The 2017 MLB Draft starting on June 12 is just around the corner and the San Francisco Giants own the 19th overall pick.
After not having a first round pick last year, the San Francisco Giants jump back into the fold in 2017. The Giants have leaned towards taking a college player in the first round in recent drafts. We’ll see if that will continue to be the case this year with the 19th pick.
We’ve already looked at six possible targets for the San Francisco Giants with the 19th pick in the 2017 MLB Draft.
All of those players, with the exception of McKay, should still be a possibility for the San Francisco Giants at 19.
However, with it being so close to the draft we now have even newer mock drafts from the experts. We’ll take a look at who they think the San Francisco Giants might take at 19.
I think a lot of what the Giants do this year will depend on how they view the franchise. If they think the San Francisco Giants still have the chance to contend, they’ll get a college player that could have an immediate impact.
But if the organization thinks it might be time to do a soft rebuild — I don’t foresee a situation where the Giants would ever do a full rebuild — they could decide to go the high school route and get a player with more upside that can develop in the Giants’ organization.
