Lincoln Hamilton at Project Prospect posted his mock draft yesterday, openly acknowledging that these things are a “special sort of useless.” He has the Yanks taking southpaw starter Rex Brothers out of Limpscomb, noting that his electric arm fits in with some of the Yanks recent high draftees like Joba Chamberlain, Andrew Brackman and Gerrit Cole. I’m not a big Brothers fan because he lacks command and a useable third pitch, something typical of high school kids, not college vets. Lincoln has the Rays taking righty Eric Arnett out of Indiana one pick after the Yanks. I would much prefer him because he’s much more refined than Limpscomb while still offering premium stuff.
