Re: 2020 MLB Actual Draft Day(s) Thread

MLB.com: What was your impression of the Cubs’ staff and front office from your side of the computer screen during their Zoom call with you?

BA: 12 Picks We Loved From Day 2 Of The 2020 MLB Draft RHP Koen Moreno, Cubs (147): If Moreno had more of a chance to pitch this spring, I think it’s likely the Cubs wouldn’t have had a shot to take him at No. 147. Every time Moreno pitches, it seems like he takes a step forward, as was the case fo...

Re: 2020 MLB Actual Draft Day(s) Thread

I love the Jordan Nwogu pick. Remember when the poor kid dropped the fly ball against UCLA in the Supers last year but this is great:



The Red Sox just drafted Brian Dopirak.

Really throught Ben Hernandez would make it to the Cubs in round 2.

And there goes Jared Jones.

Re: 2020 MLB Actual Draft Day(s) Thread

Over the last few days, various publications linked a handful of guys to the Cubs as possible 2nd rounders or even later.

The only ones still available are prep RHPs Jared Jones, Ben Hernandez and ECU 1B Alec Burleson (who would be a later round pick today).

Ben Badler at BA: Instant Analysis: The Cubs stay local to pick Howard and have to be happy to be able to land the top high school shortstop in the draft in the middle of the first round. Howard is a true shortstop who projects to stay at the position, with easy actions in the field and in the batte...

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EaPCWGrXkAIkOA-?format=jpg&name=medium https://blogs.fangraphs.com/day-1-draft-recap/ It’s a good read. Sounds like the Orioles were hoping for Bitsko after going with Kjerstad at 2. Will be interesting to see how the Red Sox play things today with all that savings.

Re: 2020 MLB Actual Draft Day(s) Thread

So what are we expecting for the next pick? A super safe college starter like a Logan Allen or a Nick Swiney? Or do they double up on HS kids, knowing that slot at #51 is still probably enough to afford one without having to punt a pick later? Imo, if you’re going prep once more, it has to be the 2...

Re: 2020 MLB Actual Draft Day(s) Thread

Well I still don’t think the Kjerstad pick made sense, but now with Bitsko off the table, I’m curious what picks 30 and 39 are going to look like for BAL. Jared Kelley is still on board. I could see guys like Cade Horton or Carson Montgomery in the mix - both have commitments that could require big...

The normal % of most prep kids picked in the 1st round, close to 0%. 0% chance he signs, or 0% chance he opts for college? Derwood, read the room. In Derwood’s defense, I responded incorrectly since he asked how likely he’d sign. It’s close to 100% likely. Dwrwood, almost all these kids have a coll...

Ian 9:12 You said the angels pick was coming down to $... Was their pick underslot?
Eric A Longenhagen 9:13 Unsure, perhaps. Assume Howard isn't over or maybe wanted more money to play for someone other than Cubs?


Don't want to read too much into it but I assume he'll be around slot.

I'd put him behind Davis, Hoerner, Marquez and Amaya and would probably put him behind Hernandez when Christian signs. But those first four guys are generally (but not universally) considered top 100 prospects.
