As clubs narrow their draft boards over the next seven weeks most, perhaps aside from the Houston Astros -- the owners of the top overall selection -- don't know which name they will announce on draft day. Some, however, know who they won't be taking.

"At this point, at least for us, we have a group we'd like to consider strongly," said an American League scouting director. "We like a lot of players, but since we don't pick 1-1, we have to wait and see. It is safe to say there are some we like that we are pretty sure are off our board at this stage."
