I'm really not sure where Brentz goes at this point. I think the only questions are in his makeup and pitch recognition. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes early due to the lack of impact college bats, but I also wouldn't be surprised if he falls due to the amount of quality pitching that is available for early picks.

I really think that we are going to see Yasmani Grandal taken somewhat early this year. A high floor catcher is a very desirable commodity, and we have seen similar picks with Jason Castro in 2008 and Tony Sanchez in 2009. The Royals have been linked to him thus far this year.
