  1. Brady Aiken, LHP, High School
    The Astros go with the top pitcher in the 2014 MLB Draft for the second straight year. The Southpaw Aiken could give Houston dual-aces with righty Mark Appel. Aiken has emerged the consensus top talent, and the Astros appear to favor him.

  2. Alex Jackson, C/OF, High School
    Many assume the Marlins will take one of the top-three pitchers, but Miami’s system is loaded with pitching talent. It would make more sense to take the best bat in the 2014 MLB Draft.

  3. Carlos Rodon, LHP, N.C. State
    If Kenny Williams was still the White Sox GM, they would pass on Rodon because he’s represented by Scott Boras. Current GM Rich Hahn, on the other hand, has worked with Boras in the past. Hahn wants a pitcher, and Rodon is too good to pass up.

  4. Nick Gordon, SS, High School
    The Cubs are said to want Carlos Rodon, but it looks unlikely he gets to their pick. Reportedly, Chicago would prefer Nick Gordon to Tyler Kolek even though the Cubs’ farm system needs pitching while being strong at position players.

    Pick change; previously Tyler Kolek, RHP

  5. Tyler Kolek, RHP, High School
    Minnesota needs more pitching talent in the farm system. The organization is fortunate to land Kolek and his 100 MPH fast ball. If Kolek doesn’t develop his off-speed stuff, he could end up being a good closer.

    Pick change; previously Aaron Nola, RHP

  6. Aaron Nola, RHP, LSU
    The Mariners could use more pitching talent in the minors. Nola has been a fast riser this spring and could easily go this high or higher. Some say he could go third to Chicago.

    Pick change; previously Kyle Freeland, RHP

  7. Tyler Beede, RHP, Vanderbilt
    The Phillies want to take a college pitcher unless Nick Gordon somehow falls to their pick. Beede has great stuff and looks like a good value for Philadelphia.

    Pick change; previously Nick Gordon, SS

  8. Kyle Freeland, RHP, Evansville
    The Rockies are always in search of more pitching, and Freeland has been a fast riser. Colorado could go with a number of talented young pitching prospects.

    Pick change; previously Tyler Beede, RHP

  9. Touki Toussaint, RHP, High School
    The Blue Jays are believed to be targeting some young arms in Toussaint and Sean Reid-Foley. Here, Toronto lands the first, and more coveted, of the two.

  10. Sean Newcomb, LHP, Hartford
    The Mets are said to be all over Newcomb. Taking a southpaw would make sense for New York after drafting a big bat last year.

  11. Sean Reid-Foley, RHP, High School
    The Blue Jays snatch up the other high school pitcher they’re supposed to be targeting. Toronto could decide to grab another bat to go with a pitcher, but the strength of the 2014 MLB Draft is pitching, so it makes sense to get a better talent with another arm.

  12. Trea Turner, SS, N.C. State
    The speedy Turner could go higher. Milwaukee would be a nice landing spot for him.

  13. Max Pentecost, C, Kennesaw State
    The Padres are said to want a bat and would have to be thrilled to land Pentecost. He has good bat and could stay at catcher.

  14. Bradley Zimmer, OF, San Francisco
    The Giants got with a local product in Zimmer. He has one of the best bats in the 2014 MLB Draft and could be a quick riser.

  15. Kyle Schwarber, C, Indiana
    The Angels add another talented young bat to help bolster their farm system. Schwarber would be a nice talent for L.A. to develop and the Angels are said to be high on Schwarber.

    Pick change; previously Michael Conforto, OF

  16. Michael Chavis, 3B, High School
    The Diamondbacks drafted a good pitcher who fell to them last year in Brandon Shipley. This year, Arizona could do the same with a bat in Chavis. He could be the second-best high school bat to Alex Jackson, and the Diamondbacks need to jump start their farm system with a hitter.
