In his second mock draft, MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo has the Astros taking Oklahoma RHP Jonathan Gray with the first overall pick in next week’s draft. Stanford RHP Mark Appel and San Diego 3B Kris Bryant fall into place and go second and third to the Cubs and Rockies, respectively.
Mayo projects the Yankees to take Stanford OF Austin Wilson (26th), New Jersey HS LHP Rob Kaminsky (32nd), and Oklahoma HS C Jon Denney (33rd) with their three first round picks. The Yankees have been connected to all three guys in recent weeks, and you can click the links for my write-ups. I don’t love Wilson, but that would be a pretty great haul in the first round. Three real high upside guys including a sorely needed left-hander.
