We are a month away from the 2018 MLB Draft, so it’s time to start thinking about who the San Francisco Giants will take with the second overall pick.

Not much has changed in the amateur ranks from the beginning of the year as far as the top picks are concerned. There are still a ton of good arms at the top of the draft.

There are some solid bats that are moving up the ranks as well, but we’ll get to them in another post.

To me this draft will go a long way in telling us what the future of this team will be. Of course, we only have a month until the draft, and with the Giants playing .500 baseball right now, I don’t see them being out of the race by June.

Having said that, there is the notion that this team needs to get younger and start building for the future. If that’s the case, then the Giants may want to look at going the high school right. That’s what they did last year by taking Heliot Ramos in the first round.

But if the Giants believe they still have a two-three year window to win, then in my opinion they need to look at a college arm that can move through the system quickly.

There are really two arms in this draft that I believe have the ability to pitch in the major leagues right now. And with the Giants having the second overall pick, they’ll obviously have a shot at one of those guys.

We’ll take a look at the three top college arms, and then at the end I’ll tell you who I would take if I were the Giants.
