    Mahle actually has pretty good stuff. Take him out of Cincinnati and he is a top 30 pitcher. Seems undervalued to me.

    So here are my thoughts. The Twins obviously liked their first 2 draft picks as they very rarely go overslot on their early picks they are usually trying to gain money to use later in the draft. 
     
    2. Someone posted Priellip was closer to 48 than 28. Base on the contract I think that is a fair assessment. It’s not to say he doesn’t have high upside, but due to his injury he was lower on peoples boards than many of us anticipated and he commanded much less dollars to sign.  
     
    3. This is another year where the day 2 signings are more interesting to me than the day 2. On day 2 currently only the knuckleball pitcher and the volts 2nd baseman look like they have a reasonable shot at the MLB.  We are also getting a couple high school athletes as lottery tickets. This was one hell of a draft.

    The Twins, Sean and others, said that they were going to try to sign him. The draft-and-follow was a possibility, but they wanted him signed right away for multiple reasons.

    My guess is he decided he would be better off immediately going to the twins organization to get healthy and get stronger for next year.  He is one heck of a lottery pick.

    Yeah, Mahle's road stats are quite a bit better than Castillo's. I said before that Castillo would be the big splash and may be a big morale boost due to his reputation, but Mahle may be more impactful on the field.
    That said, as much as it would hurt, I'd probably include Royce Lewis as a headliner if the Reds were willing to deal both to the Twins. Castillo, Mahle, Gray and Ryan is a rotation I'd feel good about.

    The day after he was drafted I was told he was going to JC and would be treated as a draft-and-follow.
    Something changed over the last week, apparently. So that was kinda surprising, but it could have been as simple as his rep telling the team that his number came down.

    Is this a surprise? Or, will be if/when he signs? I didn't even expect this to be a discussion at this point; never figured he'd even consider signing
