Shooter Hunt Rumors


Draft Roundup

All kinds of good draft info surfacing today.  Let's take a look.



Rangers Leaning Toward College Pitcher In Draft

According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, the Rangers "would love to take a high upside college pitcher who could shoot through the system" with their 11th overall pick this June.  Sullivan suggests Shooter Hunt, Tanner Scheppers, and Christian Friedrich as possibilities.  Scheppers may be out of the picture given the stress fracture of his shoulder.

ESPN's Keith Law ranked his top 60 for the draft on May 10th, and he considered the top college pitchers to be Aaron Crow, Brian Matusz, Scheppers, Friedrich, Josh Fields, and Hunt.  In their May 16th mock draft, Baseball America picked high school first baseman Eric Hosmer for Texas.

By the way, check out the June Amateur Draft link.  This will remain on the sidebar until after the June 5th draft takes place.



Boras Demands For Alvarez, Hosmer Leaked?

Kiley McDaniel reports rumors of Scott Boras' asking price for '08 draftees Pedro Alvarez and Eric Hosmer.  He's hearing a $9.5MM big league deal for Alvarez and a $7MM bonus for Hosmer - steep demands.

Hosmer, a high school first baseman, has been compared to Casey Kotchman by Baseball America.  He's a top ten pick.  Alvarez, one of the top talents in the draft, plays third base for Vanderbilt but may end up at first.  He figures to go within the first four picks (Rays, Pirates, Royals, Orioles) for sure.

By the way, the Reds have the seventh pick, and BA's Jim Callis thinks they'll go for a pitcher.  He names Shooter Hunt, Tanner Scheppers, and Tim Melville as the main candidates.
