Interesting strategy.Three high school players in the last half of the Top 10.Normally, these type of picks are difficult to sign unless going over slot, some require way over.
Don't know what their discussions have been, but it doesn't seem like the Twins have the dollars to get all three.But I also don't see them drafting anyone in the Top 10 they don't anticipate signing.So maybe they can get these guys for $200,000-$300,000 over slot, each.
Of the 3, Charles Mack is going to cost the most with his talent and commit to Clemson, but not bank breaking.Mack is one of those guys who has above average hit and power skills but questions about his defense at SS.Yet he's athletic enough that some scouts think he'd be an above average catcher (as he catches part time for his HS team).
Willie Joe Gary Jr was committed to Pearl River (Miss.) JC so I'm guessing that won't be a hard sign.
While Regi Grace (BA rank: 482 overal and 14th in state of Miss) is committed to Mississippi State and his stock climbed towards the end as he gained 5 mph by season's end; he had been 88-90 but got it up to 92-93.Mechanically he has questions as he does medically with a bilaterally fracture of L4 and L5 that cost him junior year (from weightlifting) and had to wear a back brace for 5 months.He did have offers from LSU, Ole Miss, and Auburn so the talent is definitely thought to be there.
