2016 MLB Draft: Mock Draft 2.0

Prev1 of 13Next

With the 2016 MLB First-Year Player Draft less than a month away, uncertainty still remains towards the top of the first round. While it is not a bad draft class, there is a lot of risks with few safe bets.

It should be an interesting few weeks as prospects begin having private workouts with teams and the college baseball season wraps up. This will potentially make the top of the draft a bit more predictable with the MLB Draft beginning June 9.

    The top Juco arm Matthias Dietz had 116K’S 11BB in 103 innings? Why are the Juco guys not recieving consideration? Phil Bickford , a Juco guy,is producing good numbers as the first round pick of the Giants last year.

      Thank you for reading Gary. Phil Bickford isn’t a typical JUCO guy. He was a first round pick. But, as far as Matthias Dietz, he’s a top 100 prospect and will be selected in the top five rounds.
