Just a reminder, this is only a list of players who I would predict having major league success...

SLEEPERS: Karsten Whitson, Dylan Covey

THOUGHTS:
This is a really weak draft overall, but there is some talent if you know where to look for it. Guys like Dylan Covey, Karsten Whitson, Stephen Gonsalves, Trevor Williams, and others have had major stock drops, from being considered top 10 picks to out of the first round. Whitson recently underwent Tommy John surgery, so he probably won't be back until next season, but if you think about it, it makes a lot more sense for him to sign with a team rather than go back to college. If a team takes him in the 6th round and signs him for slot, he can use major league quality rehab facilities and have access to trainers, while in college, he wouldn't even start his senior season at full strength, and he would lose precious development time. 

NOTE ON APPEL:
I don't think that Mark Appel will be an ace. I can see Mark Appel as a respectable back end starter, remember, Luke Hochevar was also a number one overall pick! I don't think Appel should go first.

TOMORROW:
I am going to try to get a mock draft in for the first round, and an in depth on the Padres pick, but this is no promise, because this is finals week! After the draft, I will try and do a shadow draft for the Padres. I might also be able to get something up that will explain the draft rules from the CBA.
