- Tanner Scheppers was flirting with triple digits in his last start over the weekend.
- Jonathan Mayo tweets that Jacob Turner, Shelby Miller and Mike Leake look like the Tigers’ targets at #9.
- Klaw says the Braves are deciding between Alex White and Mike Minor at #7. In other news, I’m deciding between filet mignon and McDonalds for dinner. The Reds will take the Braves’ sloppy seconds one pick later.
