  1. Chicago Cubs: Cole Wilcox, RHP, Georgia
    The Cubs have had success drafting and developing college bats, but they need pitching. Wilcox has a three-pitch arsenal, and there has been some talk of him going higher than this. With his polish, Wilcox could climb the minors quickly and offer some pitching help to Chicago in the near future.

  2. Boston Red Sox: Pete Crow-Armstrong, OF, High School
    The Red Sox are supposedly looking at high-upside prep players, and there is a lot about Crow-Armstrong potentially going higher than this. He has been one of the top-rated high school prospects throughout this draft cycle, and he finished off the spring hitting well while showing centerfield ability.

  3. Arizona Diamondbacks: Austin Hendrick, OF, High School
    Arizona is said to be targeting a bat in the first round, and Hendrick could go higher than this. The Diamondbacks may have to settle for a prep bat because the college top-20 bats could all go before No. 18. This is a nice fall-up option for the Diamondbacks.

  4. New York Mets: Jared Kelley, RHP, High School
    The Mets are not afraid to take a high school arm with big upside. Kelley fits that and is one of the few high schoolers to have pitched this spring. New York could grab him or one of the plethora of college arms who are going to go in the back half of the first round.

  5. Milwaukee Brewers: Slade Cecconi, RHP, Miami
    The Brewers could use more young pitching talent, and they have been linked to a lot of the college arms who are going to come off the board around here.

  6. St. Louis Cardinals: Ed Howard, SS, High School
    Some feel that Howard is the best pure shortstop in the 2020 MLB Draft, so he could easily go in the top 20. The prep star has good tools as a runner, hitter and defender. He would be a nice fit in St. Louis.

  7. Washington Nationals: J.T. Ginn, RHP, Mississippi State
    As Jim Callis points out in his mock, the Nationals are happy to take Scott Boras clients and players who have had Tommy John injuries. Ginn is a talented arm who fits into that category, and the defending champs could be aggressive to address the signability factor considering their deep pockets and history with Boras.

  8. Cleveland Indians: Dillon Dingler, C, Ohio State
    The consensus is the Indians are targeting Dingler. Having played centerfield as a freshman, Dingler has more athleticism and a stronger arm than typical catchers. This could be a big upside pick for Cleveland.

  9. Tampa Bay Rays: Justin Foscue, 2B, Mississippi State
    The Rays like high-upside arms and well-rounded bats. Foscue has that profile as a safe college bat. He could rise quickly for a team that is ready to be a serious contender in the American League.

  10. Atlanta Braves: Bobby Miller, RHP, Louisville
    The Braves are a tough team to figure out as they could go many directions with this pick. However, Miller could easily go higher in the top 20, so he’s a good value. Miller has a mid-90s fastball with a power slider and the upside to continue to improving. This feels like an Atlanta pick where the organization can develop him into a top-three-of-the-rotation starter.

  11. Oakland A’s: Tanner Burns, RHP, Auburn
    The A’s like players who can rise in the system quickly, and Burns is considered to be one of the fast-rising prospects in the first round. He has polished stuff and an advanced approach. He looks like a good fit for Oakland.

  12. Minnesota Twins: Chris McMahon, RHP, Miami
    The Twins could use more young pitching who can rise through the system quickly. Thus, I could see them taking a college pitcher like McMahon.

  13. New York Yankees: Nick Loftin, SS, Baylor
    New York adds a quality defender who has a good bat and can stick at shortstop. There is media buzz contenting the Yankees with Loftin.

  14. Los Angeles Dodgers: Clayton Beeter, RHP, Texas Tech
    The Dodgers don’t shy away from taking guys with big upside who have some question marks. Beeter would fit that as he probably would be a top-20 pick if it weren’t for injury concerns. He could be a steal for Los Angeles.
