Projectable but super raw and incredibly overdrafted. We're eyeing someone later aren't we?

Keith Law wrote:93. Brennen Davis, OF, Basha High School, Chandler, Arizona. Davis started his season late because he was playing basketball, and his best tool, his speed, was seldom on display because of a hamstring injury. He's a very likely center fielder with a chance to end up plus there, bringing bigger questions on whether he'll hit enough to be a regular.

One of the first pop-up guys on the radar this spring, Davis was making noise out in Arizona and having scouts flock in to Basha High School to see him play long before most of the rest of the country was done with winter. A highly-athletic, highly-projectable athlete, Davis is viewed as one of the more raw prospects in the country who will take some time to develop, but is likewise viewed as having considerable upside. He's very athletic and projects to stick in center field long term, can really run and scouts believe that as he matures he has a chance to grow into significant power. He seems likely to head to school at this juncture but could blossom into a high draft choice when he's done at Miami, where he is committed.


PG has him at 162.

What is the benefit of taking one of those guys later instead of with this pick?

At this point if it's not Rocker with one of these comp picks then I'm going to feel pretty damn awful after day 1.

Lower risk. The later you take the risky sign, the less of the draft pool you’re betting on it.

At this point in the draft, don’t expect a prep pick to be underslot, even if he’s picked much higher than the consensus rankings.



Quite surprising to see them go with a “raw” prospect this high. Goes against their MO.

Thus far this draft has Wilken trying to be the smartest guy in the room written all over it.

I did so much cringing those days with Hendry and Wilken. The MLB Network guys had no clue who Hayden Simpson was, that was probably the worst I've ever felt about the state of the Cubs. There's no doubt this organization deserves the benefit of the doubt but I'm not a fan so far

I mean damn, Theo must be completely sauced because that is just a god awful day 1. I don't even know if that's fixable in the next two days.

PG has him at 266.

Cole Roederer, of, Hart HS
L-L, 6-0/175, Acton, Calif.
College Commitment: UCLA

Athletic and toolsy outfielder Cole Roederer is one of the more intriguing prep prospects in the area as his speed and defensive skills stand out, as do his barrel skills. Roederer has a clean and easy lefthanded stroke that is naturally leveraged, and he consistently drives the ball to both gaps with intent and authority. His future defensive home likely dictates his draft stock, as the team that selects him early will likely place him in center field right away in professional baseball. Roederer is a good runner, and has very good instincts in the field as he is able to range well in all directions and make plays. The bat is the tool that my end up determining the height of his ceiling, as Roederer has been a steady presence in the lineup throughout his high school career and in travel ball with GBG. Roederer is currently hitting .392 on the year with seven home runs which is indicative of the power he possesses.

The difference between 15 and 150 on prospect lists is a rounding error, they’re all going to fail, it’s okay.
