2011 Draft: Baseball America’s Mock Draft v3.0

By

Jim Callis posted his third mock draft yesterday, and you can see all the picks for free right here. You’ll need a subscription to see the analysis though. This came out before we learned that the Pirates are going to take UCLA RHP Gerrit Cole first overall, so Callis has them taking Virginia LHP Danny Hultzen. He went with Cole going in the top spot in v1.0 and Rice 3B Anthony Rendon in v2.0. A number of big money high schoolers are falling to the end of the first round in Callis’ mock draft, including RHP Dillon Howard (#25), LHP Daniel Norris (#28), RHP Joe Ross (#29), and C Blake Swihart (#33). Hopefully at least one of those guys makes it to the Yankees at #51, which is pretty much the best they can do right now.

    i’m finding it harder and harder to believe a lot of these ‘sexy names’ will be available for the yankees considering how many teams pick multiple times before the yanks pick once. let’s hope they have a trick up their sleeves this time around.
