Evan White – 1B/OF – Kentucky

White has been mentioned as a possibility for the San Francisco Giants at 19, but that would be a bit of a reach. I think the Giants could get him at 58 if they want him. White is hitting .366 with 39 runs scored, 8 home runs and 38 RBI. He is a great defender at first base, but could be moved to a corner outfield position. Kentucky will host the Lexington regional and begin play on Friday, June 2 against Ohio.

Gavin Sheets – 1B – Wake Forest

Sheets is hitting .319 with 52 runs scored, 20 home runs and 79 RBI. He is one of the best college power bats in the draft, but the Giants would have to reach to take him at 58, or hope he falls to them at 96.

Drew Ellis – 3B – Louisville

Louisville and Drew Ellis will be hosting a regional this weekend. They will begin play on Friday, June 2 against Radford. Ellis leads the Cardinals with a .376 average, 51 runs scored, 17 home runs and 53 RBI. He’s another option for third base, and the Giants could probably get him at 58.

JJ Matijevic – 1B – Arizona

Arizona is in the Lubbock regional and will face Sam Houston St. on Friday, June 2. Matijevic leads the Wildcats with a .389 batting average to go along with 54 runs scored, 10 home runs and 64 RBI. He’s not the best option for first base on this list, but maybe the Giants take him if he slips to 96.
