Way Too Early 2018 MLB Mock Draft

#1 PHI: Kumar Rocker – RHP – HS (Georgia)

Kumar Is My #1 Pick Right Based On His Advanced Feel For Pitching He Reminds Me A Lot Of Hunter Greene (Cincinnati Reds 2016 First Round Pick) From The 2017 MLB Draft. But I Feel Kumar Is A Better Prospect With A Lot More Realistic Shot At #1 Then Greene Did.


#2 CHW: Brady Singer – RHP – Florida

Brady Has A Very Good Chance At Being The #1 Pick Next Summer If He Has A Similar Season To This Past He Has Very Good Velocity With A Great Feel Of Command. If He Puts Together A Season With The Stuff He Had In This Past Years CWS He Very Well Could Be Our Consensus #1 Pick.


#3 SFG: Seth Beer – OF – Clemson

Seth Is All Bat His Bat Is As Lethal As Anyone I Have Ever Scouted Immense Power With A Great Swing. He Is A Defensive Liability Because Of His Lack Of Athleticism And Speed But You Know He Will Be A Feared Hitter Wherever He Goes.

#4 CINCY: Brice Turang – SS – HS (California)

Brice Has Baseball Bloodlines Which Teams Love In Prospects His Father Brian Turang Played Professional Baseball. Brice Sure Is A Ball Player Drawing Comparisons To Christian Yelich Sure Is High Praise.


#5 OAK: Joe Gray – OF – HS (Mississippi)

Joe Is Like The 2018 Version Of Jordon Adell (LA Angels 2016 1st Round Pick) From The 2017 Draft Class He Has Very Mixed Reviews But Some Scouts See A Five Tool Game In Him. Very High Risk High Reward Right Here.


#6 NYM: Jackson Kowar – RHP – Florida

Jackson Is On A Loaded Florida Roster With Potential #1 Pick In Brady Singer While He May Not Be The Ace Of The Staff He Sure Is A Very High Octane Player Himself. Many Other Teams Would By Far Have Him As Their Ace.


#7 DET: Jarred Kelenic – OF – HS (Wisconsin)

Jarred Is An Athletic Freak Showing Around The Same Type Skill Set As Joe Gray. Five Tool Potential Here With More Raw Power Than Gray.


#8 SPD: Chandler Day – RHP – Vanderbilt

Chandler Day Will Likely Join The Vanderbilt Ranks Of First Round Pitchers In Recent Years His All Around Pitching Ability Is Advanced And He Shows Just As Good Stuff As Anyone In This Draft Class.


#9 ATL: Konnor Pilkington – LHP – Mississippi State

Konnor Is A Big Physical Lefty With Nasty Drop Dead Great Pitches Needs To Work On Pitchability And Command But If It All Clicks Watch Out!


#10 TOR: Casey Mize – RHP – Auburn

Casey Played Last Year Like A #1 Overall Pick Showed Great All Around Stuff But He Needs To Repeat That Stuff In Order To Be A High Pick In Next Years Draft.


#11 PIT: Nick Madrigal – 2B/SS – Oregon State

Think College, More Advanced Version Of Nick Allen (Oakland A’s 2016 3rd Round Pick). Shares Similar Profile With Defensive First Oriented Play But Has A Deadly Bat As Well Only Draw Back Is 5’8” Frame.


#12 KCR: Ethan Hankins – RHP – HS (Georgia)

Recently Watched Ethan Pitch At The PG All American Game He Showed A Great Sense Of Baseball IQ And A Great Feel For The Game Love This Kids Stuff.


#13 SEA: Kendall Simmons – SS – HS (Georgia)

Kendall Is Very Athletic, Toolsy SS Who Could Shoot Up Draft Boards With A Great Spring. From Tape He Shows A Great Swing With Good Bat Speed Could Really Shoot Up Boards Come Next Draft.


#14 MIA: Luken Baker – 1B – TCU

Luken Baker Reminds Me Of Evan White (Seattle Mariners 2016 First Round Pick). He Will Likely Go In The Same Range Of Picks As White Barring A Bad College Season. Bat First Oriented Very Good Power But Doesn’t Have Versatility To Play Anywhere Other Than 1B.


#15 TEX: Jake Mangum – OF – Mississippi State

Jake Mangum Showed A Great Deal Of A All Around Above Average Game. Has Some Pop, Speed, Defense And Power.


#16 TBR: Mateo Gil – SS – HS (Texas)

Mateo Has Flown Up Draft Boards With A Great Summer On The Showcase Has A Very Unique Profile For A SS And Could Be Even Higher Than This Next Year On Draft Day.


#17 STL: Owen Meaney – RHP – HS (Texas)

Big Physical Righty Who Throws Hard And Has A Lot Of Raw Talent High Upside High Reward.

#18 BALT: Justin Hooper – LHP – UCLA

Justin Was Considered A Top Draft Prospect Out Of High School But Back Issues Made Him Go To UCLA He Has Been Very Solid But Injury Concerns Slip Him Here.


#19 LAA: Will Banfield – C – HS (Georgia)

Will Is An All Around Solid Catcher Does A Little Of Everything And Has Shown A Good Amount Of Pop In His Swing That Makes Him Intriguing.


#20 MIL: Trevor Larnach – OF – Oregon State

Trevor Is Another All Around Solid Contributor Very Solid Yet Not Flashy.


#21 MIN: Jason Bilous – RHP – Coastal Carolina

Jason Has A Great Durable Frame To Thrive As A Starting Pitcher He Also Has A Higher Floor With Less Risk.

#22 NYY: Kris Bubic – LHP – Stanford

Kris Could Honestly Fly Up Draft Boards With A Strong Season Given His Strikeout Rate With Great Velocity. He Could Be Top 10 Next Year Very High Ceiling.


#23 COL: Triston Casas – 1B/3B – HS (Florida)

Triston Reminds Me Of Your Very Stereotypical Corner Infielder. Very Huge Raw Power Great Swing With Good Bat Speed He Has A High Floor With How Developed His Bat Is.


#24 CHC: Josh Stowers – OF – Louisville

Josh Has A Very Great All Around Game Very Skilled Hitter With More Polish Than Most College Hitters Has A High Walk Rate With Low Strikeout Rate Love This Kids Tools Could Rise With Strong Spring.

#25 ARZ: Sean Hjelle – RHP – Kentucky

Sean Is An Absolute Giant Coming In At 6’11” And 200 Lbs. He Has Very Good Mechanics For His Size And Is A Hard Throwing Physical RHP He Could Be A Very Good Value Pick Here With The Right Coaching.


#26 BOS: Sean Guilbe – SS – HS (Pennsylvania)

Let Me First Off Start By Saying BIG BIG BAT. He Plays SS With Ease As Well Great Range But His Highlight Is Honestly His Bat.

#27 CLE: Luke Bartnicki – LHP – HS (Georgia)

Lights Out At The Perfect Game All American Game. Really Improved Throughout The Summer Showed Very Good Arsenal Of Pitches Has Drop Dead Great Stuff When He’s In The Groove.


#28 HOU: Charles Mack – SS – HS (New York)

Huge Potential With Bat. Scouts Dream Of Hitters Like Mack That Play SS He Could Rise A Good Amount But Needs Some Defensive Improvement.


#29 WAS: Shane McClanahan – LHP – South Florida

Has Huge Strikeout Rate And Is Younger Than Most College Draftees. With A Great Spring This Might Be The Floor For Where He Will Go.


#30 LAD: Bryan Hoeing – RHP – Louisville

Bryan Is A Pitcher That Does Everything Above Average Has Decent Velocity And Basically Just Gets The Job Done Good Safe Value Pick Here.
