Giants Aiming For Position Player In Draft

The Giants have the fifth overall pick in this June’s draft, and Peter Magowan said yesterday that the team hopes to take a position player.

Baseball America recently predicted the Giants would take first baseman Justin Smoak, while Jonathan Mayo went with shortstop Tim Beckham.  Beckham might be the superior choice, but he could be snagged by the Rays, Pirates, Royals, or Orioles.  It’s been rumored that the Orioles are leaning toward a college player, so perhaps they’ll pass on Beckham if he’s there at #4.
