Default Re: MLB Draft

Cortes I think is pro bound.
Hill is in a tricky spot...his draft place is valued at $500K...nothing to scoff at.
The question is can he improve his stock with another year and get to that $1 mil signing range?

I'd lean to him signing....but you never know.

I'm sure both Hill & Cortes came to a verbal agreement or they wouldn't have been drafted in the first ten rounds . That's the way it works nowadays .

Not sure what will happen with our guys that got drafted, but it's got to be a nice ego bump going into the series of the year against ARK.

Nobody to impress. Just relax and do your job.

Hoping we get a few of these guys back, but can understand them leaving IF they don't feel they can raise their draft stock any higher.

Cortes, with a great season, could move his higher, but I simply don't think he can be consistent from beginning to end of a season.

Hill, IMO, could greatly improve his position with Meade working with him. I think the kid has a ton of room to grow...

Owen White would be crazy not to take the cash........

Of the players currently on the team, I'm dead serious when I say that IMO Cody Morris would be the biggest loss. Next year, with a little more development, he would be a Friday night ace.

Default Re: MLB Draft

Only one player that was a college sr (kid from Wofford) was drafted in the first 4 rds. That is because they do not have the bargaining power that Jrs and below have. Unless Hill improves tremendously next year, with a brand new team, then this is as high as he will be drafted. If you add in the fact that he had arm trouble this season, then it would be best for Hill to sign this year and get his professional career off and running.

Yep. he needed this season to be relatively injury free. Had a small hiccup, but he was able to overcome it and put up some good numbers

Hill is as good as gone, he'll be a senior next year which means he'd probably have to accept well below slot value due to a lack of leverage. Morris and Cortes are the two interesting ones, they both have another year of leverage since their both sophomores so them coming back to improve their stock makes more sense. I think they're both gone though.

I didn't expect Morris to go in the Top 10, so that makes this interesting. He would have 2 years left. But they took him in the 7th, but it's only a $185K slot value. Still I think they usually vet the offer for the guys in the first 10 Rds (especially the higher Rds.)

So I'm inclined to think he takes it...but I feel like with the way he performed this year, if he has a similar or better year next year, he'll actually go up in Rd's and money. I could see him as a 3rd-4th Rd next year pretty easily with a good progression and no injury.

Now Hill and Cortes, yeah, I think they are gone. Same with White and Taj.

Glad to see Stokes get some $.

I think Morris could move up to fringe first rd status if he comes back. His last few outings were very impressive :

-----7+ innings against a top 15 ECU team (5 hits/2 runs)
-----7 inning 5 hits no earned runs against A&m on the road
-----7 hits 3 hits / no runs against Mizzou

Build on those outings and cut down on some walks and he would have a much bigger payday next season. However, money in the hand is a guarantee and if he has a couple of more big outings on the biggest stage, his leverage may get him a bigger payday this season anyways.

Default Re: MLB Draft

In order of most likely to be gone:

1. Hill
2. Cortes
3. Morris

I think the only one I can really hold out hope for is Morris since he is a sophomore and this is his first true year of SEC pitching but he's most likely gone as well. He, Hill, and Cortes were always going to go in the top 10 rounds so it's not really a surprise. We could have a solid group starting three next year of Morris, Mlod, and Chapman if he came back.

Really hope we can get Blaze into school. Instant starter at SS and the strongest arm in his class in the field.
