Confirmed: #Cubs will take Almora at 6, #Padres take Fried at 7. Think #Pirates & Dahl at 8 are set. Appel to #Athletics at 11? #mlbdraft

That's what I was thinking. This reeks of Porcello 2.0.

One of the more unpredictable drafts of recent years, that's for sure.

That's the first thing I thought when seeing him still on the board.

I'm wondering if Courtney Hawkins falls to the Sox. He is a prototypical Kenny pick. Raw, so very toolsy, prodigious power potential, but contact/approach issues.

Kevin Goldstein ‏@Kevin_Goldstein
No way in hell. RT @ImDaBaron: @Kevin_Goldstein Would the White Sox take Appel?

Another interesting storyline for tonight will be who bites on Giolito, and whether will he sign or play for UCLA.

Now they need to get crafty with their budget/signing. They may have to incur the draft pick penalty.
