The only position that remotely makes sense to draft for proximity at this point is SS, and I would argue 1. Don't draft for need and 2. There are no great college SS in this draft.
We don't have immediate needs (organizational or otherwise) at any other positions that would necessitate us drafting for proximity to majors, and even if we did I go for upside over polish everyday of the week. Give me more Robert Stephensons and Jesse Winkers and less Mike Leakes and Ryan LaMarres.
