-Two mock drafts were released last week. Jonathan Mayo and Keith Law both have Deven Marrero going to the Pirates.

-Marrero went 8-for-12 with three doubles and a triple in the three game series against Washington this weekend. On the season he has a .279/.338/.436 line. He’s hitting for a .290/.350/.486 line in 107 at-bats in April and May.

Last week I looked at why scouting will be important for the upcoming draft.

Baseball America released their top 100 draft prospects. They also released numbers 101-200.


-Mike Zunino and Florida have finished their regular season. The SEC tournament will start on Tuesday.

-Deven Marrero and Arizona State finish their regular season with a three game series against Arizona, starting Friday.
