First of what will be many players with some draft helium this year.

Starting to hear some No. 1 pick chatter from scouts about USF's Kyle Zimmer. He was up to 99 on Friday with killer curve, tons of strikes.
He's on my potential Sox draft picks list. Being a power armed college pitcher and all. He won't be around at 13 if he keeps it up. Still a ways to go obviously.

Bud has said that an international draft is inevitable.

There's a chance 2012 could be the last year without an international draft. More likely, I think we see it in 2014.

More on Zimmer.

Georgia Southern's Victor Roache broke his wrist. Could miss the entire season. Big blow to his stock. Especially as he was viewed as a 1st rounder, potentially a top 10 pick.

Hahn was scouting Deven Marrero and Brady Rogers on Friday. Deven will assuredly be a 1st rounder. Rogers is probably more of a supplemental or second round pick at this point in time.

Lucas Giolito line: threw 6 1/3 innings of hitless ball. Finished with one-hitter in 6 1/3. 8 Ks, 0 walks. 81 pitches. HW 11, ECR 0.

Breaking news: Lucas Giolito of Harvard-Westlake just hit 100 mph on a radar gun. Pitching vs. ECR.


Giolito could be the first prep right hander to go first overall in draft history. His teammate Max Fried is also a potential top 10 overall pick.

Duke's Stroman was dealing today. His stock is increasing as the transition from reliever to starter has gone rather well so far.

John Manuel ‏ @johnmanuelba Reply Retweet Favorite Open
Stroman hits 94 on pitch 102, his 74th strike, then get K No. 17 on pitch 106. Best single-game K effort on #ACC is 18.

Sickels and Matt Garrioch have their first combined mock draft up. This is largely for fun and obviously holds no merit whatsoever this early on.

13) White Sox (Matt): Man, why do I have to do the White Sox? They need help everywhere, from the top to the bottom. While looking at prep players is one way to go, there is more room for failure there. Let's try to avoid more of that. They seem to like college pitchers that are close to the majors more than anything else. A player that is deserving of this spot and fits that role is the aforementioned Marcus Stoman, RHP, Duke.
I've been intrigued by Stroman. Need to see how he holds up as a starter though. Also need to see how consistent he can be with his secondaries. Personally, I think I'd prefer Chris Beck is he's still on the board if the Sox go college arm.

Look out for Trenton Moses from Southeast Missouri State. He has great power and good defense from what I watched.

BREAKING NEWS: RHP Lucas Giolito is out of the season for Harvard-Westlake. Sprained UCL. No surgery needed. 6-10 weeks rehab. #mlbdraft

Giolito's injury ends any thought of a high school RHP going No. 1 overall for the first time in #mlbdraft history @mlbdraft

Jim Callis ‏ @jimcallisBA Reply Retweet Favorite Open
Doesn't need surgery now, but no guarantee rest/rehab cure him. Future TJ a possibility. @zukows10: How serious is Giolito injury? #mlbdraft


Quite unfortunate for the kid. Stock has dropped huge. Good chance he goes to UCLA now.

The draft is about 7 weeks away, and the pack has started to separate itself a bit. Many consider the top five to include Buxton, Zunino, Zimmer, Appel and Gausman. Wacha has major helium as well. Buxton has largely displaced Appel as the favorite to go 1:1.

Myself, I'm still really high on Marcus Stroman and would love for him to fall to the Sox, but I'd imagine he goes top 10. He's been fantastic this year.

Should be real interesting to see how teams approach the draft with the new limitations. I wouldn't be surprised to see some pre-draft "agreements" for underslot 1st round reaches. This would allow teams to diversify into multiple overslot, higher talent signings in later rounds. For example an expensive "A" first round pick and multiple "C" prospects versus a cheaper "B" first round pick reinvested into multiple "B" prospects in the next few rounds.

Either way, I have a feeling mock drafts are now going to be even more worthless than usual this year.
