There’s a chance Batcho blows up next spring and ends up going higher than this, which is crazy to think because he’s a bit off the beaten path within the draft community currently. 140.

Baltimore Orioles: Anthony Servideo, SS, Ole Miss 127. 6.

Cincinnati Reds: Joe Boyle, RHP, Notre Dame 53. I said it recently in an episode of the P365 FBP, but Hancock and his high-floor and middle-of-the-rotation type stuff will fit extremely well in an organization that also boasts the likes of Jackson Kowar, Brady Singer and Kris Bubic within its farm system.
