    I hope Drew signs before June. I'd love to have that extra pick in the mid 30's.



    Me too, I wouldn't mind the extra pick and the added bonus money as well.  Having 3 picks in the top 40 would allow us to take 1-2 college players who can get to the majors quick and take more risk with a raw highschooler.  I'd prefer a college arm, highschool arm, and either a power bat. 



    Sounds about right.

    Might not happen though...

     

    Boras: Morales, Drew Willing To Wait Until June To Sign By  Steve Adams [March 14 at 4:56pm CST]

    Though Ervin Santana and Nelson Cruz have both caved and agreed to one-year deals after their free agent markets were significantly weighed down by their rejection of qualifying offers, Kendrys Morales and Stephen Drew have no such plans to do, agent Scott Borastells ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. Instead, the two plan to continue working out while awaiting multi-year deals, and could hold out until after the June amateur draft to do so (after which the draft compensation will no longer apply).

    Boras feels that the qualifying offer system has "basically prevented them from free agency," opining that the system has instead placed both players "in jail." He offers criticism both of the system and of those who feel that his clients simply made a poor decision by not accepting a qualifying offer. Says Boras:

    "Everybody talks about these players turning down these (one-year) qualifying offers like they're village idiots. The reason is, they don't want to be in the same position again next year. If I'm a good player, I'm going to take the prospect of free agency. If I'm one of these players, I'm not on the train to free agency -- I'm on the ferris wheel of multiple qualifying offers. It is circular. There is no escape hatch to the system."

    Whether or not one agrees with Boras' assessment of the system, there's certainly truth to the fact that players coming off strong seasons don't want to sign a one-year deal and find themselves in the same situation a year later. Players want security and stability both for themselves and their families; the prospect of either being separated from your family for a year or continually moving your family around the country does not appeal to many.

     

    From my view, it's rather telling that Jhonny Peralta, who is nearly 11 months older than Drew and coming off a season in which he served a 50-game suspension for PEDs, was able to secure a four-year, $53MM contract while Drew remains unemployed. There's something to be said about contending teams with significant payrolls simply not feeling a need to add a shortstop, but one would imagine that Drew's market would improve significantly were the qualifying offer not attached. That's not to say he'd have received as large a guarantee as Peralta, but a reasonable three-year deal seems like it should have been attainable. A one-year deal, even at a higher rate than the average annual value he might receive on a three- or four-year deal, doesn't seem practical for a 30-year-old shortstop coming off a solid season.




    He's definitely playing his last card, however if he feels a team will swoop in and give him 15/m 1 year, I think they will wait.  But if someone gets injured in the next 2 months I can see a team swooping in a biting the bullet with Drew.  Still a decent chance he signs before the draft IMO but the odds of him waiting until afterwards do seem to be rising.

    Re: This year's MLB Draft

    If Drew signs with Detriot, we move up to 25 and 32 and we gain a pick at 33.

    Even still right now we sit at 26, Atlanta lost the 26th pick when they signed Santana

    Re: This year's MLB Draft

    They great thing too is if our comp picks move up 1 slot each they won't budge even with another Q.O. out there.

    If a team signs a Q.O. free agent the draft pick lost is replaced by a comp pick slotted all in front of our comp picks. (with the exception of St. Louis)

    For Example When Texas signed CHOO they lost their first rounder, so our first round pick moved up but Cincinnati gained a comp pick in front of our comp pick; so the comp picks stayed where they are.  

    But Seattles first rounder is protected so when they signed Cano they lost their second round pick, BUT if someone else signs Morales Seattle would automatically lose the comp pick they would gain and their 2nd rounder would be reinstated. 

    So if Drew signs with Detroit all of our picks move up. Now if only someone picking between 12-25 would sign Morales, then we would have pick # 24 32 33 in the draft next year.

    Winning the world series, replacing 2/3 free agents with top prospects and netting 2 picks in what is considered the deepest draft in years is BIG.

    This years draft is being described as not so special at the top, last years top 10 was stronger, but everything in the back of the first round down is considered as deep if not deeper than in 2011 and 2005. If you want to get an ideal of how good those draft were for us take a look here.

    Re: This year's MLB Draft

    If Drew signs it will give us more bonus money too with the assigned pick which I'm trying to guess how much it will be.

    Assuming we net the 25th 32 &33 picks this year we would have had $7,962,400 in bonus pool money according to last years slot values. we had $6830,200 in bonus pool money last year.  Last years pool also increased by 8.2% so assuming it increases by as much (probably at least similiar) we would net $8,615,316. in Bonus pool cash; almost 2 million more to spend than last year. Also you can exceed you pool by 5% without losing a 1st round pick, so if the right players are there I can see Boston willling to spend up to $9,046,082.00 dollars.

    If only we had that money last year, we could have signed Ryan Boldt and Jordan Sheffield away. But I'll take that kind of cash in what is perceived to be a VERY strong draft.

    Anyways those number are likely not exact, but I think it's going to be very close and somewhere in the range of $9 million.

    Re: This year's MLB Draft

    If Drew signs with Detroit and Morales signs with Seatlle, we'll have 3 out of the top 33 picks!

    Sweet!

    If Morales signs with a team like Pittsburgh or Tampa Bay, we'd move up to #24 in the first round, but would stay at #32 and 33 in the comp round as Seattle would gain a pick before our 2.

    No it would be 31 and 32.  Right now our comp pick is at 33, if Drew signs the Ellsbury comp moves up because the comp pick that is generated slots in BEHIND that pick. so we would have the 32nd and 33rd picks.  Then if Morales signs with a team whose pick is unprotected all of the picks move up because Seattle would automatically lose their comp pick if generated (Cano signing, first pick is protected) slotting us in at 31, 32.

    Up until recently I thought 24, 32, 33 was the best possible outcome but it is really 24, 31, 32.

    You are right on the Morales point, but I moved the picks up with the Drew signing already.

    Right, we have the 26 and 33 pick right now.

    If Drew signs with Detroit.  Detroit loses pick, our first round moves up and we gain a comp pick.  We then sit at 25 and 32, 33.

    If Morales signs with Tampa (not going to happen just hypothetical) Our first round pick moves up to 24 and our comp picks move up to 31, 32.

    Remember the Drew pick slots in behind Ellsbury, so when our first pick moves up our first comp pick moves up as well, because that pick would slot behind Ellsbury.

    Re: This year's MLB Draft

    Yes, I forgot that Seattle would give up their comp pick (due to the Cano signing), if Morales signs elsewhere.

    24, 31 and 32 would be better than I expected earlier this winter.

    Here's who SB Nation has going in picks 19-37. (Note: some slots have changed since they made these picks)...

     

    19. Cincinnati Reds: Aaron Nola, RHP, LSU

    Nola has continued to pitch really well each season at LSU. He is a guy that stands above his peers in college but is a mid-rotation guy in pro ball, I think. His stuff is average but not dominant. He has good command and eats innings. He could be a long term peice in the Reds rotation but he won't be an ace.

    20. Tampa Bays Rays: Kyle Schwarber, C/1B, Indiana U.

    Lets not kid ourselves, with the new defensive metrics and analysis, I don't think Schwarber will get much run behind the dish. Schwarber's value is in his stick. He has some swing and miss but he has huge power. He should hit for good average but will work counts well. Schwarber could be an impact bat in the Rays order for a long time.

    21. Cleveland Indians: Derek Fisher, OF, Virginia

    With a strong pedigree, Fisher is still a first round player with good hitting ability, power potential and speed worthy of this spot. His performance the first two years of school have been lacking and a lot depends on how well he plays this year. His power has yet to show up and if that continues this spring, his stock could fall.

    22. Los Angeles Dodgers: Michael Cederoth, RHP, San Diego State

    With high end velocity and excellent secondaries, Cederoth could be a dominant closer or even make a run at being a front end starter. Even if you aim low, he'll be an asset.

    23. Detroit Tigers: Nick Burdi, RHP, Louisville

    Burdi has a high effort delivery and is a reliever all the way but has a low 80's knockout slider and a fastball that hits triple digits. He could be the closer in Detroit in 2016.

    24. Pittsburgh Pirates: Chris Ellis, RHP, Ole Miss

    I haven't seen much of Ellis but he broke out on the Cape last summer. He has a solid FB, good slider and a starters build. The Pirates can never have enough pitching.

    25. Oakland Athletics: Michael Conforto, OF, Oregon State

    Conforto has a big bat. He is a good hitter, has big power and that's it. He doesn't profile defensively, so he's likely a 1B but when you have a bat, you'll have a shot.

    26. Atlanta Braves: Luke Weaver, RHP, Florida State University

    He's a polished mid-rotation starter with an above average fastball and average secondaries.

    27. Boston Red Sox: Joey Pankake, 3B, South Carolina

    Pankake doesn't have any eye popping abilities but is a solid average player across the board. He has a good bat, shows avearge power and is a defensive asset at the hot corner after moving there from short stop.

    28. St. Louis Cardinals: Cobi Johnson, RHP, Florida HS

    With a fastball that sits in the low 90's and can bump up to 95, he has a first round arm. He has a very good breaking ball, soild change and has big league ties. His Dad is a pitching coordinator for the Blue Jays.

    Compensation Round

    29. Seattle Mariners: Erick Fedde, RHP, UNLV

    Recent riser has sinking low 90's fastball and slider worthy of a high pick. Mid-rotation type.

    30. Kansas City Royals: Matt Chapman, 3B, Cal State Fullerton

    Power may not be profile power for a 3B but total package is excellent. Huge arm on the mound as well.

    31. Cincinnati Reds: Michael Chavis, 3B, Georgia HS

    Excellent hit and power potential make him interesting although his defenseive profile isn't a lock at 3B.

    32. Texas Rangers: Brad Zimmer, 3B, San Francisco

    Great athlete looks the part. May be a RF and power needs to improve. Solid skills but nothing elite.

    33. Cleveland Indians: Jakson Reetz, C, Nebraska HS

    Versatile player could likely play anywhere on the field. None of his tools stand out but all are solid average or better.

    34. Atlanta Braves: Mac Marshall, LHP, Georgia HS

    Up and down performances keep him here. With consistency, he could be a top 10-15 pick. Big fastball, ridiculous slider at times.

    35. Boston Red Sox: Monte Harrison, OF, Missouri HS

    Great athlete. High level football recruit. The only high end FB/BB talent this year. Potential for Plus skills across the board.

    36. Boston Red Sox: Scott Blewett, RHP, California HS

    Big righty with low 90's fastball and inconsistent breaking ball screams projection. Could go much higher with good spring.

    37. St. Louis Cardinals: Dylan Cease, RHP, Georgia HS

    His fastball can reach 97 but his secondaries lag behind. Needs to improve command and stay on top of pitches. Could go much higher. Boom or Bust candidate.

    Re: This year's MLB Draft

    Is Medeiros above 19 or below 37 with them? 36 I'm taking Medeiros. Best slider in the Draft.

    I can see teams going all out for Pitching, some good Postional Potential falling to Sox, if they go in that direction. 

    Kel Johnson? Sox need to look for Power. 2nd round Wow. Teams are starting to keep an eye on thier 2nd rounders now.

    Re: This year's MLB Draft

    Is Medeiros above 19 or below 37 with them? 36 I'm taking Medeiros. Best slider in the Draft.

     

    They have Medeiros listed after #43:

    1-18:

    1. Houston Astros: Carlos Rodon, LHP, N.C. State

    Rodon is still the consensus #1 overall pick but this isn't a slam dunk. There is a non-zero chance that someone else goes 1st overall but it is pretty close to 0%.

    2. Miami Marlins: Jeff Hoffman, RHP, East Carolina U.

    Hoffman has top of the draft stuff but results have lagged behind his first two collegiate seasons. The stuff is that of a top of the rotation arm though and will be drafted as such. It's hard to see the top two picks not being these two at this point but a lot can change in a few months.

    3. Chicago White Sox: Jacob Gatewood, SS, California HS

    The White Sox love power hitters and big bodied players. Gatewood is both. He would fit well in this system and would be the top prospect in the system after Erik Johnson graduates.

    4. Chicago Cubs: Tyler Beede, RHP, Vanderbilt

    The Cubs have a ton of offense on the way. Beede would slot in a top of the rotation arm, potentially. Command needs to stay on but fastball and breaking ball are MLB pitches now, as long as he is controlling them.

    5. Minnesota Twins: Tyler Kolek, RHP, Texas HS

    The Twins have need for immediate impact and upside. While a player closer to the majors may make more sense, Kolek may have the highest ceiling of any arm in the draft and could be one of the quickest to the majors out of high school.

    6. Seattle Mariners: Trea Turner, SS, N.C. State

    The Mariners have quite a bit of depth up the middle but how can you pass on a solid defensive up the middle player with an average bat and game changing speed.

    7. Philadelphia Phillies: Nick Gordon, SS, Florida HS

    The last winning core in Philly was led by two up the middle stars in Rollins and Utley. Crawford and Gordon could be another core to build around. Physicallity has improved this spring. Great all around player.

    8. Colorado Rockies: Alex Jackson, C/3B/OF, California HS

    I think Jackson could go as high as number two. His power is arguably the best in the draft but his defensive home is a question. In Colorado, RF would be difficult because of Jackson's growth potential but the bat could be outstanding.

    9. Toronto Blue Jays: Brady Aiken, LHP, California

    As a lefty who has more polish than tools, but no shortage of the latter. Aiken has excellent current stuff and projects more. He could be a front of the rotation type in time.

    10. New York Mets: Touki Toussaint, RHP, Florida HS

    Crazy potential and elite stuff make this reasonable. The lack of polish and risk involved makes this risky but the Mets have had excellent luck drafting and acquiring arms. Touki could add to that stable of talent.

    11. Toronto Blue Jays: Michael Gettys, OF, Georgia HS

    Gettys is tooled up. He has elite bat speed, high end running speed, a huge arm and good range make him a good defender. He can throw well enough he would be looked at as a top three round pitcher if he couldn't hit at all. The Jays like athletes. Gettys is arguably the best in this years draft.

    12. Milwaukee Brewers: Grant Holmes, RHP, South Carolina HS

    Holmes is a physcial righty with upper 90's velocity and a knockout breaking ball. There is a chance he ends up at the back of the bullpen but he could be a front end starter if everything works out.

    13. San Diego Padres: Sean Newcomb, LHP, Hartford U.

    After really coming on last summer, Newcomb sits 91-93 and can hit 95. He has flashed an impressive slider and with that combo, I would be shocked if he isn't taken in the top 15 picks barring injury.

    14. San Francisco Giants: Sean Reid-Foley, RHP, Florida HS

    Foley has had some impressive performances at big events and impressed some people in high places. If he continues to improve, he could get picked early in the draft. The Giants seem to hit on pitchers when they roll the dice. Foley may be next.

    15. Los Angeles Angels: Max Pentecost, C, Kennesaw State

    Pentecost is the best collegiate catcher available. His good defensively and makes good contact. He takes good at bats and has a solid approach. He won't hit for a lot of over the fence power but has solid gap-to-gap power. The Angels could use a solid prospect who will help the big league team. While not being a high ceiling player, he is a pretty sure bet.

    16. Arizona Diamondbacks: Brandon Finnegan, LHP, Texas Christian U.

    Finnegan has one of the most electric arms in the draft. High end velocity and improving secondaries, Finnegan should be a lock for the first round. His command has improved and he would add to the depth the D'Backs pitching ranks.

    17. Kansas City Royals: Braxton Davidson, 1B, North Carolina HS

    As one of the most polished prep bats and possesing plus hitting ability, power and approach, Davidson could be a middle of the order bat. While his skills may translate to LF/RF, he's likely a 1B and will follow up behind Eric Hosmer. By the time Hosmer is hitting free agency, Davidson may be close to taking over if his price tag is too high.

    18. Washington Nationals: Luis Ortiz, RHP, California HS

     

    Ortiz has really come on in the last two years. He lost a lot of weight and gained velocity. His weight will always need to be watched but his fastball and slider are excellent pitches. His slider can damn near be unhittable at times. Ortiz could be the best pitcher in this draft in three years. He has that kind of potential. The Nats like impact and Ortiz could be an impact arm.

    ....

    Competitive Balance Round

    38. Colorado Rockies: A.J. Reed, 1B, Kentucky

    He's also a LHP with fringe average stuff but the power is 70+. In game usable power, not just BP. Could be a star in the light air.

    39. Miami Marlins: Jack Flaherty, SS, California HS

    Could go much higher but my personal preference weighs in here. His tools are solid but nothing stands out and has looked flat every time I have seen him. If a team sees him good, he could go in the teens.

    40. Houston Astros: Justus Sheffield, LHP, Tennessee HS

    This shows the depth of this draft. He could go in the teens as well. Good stuff, solid projection, everything you look for in a lefty. There is a lot of college talent that is more proven and could cause him and other preps to slide.

    41. Cleveland Indians: Marcus Wilson, OF, California HS

    One of the most projectable players in the draft. The long, lean athletic frame looks like that of a future impact player. It'll take some time but he could be a profile RF.

    42. Miami Marlins: Taylor Sparks, 3B, UC-Irvine

    May need to move to RF but solid skills across the board would make him a solid pick here.

    43. Kansas City Royals: Grayson Greiner, C, South Carolina

    Leader at the plate and behind the dish. One of the best catcher arms around. Keeps improving and working. Big, tall player may have to move from behind the dish due to size but the bat is good enough to still take him here.

    44. Milwaukee Brewers: Derek Hill, OF, California HS

    Polished atheltic center fielder. One of the few in this class that I know can stick there. Bat is good but power is gap-to-gap right now. Safe high school pick with remaining potential.

     

    Others that were considered:

    Kodi Medeiros, Greg Deichmann, Chase Vallot, J.D. Davis, Karsten Whitson, Keaton McKinney, Tiquan Forbes, Kyle Freeland, Alex Verdugo, Matt Imhof, Dan Mengden, Dylan Davis, Cam Varga, Aramis Garcia, Zach Lemond, Forrest Wall, Greg Allen, Brandon Downes, Alex Blandino.

     

     

    I can see teams going all out for Pitching, some good Postional Potential falling to Sox, if they go in that direction. 

    The second round begins at #43 or 44, so that is pretty late even for a strong and deep draft. I'm not sure what our second round choice will be, but my guess is about #70 or so.



    Kel Johnson? Sox need to look for Power. 2nd round Wow. Teams are starting to keep an eye on thier 2nd rounders now.

    Yes, and a lot will change between now and then. There will be some surpise picks and some surprise drops by players looked on highly at this time.

    June 5-7th is not that far away!

    Forbes very intresting Prospect, doesn't have to stay at SS, with his size, he could be moved over to another position, to learn in the Minors. Like to see him convert to 1st base.
    Nice swing, and great eye at the plate.  Very discipline hitter, rare for High School.

    Drew signs with Tigers would be beautiful, Sox get Comp Pick, and move up 1 spot in Draft, in round 1. And you eliminate a legit Play-off team, a 1st rounder.

    From FanGraphs:

    12. Eugenio Suarez, SS: Suarez projects to develop into a solid utility player capable of playing second base and shortstop — and possibly third base. His approach at the plate is inconsistent — as are his results. The Venezuela native strikes out too much for someone with below-average power. His above-average play in the infield could allow him to perform as a second-division starter — at least for a few seasons.

    Anybody think Tigers have a case of sending damaged goods to them? Read Farrell knew their was an issue with shin splints with Iggy.

    Who else do the have?

    Nada...

    From FanGraphs:

    12. Eugenio Suarez, SS: Suarez projects to develop into a solid utility player capable of playing second base and shortstop — and possibly third base. His approach at the plate is inconsistent — as are his results. The Venezuela native strikes out too much for someone with below-average power. His above-average play in the infield could allow him to perform as a second-division starter — at least for a few seasons.

    Oliver projects a 2014 WAR of 2.9 and ZiPS a WAR of 1.0:

    .230 hitter in Majors, from the Projections I read. How do you think he'll do in the Majors? He hit .256 in Double AA last year, big jump to the Majors.
    .950 Fielding % in his career in the Minors. Tigers should look at Drew. Last year he had a rehab in A+ played 24 games made 10 errors at SS, good luck with that.

    I'm getting the feeling Morales will sign, but Drew will be the only QO free agent to wait till June.

    Bummer.

    Moon, I looked up the top 300 Prospects in your site, they have Johnson at 65, and my sleeper Cosart at 107. Very deep draft. Thanks. Pretty sure Sox pick is 66th in 2nd round.

    Medeiros is ranked 20th.

    Re: This year's MLB Draft

    I keep reading Marlins are awarded 36th pick, for Compensation for not signing Matt Krook, and they cannot go any lower. since he was picked at 35th, and not signed. Nobody else seeing this?
