Baseball America published their first mock draft yesterday and it is free for all. You don’t need a subscription to read it. They have the Astros taking NC State LHP Carlos Rodon first overall despite his relatively disappointing spring. San Diego HS LHP Brady Aiken is the consensus top prospect in the draft right now, and Baseball America has him going to the White Sox third overall.
The Yankees don’t pick until the second round (55th overall) following their offseason spending spree, so they are not included in the mock draft. That stinks. It’s still worth reading because it gives you an idea of which players are being connected to which teams, and who could be left over for the Yankees when their pick does come up. Chances are they have their fingers crossed a top talent falls into their lap for whatever reason.
