2013 MLB Mock Draft Version 2.0

2013 MLB Mock Draft, Version 2.0 While the top 3 picks seem pretty straight forward, I could be wrong. The top 20 picks or so seem to be the top 20 players, even though the order is jumbled, most of them will go early. The rest of the draft is really hard to predict. It's really rolling dice but I did what I thought made sense for each team. If I did this again as soon as this one was completed, it would be different, but that's the fun of this right now, right?

2013 MLB Draft: Players With Signability Questions

Every year there are a few guys that have strong college commitments. Last year, I posted a list of 29 players that I thought could be tough signs. 19 ended up on campus. Alford signed but didn't give up football, so I was kind of right there as well. I don't have as good of a feel with some this year so I've expanded the list. Listed is the percentage that I expect them to be on campus next year.

College Players Karsten Whitson, P, Florida 98% After shoulder surgery, it is likely Whitson returns to Florida for another chance to show his talent. Austin Wilson, OF, Stanford 5% This is a little outside the box. Wilson was out much of the year with an injury. He didn't get the chance to show if he could hit for power as well as average. If he doesn't get picked in the top 20, he won't get $2 million or more and that could mean he rolls the dice again. Pure speculation, but the crop of college bats may be as bad or worse next season.

2013 MLB Draft Board

This is not a list of the top 400 prospects based on a composite of scout or expert opinions or even current talent. This is just my ranking. This is my projection and how I see the players stacking up. There will still be some changes to this prior to and even during the draft based how the draft unfolds but this is what I would start with.
