Two of the most respected names in the MLB Draft business, both in terms of quality and connections, are Baseball Prospectus’ Kevin Goldstein and ESPN’s Keith Law. Their day-of-draft mocks have hit the table and there is still no consensus on who the Astros will take at No. 11 overall. Law offers up Florida prep shortstop Francisco Lindor as the answer:
Francisco Lindor, Monteverde Academy (Fla.)
Archie Bradley if he gets past picks No. 4, 7, 9, and 10. Also heard Jed
Bradley and even Alex Meyer here.
Seems like No. 11 is a little too late in the draft to get a good read on, but it looks like the Chris Reed rumors were overblown, or at least stuck in the wrong round. Goldstein has the Astros taking Texas right-hander Taylor Jungmann.
11. Houston Astros: Taylor Jungmann, RHP, Texas. All signs point to a pitcher, and Jungmann is a Texan with few anticipated signing issues. Last Mock: Sonny Gray
Sounds like there are still a number of possibilities at 11. The Astros will have a number of potential arms to choose from, and perhaps Lindor as well, as they look to upgrade their farm system.
