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.

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

    Matt Adams to the Tampa Bay Rays for Jake Odorizzi makes too much sense not to happen -clvclv 10/17/17

    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. (2017 Draft Thread)

    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. (What's the best we could hope for in 2018?)

    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.
