"ARLINGTON, Texas — With the amateur draft less than two weeks away, scouting director Doug Laumann believes a deep, pitching-heavy draft will enable the White Sox to get some "pretty good players" despite not having a pick until No. 47.
"I've eliminated 20 to 25 guys," said Laumann, who won't have a first-round pick because of the free-agent signing of Adam Dunn. "The claim that people are saying this is the best draft in 20 years, I don't have a great feel for. But at 47, I feel there are a lot of quality guys who will be there around the second, third and fourth rounds."
Surprised to see Mitchell so high, and above Flowers and Hudson. I guess if you're looking at highest possible upside, he could be the best of the three.
HIghtest I've ever seen for Viciedo (who comes out ahead of Eric Hosmer, Austin Jackson, and Jake Arrieta, for example). Seems slightly low for Hudson. Presumably Flowers is in the top 50.
