish. Tulo is one of the top shortstops in the league and a purely enjoyable talent to watch. He has 90 homers since 2009 and is sure to hit between 30 and 40 once again this season.

I'm in! We need positional talent and he & Machado can be on the leftside for a long time for the Orioles.

Want Correa. Wouldn't be surprised to see him ultimately go in top 3 though.

Here is Law's write up from him from over the weekend. Says he has absurd eye hand coordination, he says he could be the best player out of this class. Only 17. I'm definitly liking

How would Correa stack up against Machado as a prospect?

What's the most recent update on Giolito's health? Last I heard he was starting a throwing program. Any chance he's back to full strength and showing it by draft time?

Probably already been discussed but what are our chances of this happening at 4?

Decent chance, it was elbow not shoulder, so even if it's a surgery thing, he would have been fine after TJ.
