I'm very surprised at how little the draft has been discussed here at AN. It starts tonight and I haven't seen any posts dedicated to it yet, so I thought I'd put together an ad hoc thread.
I don't have any knowledge of most of these players so I don't have much analysis to provide. I'm hoping that people who know more about the amateur players can chime in.
Keith Law came out with his last mock draft. His guess is that the A's with take George Springer. He seems like a Michael Choice type of pick... tons of tools, raw athleticism, and very high upside. Problems with his mechanics and contact issues are the drawbacks - like with Choice.
Fangraphs have the A's taking Joe Ross - Tyson's brother.
Jim Callis at Baseball America has the A's taking Springer.
I assume there will be an official open thread for the draft. I just wanted to get the speculation going early.
