They certainly seem to have a type for pitchers. College and big. It does seem like an older draft, which hopefully means some of the pitchers move quickly on relief roles.

Starting to wonder how they're going to field a GCL team given the limit on players over the age of 21 or whatever it is.

 

I thought only the DSL had those age restrictions.The GCL only has service time restrictions.Maybe I'm wrong.Either way, old class so far.Maybe they'll just go IFA for the youngsters.

A weak spot in this draft overall was though to be college pitching.My guess is that the boys in the front office may have found that the college pitchers at the top of the draft to be underwhelming, they must have really liked the quality of the draft's depth for college pitchers. So, no to the supposed top-end guys, but grab a bunch of quality depth in later rounds. Or something like that.

That was also Fangraphs thoughts.... Lacking the high end guys, but lots of depth.

With all these college seniors, how much money has this team banked? 

 

Are they just going to draft one of the HS kids at pick 40 and offer him all of the money?

Correct me if I am wrong but I only see that they have grabbed one college senior so far. The juniors drafted early could go back to school and try luck next year.

That is an interesting point. They cannot exactly lowball them. I'm wondering if the analytics guys took a long look at the types of people that improve their stock from Junior to Senior year and decided to draft all of them... who knows.
