1. DETROIT TIGERS…RHP Casey Mize, Auburn. Widely considered the favorite for the top overall pick for the last several weeks, Mize pitched to a 3.07 ERA in the regular season, striking out 140 in 102 ⅔ innings while only walking 10. Mize sits low-to-mid 90s with his heater with what is said to be an excellent splitter and plus slider. His control is his calling card, though.
  2. SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS…C Joey Bart, Georgia Tech. The consensus top catcher in the draft class, Bart is an outstanding defender and Georgia Tech even lets him call his own games, a rarity these days. He can swing it, too. In the 2018 regular season, Bart hit .359/.471/.632 with 12 doubles, 16 homers and 38 RBI in 57 games. Bart also has gotten to know Yellow Jackets alum Matt Wieters, who works out with the team in the offseason.
  3. PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES…3B Alec Bohm, Wichita State. Bohm will hit for average, and he’s got plenty of right-handed pop without the strong swing-and-miss tendencies that usually come with that. He’s also got a good command of the strike zone. On the downside, he’s not likely to stick at third base for long.
  4. CHICAGO WHITESOX…2B Nick Madrigal, Oregon State.As a sophomore, Madrigal was the Pac-12 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year. He entered this season with a broken hand, but he came back with a vengeance, hitting .395/.459/.563 with six doubles, four triples and two homers in 29 games. He was also nine for nine in stolen bases and didn’t commit a single error.
  5. CINCINNATI REDS…3B Jonathan India, Florida.India is known to be a standout defender at third base, to the point that many scouting types believe he could hold his own at shortstop. The 6-foot-1 junior this season for the Gators hit .362/.502/.723(!) with 11 doubles, three triples, 17 homers, 42 RBI, 57 runs and 11 steals in 57 regular-season games.
  6. NEW YORK METS…OF Jarred Kelenic, Waukesha West HS (Wisconsin).A 6-foot-1 lefty, Kelenic is considered a stellar overall player, seeing marks as high as 60 with power, defense, speed and arm. Many like his power to increase as he ages, too, so he likely profiles as a right fielder. He’s signed with the University of Louisville, but that isn’t expected to be an obstacle, as most reports indicate he’s amenable to skipping college ball.
  7. SAN DIEGO PADRES…LHP Ryan Weathers, Loretto HS (Tennessee).Here’s the son of former major-league hurler David Weathers. The younger Weathers has a fastball in the low- to mid-90s with excellent life, and he also has a curve and changeup that project as MLB-caliber offerings. He’s committed to Vanderbilt, where he could play both ways thanks to his hitting and general athleticism.
  8. ATLANTA BRAVES…RHP Carter Stewart, Eau Gallie HS (Florida).A lanky righty, Stewart is 6-foot-6 and 200 pounds. He’s a power righty, too, hitting high-90s with his fastball and is said to have an outstanding curveball, too. He’s reportedly worked on a change in bullpens, but he mows down high school hitters with such ease on his first two pitches he doesn’t really use it in games.
  9. OAKLAND A’S…OF Kyler Murray, Oklahoma.Murray has split his time between baseball and football the last few years, and last season he backed up quarterback Baker Mayfield, the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft. He’s an ultra-athletic right-handed hitter with contact and power potential, and he’s a very good defensive outfielder as well. As expected with a two-spot guy, he’s quite raw and needs to turn his natural gifts into baseball skills. Murray is expected to play football in the fall before committing to baseball full-time.
  10. PITTSBURGH PIRATES…OF Travis Swaggerty, South Alabama.A 5-foot-11 lefty, Swaggerty has the speed and arm to handle center field at the big-league level. This season, he hit .296/.455/.526 with 10 doubles, 13 home runs and 38 RBI. He also stole nine bases in 14 attempts. Word is he’d make a fine leadoff man, and, sure enough, he took 54 walks in 57 games against 38 strikeouts.
  11. BALTIMORE ORIOLES…RHP Grayson Rodriguez, Central Heights HS (Texas).A well-built right-hander with a commitment to Texas A&M, Rodriguez’s fastball has touched the upper-90s. The heater is his breadwinner, though he does have a pair of breaking balls. He’ll need to further develop his changeup and command as a professional, but there’s a lot to like here.
  12. TORONTO BLUEJAYS…SS Jordan Groshans, Magnolia HS (Texas).Groshans is a right-handed hitter with a history of punishing elite competition in showcase events. He has a sound approach and is expected to grow into power in the coming years. Groshans, who is committed to Kansas, is a good athlete with a strong arm who profiles best at third base long-term.
  13. FLORIDA MARLINS…OF Connor Scott, Plant HS (Florida). Scott’s got a plus hit tool and some of the best speed in the 2018 draft. That speed helps make him a plus defensive center fielder. He’s got room to add muscle to his 6-4 frame, so the power could come later. Scott is also a pitcher, albeit without the ceiling he has as a position player. He’s committed to Florida.
  14. SEATTLE MARINERS…RHP Logan Gilbert, Stetson.Gilbert will inevitably receive comparison to Jacob deGrom due to his affiliation with Stetson and his long hair. While it’s unlikely he becomes as good as deGrom, he does have the chance to build a respectable career. Gilbert does most of his work with a low-90s fastball. He complements his heat with a pair of quality secondary offerings.
  15. TEXAS RANGERS…RHP Cole Winn, Orange Lutheran HS (California). Even though he’s a prep arm, Winn already has three plus pitches in his arsenal, fronted by a devastating fastball-slider combo. While the changeup isn’t as developed, it’s more refined than you’d think given how little he’s had to use it. His solid build, repeatable mechanics, and “easy gas” suggest he has a shot to stay healthy.
  16. TAMPA BAY RAYS…LHP Matthew Liberatore, Mountain Ridge HS (Arizona).Liberatore is a 6-foot-5 left-hander. He sits in the low-90s with his fastball and backs that up with an old-school, “12-to-6” curveball. He also mixes in on occasion a quality changeup. Most of the scouting reports available peg Liberatore’s upside as a number two or even number three starter.
  17. LA ANGELS…OF Jordyn Adams, Green Hope HS (North Carolina).Adams is a two-sport star who is scheduled to play baseball and football (wide receiver) at the University of North Carolina. Predictably, he’s an explosive athlete. His elite speed should allow him to remain in center field and develop into a menace on the basepaths. There is some belief he could come into average power with time, making him a well-rounded offensive threat.
  18. KANSAS CITY ROYALS…RHP Brady Singer, Florida.Singer was drafted in the second round out of high school in 2015, but chose to play in the SEC instead. He hasn’t hurt his stock. In 13 regular-season starts, Singer was 10-1 with a 2.25 ERA and 92 strikeouts in 88 innings. The 6-foot-5 right-hander sits near the mid-90s with a good slider and decent enough change.
  19. LOUIS CARDINALS…3B Nolan Gorman, O’Connor HS (Arizona).While the lefty-swinging Gorman strikes out a bit, he has some of the best raw power in this draft class. His elite bat speed should transfer to the pros. He’s a slow runner and may not be able to remain at third base long-term, but the power potential is special. He’s committed to the University of Arizona.
  20. MINNESOTA TWINS…OF Trevor Larnach, Oregon State.Oregon State has a history of producing big-league outfielders, and Larnach will look to follow in the footsteps of Jacoby Ellsbury and Michael Conforto. He’s a left-handed with good plate discipline and an extreme opposite field approach. This spring he’s discovered his power stroke, which pushed him into the first round. Larnach will likely slide over to left field in pro ball because his speed and range leave something to be desired in center.
  21. MILWAUKEE BREWERS…SS Brice Turang, Santiago HS (California).Going into the draft season, Turang was a potential No. 1 overall pick candidate and the top high school position player in the draft class. An uneven spring has caused his stock to tumble, however. At his best, Turang sprays line drives from foul pole to foul pole from the left side of the plate, and he’s a strong defender with a good chance to remain at shortstop long-term. His upside exceeds his draft slot. Turang is committed to Louisiana State.
  22. COLORADO ROCKIES…LHP Ryan Rolison, Ole Miss.Rolison is a draft-eligible sophomore, so he may not be an easy signing. He boasts a deep repertoire, good velocity by lefty standards, and a potent fastball-curveball combo. He’s also strong and athletic on the mound, which may mean he has some projection left. Rolison does struggle with his control on occasion, but that’s not unusual for hard-throwing young left-handers
  23. NY YANKEES…C Anthony Seigler, Cartersville HS (Georgia). Seigler is a switch-hitter and switch-thrower who has performed well against elite competition in showcase events. He knows the zone and projects as a high on-base hitter with good contact rates. Behind the plate, he’s a good receiver with a strong arm, and he’s a good enough athlete and runner that he’s capable of playing other infield positions.
  24. CHICAGO CUBS…SS Nico Hoerner, Stanford.Hoerner has never not hit, and he has a long track record of success against top competition. He has an excellent approach and developing power, and he’s a good enough defender to handle shortstop now. There is some thought he will move to second base down the road.
  25. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS…SS Matt McLain, Beckman HS (California).Despite being listed at 5-foot-10 and 175 lbs., McLain has a great swing and the ability to impact the ball. It’s unclear whether he will remain at shortstop long-term, but his arm and work ethic give him a chance to handle any position defensively. McLain is committed to UCLA.
  26. BOSTON RED SOX…3B Triston Casas, American Heritage School (Florida). Casas is a third baseman presently, but it’s highly likely he’ll be shifted to first as a pro. He’s got big power, but he’s also got some issues making contact. Scouts are mixed on how well that power will translate, but the potential for big numbers is there. He’s committed to Miami.
  27. WASHINGTON NATIONALS…RHP Mason Denaburg, Merritt Island HS (Florida).A biceps issue this spring and the fact Denaburg split his time between pitching and hitting, and baseball and football, complicated his draft stock. The consensus is his long-term future is on the mound, where he’ll sit in the mid-90s and show an out-pitch breaking ball. Denaburg’s changeup is promising as well. He’s committed to Florida and could get a chance to be a two-way player there.
  28. HOUSTON ASTROS…OF Seth Beer, Clemson.Beer has been a standout college hitter since the day he set foot on campus. He’s a left-handed hitter with power and a great approach. The only question is his position. Beer is not a good defender in the outfield and he may settle in as a first baseman or even a DH.
  29. CLEVELAND INDIANS…C Noah Naylor, St. Joan of Arc HS (Ontario).Noah’s older brother Josh was a first round pick in 2015, though they are different players. Josh is power-hitting first baseman. Noah is a very good athlete known more for his approach and raw hitting ability, though he can hit the ball out of the park as well. He’s rough around the edges behind the plate but has the athleticism and work ethic to make it work at the position.
  30. LA DODGERS…RHP J.T. Ginn, Brandon HS (Mississippi).Ginn has one of the best two-pitch combinations in the draft class with his mid-to-upper-90s heater. He also has a promising slider. Ginn is one of the oldest high schoolers in the draft class at 19, and there’s some thought his high-effort delivery points to a future in the bullpen.
