Jordan seems to love those toolsy high school athlete types. He had great success in Florida with this approach, though it hasn't yielded much for the O's. Avery and Hoes aren't exactly setting the world on fire, but obviously they're both still quite young. Ryan Adams and Tyler Henson were from Jordan's first O's draft and haven't proven themselves as potential every day Major Leaguers.
Starling seems to be the "toolsiest" and most athletic guy in the whole draft. The type of guy that Jordan must be salivating over. Assuming Rendon and Cole are off the board, and AZ takes either some polished college guy like Hultzen or stud HS pitcher like Bundy, would Jordan reach for the stars and go with Starling at #4? There are plenty of "safer" guys there to take, and lord knows our luck with high school position players has stunk over the years (hopefully Machado will buck that trend).
