2012 MLB Mock draft 4.0
Consensus has Astros taking Appel No. 1; Buxton goes No. 2 to Twins
This is it sort of, since I'll update this over the course of the day on Monday if any new information emerges. As always, everything here is based on information gleaned from industry sources. As of about 1:30 a.m. ET, nothing was locked in, unlike previous years when we were at least certain of the top overall pick, and sometimes a pick or two beyond that.
I'll be chatting Monday at 3 p.m. ET and will be blogging and tweeting during the draft itself Monday night.
There's no deal in place, and it's still possible the Astros will consider another option like Byron Buxton, but the consensus has them taking Appel, who has roots in Houston and is a safe pick with lots of upside. Carlos Correa would be the third option.
