2013 Draft: Keith Law’s Mock Draft v4.0

By

In his latest mock draft (subs. req’d), Keith Law has Stanford LHP Mark Appel going to the Astros first overall. He says they’re trying to nail down his price tag leading up to the draft tonight, but could still wind up taking another player and spreading any savings around. Oklahoma RHP Jonathan Gray goes to the Cubs with the second pick, San Diego 3B Kris Bryant to the Rockies with the third pick.

Law has the Yankees selecting Notre Dame 3B Eric Jagielo (#26), Texas HS OF Billy McKinney (#32), and California HS LHP Ian Clarkin (#33) with their three first rounders. Click the links for my write-up of each player. Law says New York is expected to grab a college player with their first pick, with Jagielo ahead of Stanford OF Austin Wilson on their board. Arizona SS Dustin Peterson, Mississippi JuCo LHP Cody Reed, and UC Irvine RHP Andrew Thurman are mentioned as possibilities at various spots as well.

Other Mock Drafts: Baseball America (v1.0, v2.0, v3.0, v4.0) Keith Law (v1.0, v2.0, v3.0), and MLB.com (v1.0, v2.0).

    Law has Kaminsky going to the A’s before the Yankees, which is curious. I’m wondering if the Yanks are hellbent on getting a starting LHP…if Kaminsky goes before them, then they go Clarkin. I’ve seen Clarkin play a few times in San Diego. The kid is the real deal. My family moved from the East Coast to San Diego and I went to a rival high school of Madison…got to watch a bunch of games and there was always a lot of buzz on this kid.

    Fingers crossed they get one of Clarkin or Serrano

    David P., our intrepid Far East scout (@yankeesource), throws out Matt Krook, the high school lefty from Northern Cali, as a possible pick for the Yankees. Interesting size, arm and stuff (elite curveball to go with 90-94 FB).

    Just curious: How often are these mock drafts right when it comes to the Yanks? It sure seems like the Yanks shock everyone with their picks each year.

      From memory the only ones that they have gotten right in the last five years have been Gerrit Cole and Slade Heathcot

      That said, no one saw Bichette or Culver going in the first or even second round.

    I’d be happy with Rob Kaminsky (LHP) , Kyle Serrano RHP, Oscar Mercado, SS

    Sounds like the Yankees match pretty well with the pundits’ boards, if the ‘Yankees are in on’ reports are true. Not sold on Jagielo (sp?), would be fine with 3 HS arms.
