Jung has the potential to hit for both average and power. He average to below average with the glove, but does have an above average arm.

    from some website called mlbmockdraftexpress

    Haven't heard this guy before. They also have our resident Southern Miss fan's boy Matt Wallner going 4th.
    FG has him rated #10 overall as a 45+ and trending up.

    "Compact swing with power, has performed, may need to move to first base."

    Greene/Busch/Misner/Jung all seem like very similar prospects in the 7-10 range on FG's board.
    I think he (Teheran) finishes with a FIP ~3.3. -CrazyTrain 3/35/2019

    Gausman had a bad walk ratio for us -CrazyTrain 11/20/2018
    BB/9 with Braves: 2.72

    Fried, Newk and a couple other guys for Bumgarner and give him a pay day for 6ish years -CrazyTrain 10/15/18

    Braves need to take the BPA but hopefully that ends up as a 50 FV bat.

    Braves will probably need a 1B by the time Jung is ready, so that works.

    Alexander and Jenista.
    Waters is intersting too. Would prefer a guy that projects to more power though.

    If they don't make additions they can expect the same 3-5 win improvement they saw last year. That makes the Braves a 75-78 win team.

    The FO that needlessly promoted him early knew what they were doing and are paid to do this. We aren't, so we can't know more than them. Correction....they used to be paid to do this...

    Just kicking draft scenarios around a bit and laughed when the thought of how nuts this place would go if we somehow got Misner at #9 and Wallner at #21 crossed my mind.

    Fangraphs updated their ranks again today: https://www.fangraphs.com/prospects/...&team=&filter=

    The good news to me -- 7 of the top 11 are college bats. Anyone from the Misner, Bleday, Busch, Jung group seems pretty interesting. I like the idea of saving some money with one of those college hitters at 9 then take a high schooler with a big price tag at 21.

    Looks like 10 or so 50FV. Just stay the course and pick BPA 50FV player and all will be well.

    The group of hitters in the 7-11 range seem very comparable, so a strategy like you described might be the best approach.

    Another option might present itself if one of the 50s separates himself as a 55 in the next few months and the Braves punt pick 21 to get that guy to fall to 9 for an over slot deal.

    2:13 What's going on with Carter Stewart? He's falling fast down your draft rankings.
    Kiley McDaniel
    2:15 two quick draft questions, then I'll get to some pro stuff. The reports on Stewart are notably worse than this point last year. Around this point last year, Stewart was 93-95, touching 97 mph, flashing a 70 curveball and showing starter traits. Now he's mostly 90-93, touching 97 but not in the strike zone, curveball is flashing 60 and the body/delivery/command have regressed. The main concern about the wrist last summer is the quality of the breaking ball would regress and that has happened along with some athleticism, which is likely unrelated. Could still bounce back, but he's a clear tier lower now

    yikes. good thing he didn't sign

    Not sure whether to retract criticism of not signing him or not....

    Will still be fascinating to see what Braves draft strategy looks like going forward.

    Fangraphs did a large update to their 2019 rankings today. Here's the list: https://www.fangraphs.com/prospects/...0000&pagenum=0

    They wrote a long story accompanying the update with some notes. Here's the main section that impacts the Braves (https://blogs.fangraphs.com/updating...ft-rankings/):

    "Some preferences in the early picks are becoming clearer. It still seems like Adley Rutschman at one (Orioles) and Andrew Vaughn at two (Royals) are the two easier ones to project with what we know at this point (the full draft order and slots can be found here). Rutschman’s lead at the top spot is still significant, so it would take a major injury or an uglier-than-expected medical to make Vaughn a real option at the first pick for Baltimore. The buzz is that the White Sox are leaning heavily to college prospects for the third pick, with Nick Lodolo in the mix along with the next tier of college hitters, which can be ranked any way at this point (UNLV SS Bryson Stott, North Carolina 1B Michael Busch, Vanderbilt RF J.J. Bleday, Arizona State LF Hunter Bishop, Missouri RF Kameron Misner is the way we have them lined up right now). There’s similar buzz that Miami is also looking hard at college options and that Lodolo is in their mix. Things get a bit hazier beyond that and also depend on the picks at three and four. The general feeling is that this top 10 isn’t strong enough to make every club just take the best player available, so there’s some chatter that clubs picking outside the top five may take a money saver with the first pick and move that money to float a prep prospect to their second pick. That strategy may be more fraught than normal this year with Arizona in possession of a $16 million bonus pool and set to pick 16th, 26th, 33rd, and 34th."

    That 16th pick for Arizona could really hurt us trying to float someone down to 21, but if two prep players slip because of money, I'd think we are probably positioned second best behind Arizona to get one of them. None of the other teams loaded with picks (like Arizona) has a pick before 21.

    It seems like the ideal scenario right now is to take a college bat from the Bleday, Misner, Bishop group with our 9th pick and try to save some money with it (as Kiley mentioned), and then try to get a high schooler like Matthew Allan, Brennan Malone, Brett Baty, etc. at 21.
