Keith Law Mock Draft 2.0
The Marlins now pounce on NC State lefty Carlos Rodon at No. 2
The 2014 draft is now just nine days away, and most teams are starting their main pre-draft meetings today or in the next few days, which means team "pref lists" will start to become clearer between now and early next week.
In the meantime, here's a fresh take on the first round (which runs 27 picks), with a few significant changes near the top. As before, I expect a lot of the draft's better high school pitchers to slide out of the first round into the supplemental first round and second rounds, where they will be selected and likely paid over-slot bonuses by teams that saved money on their initial picks.
Please note that this only covers the first round, which is just 27 picks, because the New York Yankees, Texas Rangers, Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles forfeited their first-round selections by signing free agents from others teams who had received qualifying offers. (The Toronto Blue Jays have two first-round picks.)
