Jim Callis of Baseball America posted his second mock draft late yesterday, and he now has the Pirates taking Rice 3B Anthony Rendon first overall. Last time he had them taking UCLA RHP Gerrit Cole. You can see the list of picks for free, but you’ll need a subscription to see Callis’ analysis. The Yankees don’t have a fist round pick, so they’re not included in the mock draft. Lame. Anyway, these things are always good because the picks are informed projections, not just guesswork. Gives you a good idea of what the teams are looking at and where each player’s stock is.
