How far could Anthony Rendon drop?

It's late enough in the season to believe that any poor performances from here on out could hurt a prospect's draft stock. With that said, it wasn't a good weekend for Texas right-hander Taylor Jungmann, Rice's Anthony Rendon or Oregon's Tyler Anderson.
Rendon finished the weekend 1-for-13 with two walks, dropping to .333/.535/.532 for the season, a solid yet unremarkable line for the player that started the campaign as the No. 1 overall talent. I wrote in March that if Rendon's injury concerns didn't subside and his performance pick up that it's not out of the question that the pre-season player of the year in college baseball could slip down to the Chicago Cubs at No. 9.
