– MLB.com mocks the draft’s first round with a couple of surprises, including Tanner Scheppers falling to the Mariners at No. 27.
– Right-hander Kyle Gibson, who was expected to go in the first half of the first round, will likely fall after being diagnosed with a stress fracture in his forearm.
– Baseball America’s John Manuel and Jim Callis alternate picks and make their first-round choices.
– Besides Stephen Strasburg to the Nats, I’m saying Jake Eilopoulos
to the Orioles has to be the biggest lock in the draft. A Canadian
left-hander with a Greek name? It’s like the perfect storm.
