We are a week away from the Amateur Draft. Here is the last pre-draft discussion.
Eric Longehagen posted his mock draft on Fangraphs. His thoughts on 1:8 were –
8. Philadelphia – Pavin Smith, 1B, Virginia
Scouting director Johnny Almaraz and advisor/hitting genius Charlie Manuel were at the ACC Tournament and GM Matt Klentak has seen the UVA kids. I also think there’s a chance they cut a deal here to try to move Trevor Rogers back to their second pick, or they could just take Rogers here.
