Texas Rangers 2017 MLB Draft prediction post

Texas Rangers 2017 MLB Draft prediction post

After day two of the 2017 MLB Draft, that number could drop by two now that Austin Beck and Buddy Kennedy have been drafted.

It's typically much safer to draft college players who have proven they can get it done at a higher level.

The fact is Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft, held since 1965, has produced as many busts as future superstars among the players selected with the No. 1 pick. Ghyzel was taken by the Cincinnati Reds.

With the seventeenth pick in the first round of the 2017 MLB Draft, the Seattle Mariners selected Evan White, a first baseman out of the University of Kentucky.

With such a dire need for left-handed pitchers, the Orioles concluded Day 1 by drafting their second lefty of the day Zac Lowther with the No. 74 overall pick. His fastball consistently reaches the mid-90s. Here are some random musings about various players and the draft as a whole.

While the 21-year-old southpaw wasn't on the top 100 prospects list going into the draft, Lowther may be a guy that exceeds expectations going forward.

Hall is the first high school pitcher taken by the Orioles in the first round since they drafted Hunter Harvey with the 22nd overall pick in the 2013 draft.

As a junior, Russell still has eligibility remaining and can decide whether to sign with San Francisco or return to UConn for his senior season.

Went 5-5 with a 2.92 ERA (27 ER/83.1 IP) in 15 starts for Xavier University this season and led the BIG EAST Conference with 123 strikeouts.

Reks hit.352/.461/.471 as a senior in 2017, with 16 doubles and three home runs in 65 games.

Adam Hall feels a little relieved now that he's about to become a professional baseball player. A red-shirt sophomore at Texas, Schimpf didn't see any action during the 2016 season and finished with a 1.56 ERA in 17.1 innings pitched this season.

High school players are trendy.
