KLaw’s Draft Buzz


Keith Law has a new post up at the Worldwide Leader with the latest draft goings-on (sorry, this one falls behind the Insider wall). Amongst other things, Law notes how much worse prep shortstop Harold Martinez looks this year compared to last, as well as the the skepticism surrounding the stress fracture in Fresno State RHP Tanner Scheppers’ shoulder (the only other player I can remember suffering a stress fracture from supposedly doing nothing other than pitching is Bobby Jenks, who had one in his elbow back in his days with the Halos). I know plenty of Yankee fans are hoping that Eric Hosmer falls into their lap at #28 overall, but the Marlins are said to love guy. Thankfully ownership hasn’t given the FO the green light to go over slot … yet.

    Besides, the Fish already spent their allowance on Han-Ram

    Hosmer probably goes to the Royals.

      People forget that they’re a small market team, and already have invested a lot in Boras clients Hochevar and Moustakas, though, on the flip side, that bodes well for negotiations with Hosmer.

      I did an analysis of where Hosmer could go here: http://yankeesfuture.wordpress.....the-yanks/

    Um…Didn’t Hughes suffer a stress fracture from nothing but pitching?

    • Seven Costanza

      not in the SHOULDER.

    • Mike A.

      Yeah I’m sorry, I should have specified that I meant a stress fracture in some part of the throwing arm.

        Speaking of shoulders, Chase Wright had to get an MRI on his.

        Wait…you’re not the Mike A that writes the Thunder blog, are you? If you are…you already know that :-)

    I’m sorry but I’m just more concerned over the fact that Jesus Montero left early in last night’s game and did not start in today’s game.

    My bad

    It amazes me when some of these guys get hurt there Jr or Sr season and it’s a normal run of the mill injury that once healed won’t have any impact on there future but having a stress fracture in one’s shoulder is not a good thing and most likely Tanner Scheppers won’t ever be the same.

    The only logical reason for him to have a stress fracture in his shoulder is that it’s being caused by horrible mechanics and thats where the energy of the pressure is escaping which in turn is causing the stress fracture.
