    Re: 2009 Redszone mock draft selection thread

    With pick 16 the Arizona Diamondbacks select Jacob Turner, RHP Westminster Christian Academy (MO). This is the writeup from MLB mock draft.

    As Turner's velocity has increased this spring, so has his asking price. A few teams in the top ten might be scared off by the potential financial commitment to Turner, but the Royals showed last year they aren't afraid to tackle tough negotiations. Catcher is certainly a point of organizational need, but Turner provides much better value. His fastball has run up to 96-98 mph this spring while he has maintained the late sink that made his fastball a potential plus pitch when he threw it 92-94 mph. Some people -- maybe those being told to by Scott Boras -- have compared Turner to Rick Porcello. Porcello was a once-in-a-decade talent and Turner, arguably, isn't the best high school pitcher in this draft. Their fastballs are similar, but Turner's breaking stuff lags well behind where Porcello's was going into the draft. Still, Turner and Zack Grienke would give lots of hitters fits.*

    With pick 17 the Arizona Diamondbacks select Mike Leake, RHP Arizona State University.
    This was the writeup on him from MLB Mock draft.
    The Indians have focused on advanced hitters in the past couple of drafts, but Leake is the kind of high-floor pitcher that should be intriguing to GM Mark Shapiro. Leake has been arguably the best pitcher in college this season not named Strasburg and profiles as at least a good No. 3 or 4 starter. He doesn't have overpowering stuff, but it's good enough. Athletic with clean mechanics, good control and multiple off-speed pitches that he'll throw at any point in the count, Leake will be a solid big league pitcher in pretty short order.

    With the 18th overall pick of the 2009 MLB Draft, the Florida Marlins select:

    LHP Rex Brothers, Lipscomb University.

    We're looking to restock the farm with pitching, and after considering several pitchers, Brothers appears to be the best mix of "stuff", projectability and signability for this organization.

    Emin3mShady07 is on the clock...

    I'm considering just giving him the best player available. He hasn't been on since Sunday and has just one post since April 3rd. If Emin3 hasn't signed on by the time NC Reds is ready to make his pick then we'll just move on.
