With the amateur draft less than 24 hours away, Marc Delucchi completes his three-part preview of the San Francisco Giants plans for the 2019 MLB draft.
Six days ago, we kicked off our pre-draft series by looking at the players most often connected with the San Francisco Giants first-round pick. At that point, it looked like they would be deciding between UNLV shortstop Bryson Stott and West Virginia right-hander Alek Manoah.
Since then, a host of new names have been tied to the Giants and the No. 10 overall selection. It’s always difficult to read rumors this late in draft season. New names could be a sign that the Giants are trying to create a smoke screen in an effort to get their favorite prospect to take less money.
At the same time, it could also be reporters and other teams’ scouts finally getting an accurate read on the San Francisco front office.
If you missed the first two parts in this series, be sure to give those a read as well:
- Part 1—Scouting reports on Bryson Stott, Alek Manoah, Kameron Misner, and Matthew Allan
- Part 2—What would I do with the No. 10 overall pick?
Now we’ll add to that with a few more reports on players the Giants might be eyeing at No. 10 overall and some final odds on the pick.
