Acquired: As consumption for failing to sign RHP Karsten Whisten
My Pick: RHP Sonny Gray
This is likely the pick as the Padres have displayed public intrest in Gray and Uconn RHP Matt Barnes. He has a nasty slider (almost as good as Gregerson'd), pinpoint control of his curveball, and a 93-96 MPH fastball. He is 6'1'' and would be a tremendous pick. Barnes or Springer may go here. Latos-Kelly-Gray-Castro-Purke would be a rotation that would make players see SD on the calender and so darn, they will be a tough team. His delivery reminds me of Mike Adams, and he could be a Zach Greinke type pitcher.
What a 1-4!
Bonus: 4.5 million
Purke is an incredibly interesting pick as he was drafted by the Rangers, 33rd overall, and did not sign in 2008 and went to college. He was going as high as 3rd overall to the D-Backs until he hurt his arm. His draft stock fell and he has been going in the supplemental round in most mocks. I value him a lot as you can see. He could be a David Price type player and is a stud. He is extremely high risk-high reward. Gray-Purke-Latos-Kelly-Castro could be historically good!
