This is the Official Day 3 Thread.
Notable Names to Watch on Saturday
With 10 rounds in the books, all of the top 100 players who are going to sign have already been drafted. There are still plenty of names on that list who will likely find themselves taken in the final 30 rounds on Saturday, but there's no shot they take a deal.
Regardless, these are the best players still available for day three of the 2014 MLB draft:
x-Jacob Bukauskas, RHP, Stone Bridge HS (Virginia)
Bukauskas has said all spring that he wants to attend North Carolina next year, even sending a letter to teams stating his intentions to go to college, via Baseball America. He's an undersized right-hander (5'11") who can touch triple digits with flashes of a plus breaking ball.
x-Bryce Montes de Oca, RHP, Lawrence HS (Kansas)
One of the most intriguing, albeit volatile, arms in the high school crop is Bryce Montes de Oca. He's a monster at 6'7" and 265 pounds with a fastball that is returning to its mid-90s velocity following Tommy John surgery last year. The rehab cost him any feel for off-speed stuff and command is well below-average, but he's a project that a team could try to work on.
Keith Weisenberg, RHP, Osceola HS (Florida)
Unlike Bukauskas and Montes de Oca, Weisenberg actually has physical projection left. He's 6'5" and 195 pounds with a low-90s fastball and athleticism to repeat his mechanics. The 18-year-old is committed to Stanford and could end up being a top-20 pick in three years.
Again, these arms aren't going to be taken until late on Saturday simply because it's going to be impossible to sign them. They will, barring something unforeseen, have the draft experience even though it won't be their ultimate dream.
Aren't x-Mac Marshall and x-JJ Schwarz still out there? If so, they'd be guys I'd love to see the Reds try to sign tomorrow.
