    I'd be really excited if they went for one of the elite-armed injury cases like Hankins, Denaburg, or Cecconi.

    No. 23 New York Yankees — Logan Gilbert, RHP, Stetson
    It’s still possible the Yankees could take Mike Vasil, a right-handed pitcher from Boston College (Mass.) High School, with the 23rd overall pick in the draft, but a prolonged injury kept him off the mound until just recently, which may cause New York to cool on the youngster.

    Instead, the Bronx Bombers could scoop up Logan Gilbert in the first round and allow him time in the minors to refine his secondary pitches to go along with his mid-to-upper-90s fastball.

    Looks like Vasil has told teams he won’t sign and is going to UVA.

    I'd like to have a pre draft agreement set with Hjelle and go over slot on the next pick.. So many arms to pick from. Unless someone really falls, that would be my choice.

    Daniel Lynch
    On the Cape and the first half of this spring, Lynch was a solid 3rd round prospect that pitched at 88-92 mph with mostly average stuff and above-average feel and command. In the last month or so, Lynch's velo has ticked up, and down the stretch he's been sitting 92-94, hitting 95 mph deep into starts with an assortment of offspeed pitches that all flash above-average. It's obvious from observing Lynch that he isn't a fan of the Virginia pitching style, its characteristic mechanics and reliance on breaking balls. Most scouts have viewed this as positive as they aren't a fan of it or UVA's overall track record with pitching (Hultzen, Kirby, Jones, etc.) either and like that Lynch knows how he wants to pitch. He throws a cutter, slider, curveball and changeup that all flash above-average, with his slider occasionally flashing plus. Lynch, like many college pitchers including Florida's Brady Singer, doesn't throw his changeup much but it shows enough promise that it could be an above-average pitch with greater use. The Yankees are among the teams bearing down on Lynch down the stretch and he'll likely find a home in the 20's.

    J.T Ginn

    Scouting grades: Fastball: 70 | Slider: 60 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50

    While Ginn finished second nationally among high schoolers with 16 homers last year -- only Angels first-rounder Jo Adell had more -- teams covet his right arm more than his bat. He has one of the best power arsenals in the high school ranks and a history of dominating on the showcase circuit and with Team USA. He has the stuff to go in the first round, though quibbles about his size and delivery may knock him down to the second.

    Ginn had the highest fastball velocity at USA Baseball's Tournament of Stars last summer at 94.6 mph, sat at 95-97 mph at the Under Armour All-America Game and has reached 99 mph this spring. His heater has late life and he can command it to both sides of the plate. If hitters try to sit on his fastball, they can look silly because he also has a wipeout slider in the mid-80s.

    Ginn also shows feel for a changeup with some running action, so he has enough pitches to start. His listed height of 6-foot-2 may be charitable and he works with considerable effort, leading to questions about whether his future may be in the bullpen, though his athleticism helps him repeat his delivery and throw strikes. He's old for his Draft class and will be eligible as a 21-year-old sophomore in 2020 should he attend Mississippi State.

    Ginn seems to be built more like a hitter than like a pitcher at this point.

    Re: 2018 MLB Draft

    I've loved the reports on Lavigne over the past few weeks, and was thinking he was a perfect Yankee target, except for the fact that he's pretty much the opposite of what Oppenheimer & Co. have historically valued as one of their main draft tenets: up the middle athleticism on the defensive spectrum.

    One NL scouting director suggested a Monday draft surprise--the Mets take Waukeshaw, Wisc. OF Jarred Kelenic, the Yankees take Bedford, N.H. 1B slugger Grant Lavigne

    I think we might go bats over arms in the first 10 rounds.

    Recent history suggests the opposite. Pitching in the draft; position players in IFA.

    Re: 2018 MLB Draft

    IMO, the Yankees with their first round pick will select the highest person still on their draft board regardless of position, unless, they see another opportunity as last year's draft with Schmidt and Sauer.

    I know. This year might just be a little different. Last year's monster IFA class is in the process of turning 17. And the path for drafted pitchers is getting super tight.

    It may once again turn out to be pitcher heavy, but that will be because all their bats are getting popped before and between their picks

    Pitchers
    Ryan Weathers
    LHP, Age: 18, Height: 6’2”, Weight: 210 lbs
    School: Loretto (Tennessee) HS, Year: Senior, Commitment: Vanderbilt
    MLB Rank: 13
    Scouting Grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 55 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 55 | Overall: 55
    Video: MLB.com

    Ryan is the son of former Yankee David Weathers. We all remember David’s contribution to the Yankees 1996 World Series championship pitching out of the bullpen. Scouts predict that Ryan will be even better. He features three pitches, with a fastball that currently tops out at 95 MPH. Ryan set a Tennessee high school tournament record with 28 strikeouts, including 12 while pitching a shutout in the championship game.

    Shane McClanahan
    LHP, Age: 21, Height: 6’1” Weight: 173 lbs
    School: South Florida, Year: RS Sophomore, Previously drafted: 2015, 26th (779) - NYM
    MLB Rank: 14
    Scouting Grades: Fastball: 70 | Slider: 50 | Changeup: 60 | Control: 45 | Overall: 55
    Video: MLB.com


    Tommy John surgery erased his freshman year, but he came back and performed well as his team’s Saturday starter. His fastball usually tops 97 MPH, and he consistently hits triple digits.

    Cole Wilcox
    RHP, Age: 18, Height: 6’5”, Weight: 220 lbs
    School: Heritage (Ga.) HS, Year: Senior, Commitment: Georgia
    MLB Rank: 19
    Scouting Grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 60 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50
    Video: MLB.com

    Wilcox pitched on the Team USA staff that won a gold medal at the 18-and-under World Cup last September. He reaches 98 with his sinker, and he has already developed an effective change. He is one of the most coveted high school pitchers in this year’s draft.

    Kumar Rocker
    RHP, Age: 18, Height: 6’5”, Weight: 250 lbs
    School: North Oconee (Ga.) HS, Year: Senior, Commitment: Vanderbilt
    MLB Rank: 23
    Scouting Grades: Fastball: 70 | Slider: 60 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50
    Video: MLB.com

    Rocker opened last summer as the consensus top high school pitching prospect before getting passed by fellow Georgia hurler Ethan Hankins. Rocker’s fastball reaches 98 MPH.

    Position Players
    Nolan Gorman
    3B, Age: 18, Bats: L, Throws: R, Height: 6’1”, Weight: 210 lbs
    School: O’Connor (Ariz.) HS, Year: Senior, Commitment: Arizona
    MLB Rank: 12
    Scouting Grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 60 | Run: 40 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 55
    Video: MLB.com

    Gorman captured homer titles at the MLB All-Star Game High School Home Run Derby in Miami and at the Under Armour All-American Game at Wrigley Field in Chicago. A left-handed power-hitting third baseman playing for the Yankees? Graig Nettles, anyone?

    Triston Casas
    1B, Age: 18, Bats: L, Throws: R, Height: 6’4”, Weight: 238 lbs
    School: American Heritage (Fla.) School, Year: Senior, Commitment: Miami
    MLB Rank: 20
    Scouting Grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 40 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 50
    Video: MLB.com

    Casas earned MVP honors in the World Baseball Softball Confederation U-18 Baseball World Cup for helping Team USA win a gold medal by leading the tournament in home runs and RBI. A lefty home run hitter playing 81 games a year at first base in Yankee Stadium? Sign me up.

    Trevor Larnach
    OF, Age: 21, Bats: L, Throws: R, Height: 6’4”, Weight: 205 lbs
    School: Oregon State, Year: Junior, Previously drafted: 2015, 40th (1197) - SD
    MLB Rank: 26
    Scouting Grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 55 | Run: 40 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50 | Overall: 50
    Video: MLB.com

    Larnach is known as a patient hitter who consistently makes hard contact. He can play either corner outfield position.

    Noah Naylor
    C, Age: 18, Bats: L, Throws: R, Height: 6’1”, Weight: 195 lbs
    School: St. Joan of Arc (Ont.) HS, Year: Senior, Commitment: Texas A&M
    MLB Rank: 27
    Scouting Grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 55 | Run: 40 | Arm: 55 | Field: 45 | Overall: 50
    Video: MLB.com

    Noah is the younger brother of Padres prospect Josh Naylor. He performed well in the High School Home Run Derby at Marlins Park. A left-handed hitting catcher to complement Gary Sanchez, perhaps
