2017 MLB Mock Draft: Final Mock 2 Rounds




Round 2




Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: June 12, 2017 with updates every Tuesday leading up to Draft Day.


  1. Minnesota Twins: Blayne Enlow, P, St. Amant HS (LA)

    The Rangers take the best player available. Blayne Enlow may go as early as the top 15. He has a fastball, slider, and curveball that are MLB ready, but needs to develop his change up. Enlow is a fantastic value pick for the Twins at 37.


    Other Minnesota Twins Selections






  2. Cincinnati Reds: Kyle Hurt, P, Torrey Pines HS (CA)

    The Cincinnati Reds need help everywhere. The 6-3 205 lb Kyle Hurt is 3-1 with a career worst 1.70 ERA in 2017. He's still a first round prospect despite having a worse ERA than usual.


    Kyle Hurt has excellent size and a consistent ERA. Hurt has excellent command and velocity with his pitches. Hurt has a 94-mile per hour 4-seam fast ball along with a deadly sinker. Hurt may be high school baseball's version of Jon Lester since he has impressed me on tape with his 4-seamer and sinker with almost the same miles per hour as Lester. Hurt does not have Lester's size at 6-4 240 lbs, but he is big for a high school pitcher at 6-3 205 lbs heading into his senior year of high school so he does have time fill out his frame and add enough muscle where he is like Lester size.


    Other Cincinnati Reds Selections







  3. San Diego Padres: Matthew Sauer, P, Ernest Righetti HS (CA)

    The 6-4 192 lb Matthew Sauer is 7-1 with a 1.03 ERA in 2017. Sauer threw 114 strikeouts in 2017 as well. Matthew Sauer has a 94-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 92-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, an 89-mile per hour slider, an 88-mile per hour slurveball, and a 79-mile per hour changeup. Sauer has potential to be a house hold name, but he needs to develop his curveball.


    Other San Diego Padres Selections







  4. Tampa Bay Rays: Caden Lemons, P, Vestavia Hills HS (AL)

    The 6-6 205 lb Caden Lemons got bigger this year. As a result his velocity increased. Caden Lemons has a 97-mile per hour 4-seam fastball and a 90-mile per hour 2-seam fastball. Lemons also has a slider that can go up to 85-milers per hour. You'd like to see Lemons add more velocity on his 2-seamer, but its not a deal breaker at this point.


    Other Tampa Bay Rays Selections







  5. Atlanta Braves: Jeremiah Estrada, P, Palm Desert HS (CA)

    Jeremiah Estrada is putting together his worst season. Estrada has a 1.13 ERA and went 6-3 in 2017. Estrada also has a career low 64 strikeouts this season, but got hot at then end of the year with 21 strikeouts in his last three starts to end the year with 85 strikeouts. Jeremiah Estrada has 4 plus pitches with his 95-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, his 93-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 80-mile per hour changeup, and a 77-mile per hour slider.


    Other Atlanta Braves Selections






  6. Pittsburgh Pirates: Jake Adams, 1B, Iowa

    The 6-2 250 lb Jake Adams leads Iowa with a .339 batting average, 27 home runs, and 70 RBI's in 2017. Adams is a huge reason why Iowa has had success in 2017.


    Other Pittsburgh Pirates Selections







  7. Oakland Athletics: K.J. Harrison, C, Oregon State

    Oakland takes the best player on the board. K.J. Harrison can hit any type of pitch. The 6-0 205 lb catcher just needs to hit any type of pitch consistently. He has the versatility to play catcher, first baseman, third baseman, second baseman, or shortstop. Many MLB teams are projecting Harrison at catcher, first base, or third base. Harrison is batting .320 in 2017 even though his home runs are down from 2016.


    Other Oakland Athletics Selections







  8. Arizona Diamondbacks: Drew Rasmussen, P, Oregon State

    Drew Rasmussen missed most of the season with an injury. He's completely healthy again though which is why the Diamondbacks can develop him here.


    Other Arizona Diamondbacks Selections






  9. Philadelphia Phillies: Bubba Thompson, CF, McGill-Toolen Catholic HS (AL)

    Philadelphia drafts a batter here. The 6-2 180 lb Bubba Thompson posted a .404 batting average with 9 home runs and 30 RBI's in 2017. Thompson is being widely considered a first round prospect, but we got a second round grade on him.


    Other Philadelphia Phillies Selections







  10. Milwaukee Brewers: Tristan Beck, P, Stanford

    The Brewers grab a pitcher here. Tristan Beck would be ranked much higher if he wasn't injured. He may end up returning to school, but the Brewers seem like a team that would take a flyer on Beck.


    Other Milwaukee Brewers Selections






  11. Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim: Colton Hock, P, Stanford

    The Angels add the top reliever in the draft here. Colton Hock is someone that can boost the Angels bullpen.


    Other Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim Selections







  12. Colorado Rockies: Riley Adams, C, San Diego

    The 6-4 210 lb Riley Adams is batting .310 in 2017. Adams also has 13 home runs, 47 RBI's, and a .564 slugging percentage. You can make a case that Adams is one of the top catchers in this draft when watching his tape. You can make a case that Adams is one of the top catchers in this draft when watching his tape.


    Other Colorado Rockies Selections






  13. Chicago White Sox: Jake Eder, P, Atlantic HS (FL)

    Jake Eder is one of the best High School pitchers in the 2017 MLB Draft. Eder is a huge steal at this point.


    Other Chicago White Sox Selections







  14. Pittsburgh Pirates: Mitchell Stone, P, Deer Creek HS (OK)

    Pittsburgh goes with a pitcher here. The 6-9 240 lb Mitchell Stone has not lost in 2017. The 5 no decisions along with him giving up 2 more runs per game may scare off some MLB teams. I could see the Pirates taking a flyer on him here.


    Other Pittsburgh Pirates Selections






  15. Miami Marlins: Jeter Downs, SS, Monsignor Pace HS (FL)

    The Marlins get a short stop here. The 5-10 165 lb Jeter Downs posted a .388 batting average with 7 home runs, 4 doubles, 4 triples and 24 stolen bases in 2017. Jeter Downs showed first round tape. His size though drops him to the second round though.


    Other Miami Marlins Selections







  16. Kansas City Royals: Keston Hiura, LF, U.C. Irvine

    The Royals grab a bat here. Keston Hiura can play anywhere in the infield or the outfield and is the best player on the board. Current Royals left fielder Alex Gordon is 33 and beginning to become a detriment to the team so Keston Hiura makes total sense here.


    Other Kansas City Royals Selections






  17. Houston Astros: Michael Gigliotti, CF, Lipscomb

    The Astros get a center fielder here who can develop until George Springer is an Unrestricted Free Agent in 2021. Michael Gigliotti is the best player on the board at this point.


    Other Houston Astros Selections







  18. New York Yankees: Sam Carlson, P, Burnville HS (MN)

    New York goes with a pitcher here. The 6-4 208 lb Sam Carlson is the top high school arm on the board at this point.


    Other New York Yankees Selections






  19. Seattle Mariners: Tanner Burns, P, Decatur HS (AL)

    Seattle drafts a pitcher here. The Gatorade High School Player Of The Year in Alabama gets picked here in the second round.


    Other Seattle Mariners Selections







  20. Houston Astros: Tristen Lutz, RF, Martin HS (TX)

    The Astros take the best player available. The 6-3 210 lb Tristen Lutz is a power batter who has the bat speed to get on base with line drives, but lacks the natural speed to get on base when he hits a grounder. Tristen Lutz has the potential to be a 5-tool batter down the road. He's raw though and will be a 3-5 year project in the minors.


    Other Houston Astros Selections






  21. Detroit Tigers: Calvin Mitchell, RF, Rancho Bernado HS (CA)

    The Detroit Tigers get a right fielder. Calvin Mitchell is my top right fielder on the board here.


    Other Detroit Tigers Selections






  22. San Francisco Giants: Luke Heimlich, P, Oregon State

    The Giants go with Luke Bonfield here. The 6-1 197 lb Luke Heimlich has stepped up in 2017. Luke Heimlich has a mind boggling 0.81 ERA and is 10-1 in 2017. Heimlich has pitched 111.1 innings and has 120 strikeouts in 2017. Luke Heimlich has a 93-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 91-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 79-mile per hour changeup, and a 75-mile per hour curveball. Displays excellent command and pinpoint pitching accuracy.


    Other San Francisco Giants Selections






  23. New York Mets: Jayson Gonzalez, 3B, Bishop Amat HS (CA)

    The Mets should upgrade their infield at some point. Someone as talented as Jayson Gonzalez in the second round is a steal at this point. Gonzalez gives the Mets a long-term replacement for David Wright.


    Other New York Mets Selections







  24. Baltimore Orioles: Alex Troop, P, Michigan State

    Baltimore drafts a pitcher here. The 6-5 210 lb Alex Troop has stepped up in 2017. Alex Troop has a 2.47 ERA and is 8-3 in 2017. Alex Troop has a 92-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 86-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 80-mile per hour changeup, and a 77-mile per hour curveball. Displays excellent command and pinpoint pitching accuracy.


    Other Baltimore Orioles Selections






  25. Toronto Blue Jays: Alex Cunningham, P, Coastal Carolina

    Toronto has the luxury of taking the best player available. Alex Cunningham was a big reason why Coastal Carolina won the 2016 College World Series. The 6-0 210 lb Alex Cunningham has stepped up in 2017. Alex Cunningham has a 2.63 ERA and is 7-2 with 117 strikeouts in 2017.


    Other Toronto Blue Jays Selections







  26. Los Angeles Dodgers: Seth Romero, P, Houston

    The Dodgers take the best player available. Seth Romero can throw up to 100 miles per hour on his fastball. He got dismissed for smoking weed during a practice session though.


    Other Los Angeles Dodgers Selections






  27. Boston Red Sox: Steven Jennings, P, DeKalb County HS (TN)

    Steven Jennings is a strikeout machine. The 6-2 175 lb pitcher had 99 strikeouts in 2017. He also won 8 AA State Player of the Year despite a shaky ERA. teven Jennings has a 93-mile per hour 4-seam fastball, a 92-mile per hour 2-seam fastball, a 90-mile per hour sinker, and a slider that can be anywhere from 77-84 miles per hour. Has a quick arm and can deliver a quick release with a 3/4 arm slot. Despite having a subpar ERA in 2017, he fixed his mechanics so that won't be an issue going forward. He won the AA State Player of the Year in Tennessee and even got voted Homecoming King at his High School. His teachers consider him a remarkable student with a 4.0 GPA and his classmates gravitate towards him and the leadership he brings to his team.


    Other Boston Red Sox Selections







  28. Cleveland Indians: Dylan Busby, 1B, Florida State

    Dylan Busby has a .308 batting average with 15 doubles, 12 home runs, 51 RBI's and 7 stolen bases in 2017. Busby has the versatility to play anywhere in the infield as well as a fast arm that may translate to the outfield. Dylan Busby is a good power hitter. Has good speed. Can hit home runs, line drives, grounders, or bunts. Has the versatility to play first base, second base, third base, and shortstop. He also has a fantastic arm and quick release. He has the arm to convert to left field, center field, or right field.


    Other Cleveland Indians Selections






  29. Washington Nationals: Shane Drohan, P, Cardinal Newman HS (FL)

    The Nationals take the best player available. The 6-2 175 lb Shane Drohan stepped up as a senior. He had 100 innings pitched, a 1.23 ERA, and 123 strikeouts in 2017.


    Other Washington Nationals Selections






  30. Texas Rangers: Clarke Schmidt, P, South Carolina

    The Rangers take the best player available. Clarke Schmidt would be a first round pick if he wasn't injured in 2016.


    Other Texas Rangers Selections







  31. Chicago Cubs: Logan Warmoth, SS, North Carolina

    The Cubs take the best player available. The 6-0 190 lb Logan Warmoth is a good power hitter. He seems fluent with his swings at the plate. Warmoth leads North Carolina with a .346 batting average in 2017. Logan Warmoth hits with a lot of power. He's sound defensively too. Has a quick arm to force easy outs.


    Other Chicago Cubs Selections







  32. Arizona Diamondbacks: Nick Allen, SS, Francis Parker HS (CA)

    The Diamondbacks get another shortstop after foolishly trading Dansby Swanson to the Braves. Nick Allen is the top High School shortstop available.


    Other Arizona Diamondbacks Selections







  33. San Diego Padres: Ryan Vilade, 3B, Stillwater HS (OK)

    The Padres draft a third baseman. Ryan Vilade entered the year as a first round pick. He's disappointed this year though.


    Other San Diego Padres Selections






  34. Colorado Rockies: Zac Lowther, P, Xavier

    The Rockies grab a pitcher. Zac Lowther is our top College pitcher on the board. He's the final College Pitcher in my top 20 rankings.


    Other Colorado Rockies Selections







  35. Cleveland Indians: Luke Bonfield, CF, Arkansas

    Cleveland gets a center fielder to develop. Luke Bonfield has two seasons with a .304 batting average.


    Other Cleveland Indians Selections






  36. Pittsburgh Pirates: Carl Stajduhar, 3B, New Mexico

    Pittsburgh goes with a batter here. The 6-1 215 lb Carl Stajduhar is a good power hitter. He seems fluent with his swings at the plate. Stajduhar leads New Mexico with 17 home runs and has a .350 batting average in 2017.


    Other Pittsburgh Pirates Selections







  37. Kansas City Royals: Sean Bouchard, 1B, UCLA

    The 6-3 210 lb Sean Bouchard leads UCLA with a .310 batting average. Bouchard blasted 9 home runs for UCLA in 2017. Eric Hosmer is in a contract year for the Royals.


    Other Kansas City Royals Selections






  38. Baltimore Orioles: Steven Williams, C, Deerfield-Windsor HS (GA)

    Baltimore drafts a catcher here. Steven Williams makes solid contact with the baseball. He doesn't force things and is the leader on Deerfield-Windsor's baseball team.


    Other Baltimore Orioles Selections







  39. Houston Astros: Shane Baz, P, Concordia Lutheran HS (TX)

    The Astros take the best player available. Some have Shane Baz going in the first round. I think he has some off the field concerns which is why he's much lower than most pitchers.


    Other Houston Astros Selections
