Let me start by saying that I would be exstatic if the Giants take any of these three guys. I think they all could contribute at the major league level level within two-to-three years.
Mize and Singer are the two that I believe could get Major League hitters out right now. And I wouldn’t be surprised if either is in the bigs by the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020.
McClanahan is the one for me that scares me a little, but again, he might have the highest ceiling. I could see him being a number one starter some day, or I could see him being an elite closer. He could even become an Andrew Miller type reliever pitching multiple innings late in the game.
The decision might be made for the Giants a little as I believe Mize is going first overall.
If I’m the Giants though, I go with Singer.
What I love the most about Singer is that he’s a competitor and he’s a winner. He put his team on his back in 2017 and led them to a College World Series title. Right now he’s helping his team run away with the regular season SEC title.
I love the fire that Singer plays with, and it helps that he has electric stuff. He’s pitched in a lot high leverage situations already in his career, and I honestly believe you could have him start a big league game right now and he’d give you five solid innings.
Either way, the Giants are going to have a shot to get an immediate impact arm in this draft.
