Logan Warmoth – SS – North Carolina

This is another player that has been linked to the Giants in mock drafts. Warmoth and North Carolina are hosts this weekend. They’ll face Davidson to start the regional, which also includes Michigan and Florida Gulf Coast. The shortstop leads the Tar Heels with a .349 batting average. He’s scored 59 runs, hit 9 home runs, driven in 45 and stolen 18 bases. I really like Warmoth and think he would be a good pick at 19.

Luke Heimlich – LHP – Oregon State

Heimlich leads the nation with a 0.81 ERA in 111.1 innings pitched with 120 strikeouts to 21 walks. He will either pitch on Friday or Saturday for Oregon State as they host the Corvalis Regional. I would think Oregon State would save him for a possible matchup with Nebraska on Saturday. The Giants would probably have to reach and grab him with their 19th overall pick to get him.

Alex Lange – RHP – LSU

In my opinion, Alex Lange is the best pitcher in college baseball. I’ve seen him throw several times this year, and I always leave impressed. I think he will be a solid two or three in a rotation very soon. LSU will be hosting a regional this weekend. I think we see Lange against Texas Southern on Friday, June 2. Again, the Giants would have to reach and grab him with the 19th pick to get him.

Stuart Fairchild – OF – Wake Forest

Wake Forest is hosting a regional this weekend and will begin play on Friday, June 2 against UMBC. Fairchild is hitting .353 with 62 runs scored, 15 home runs, 59 RBI and 17 stolen bases. The Giants could use another outfield prospect, but they’d need Fairchild to fall to them at 58.

Brian Miller – OF – North Carolina

Miller is right behind Warmoth with a .340 average going into the Chapel Hill regional this weekend. He’s also scored 57 runs, hit 7 home runs, driven in 47 and stolen 22 bases. The Giants would need to hope Miller falls to them at 58, but if he does it would be a great pick.
