I know that we look to have struck gold last year, with Machado. That being said, we would be playing with fire to draft another high school postion player (Starling), they just to not pan out at a high enough rate EX: Donavan Tate, Matt Bush, Tim Beckham. Bundy has a world of talent, but so much can happen with an 18yo arm in the next few years. EX: HOBGOOD. Bradley would be a bit of a reach at 4. This leaves 2 guys Sonny Gray and Danny Hultzen.
Gray has his critics, but has unquestionable electric stuff. He is experienced and has pitched many big games in the SEC. Witha fastball that averages 92-94 and can top out at 96-97, a plus slider and a change that could develop into a plus pitch with time, he has the talent to be the right-handed arm along with arrieta and lefties britton and matusz, set us up in a favorable position for the next ten years.
No one player, other then maybe Trevor Bauer, has helped there draft stock more then Danny Hultzen. He may be the closest thing to Brian Matusz
that is out there (not a bad thing). FB sits in the low 90"s can move it all around the plate with sink. A solid slider, a curve that shows promise and a change that has good sink and has late dive on it. As of May 3rd he is 9-1 with a 1.19 era 75.2inn and 112 in the ACC ( Not exactly high school ball).
Hultzen may go 3, and if thats the case I think Sonny Gray would be the best pick. He has the stuff, durability, and the blue collar work ethic that will make this city fall in love with him when he arrives.
