SF Giants MLB draft preview chat: Who could be some late-round fits?
WR: Ugh, don’t give me the Soderstrom war flashbacks *cries internally*. I think that is a logical and sound way of working with signing bonuses. Quite honestly, I am not enamored with any draft prospect this year in the realistic range for the Giants. I was all-in on both Soderstrom and Cavalli last year, but there hasn’t been anyone who stood out in the same way for me this year. That’s not to say there aren’t fantastic prospects available, just that it’s harder for me to delineate between them.
I do have some draft crushes later on like Davis Diaz, a NorCal Vandy commit shortstop whose bat I like a lot, Ky Bush, a lefty who has great fastball and slider, Peyton Wilson, who is like a supercharged Brett Auerbach, and Aaron Zavala, who was the Pac-12 Player of the Year with a versatile and well-rounded profile. Still, it seems like the Giants will be more reactive instead of proactive when it comes to value.
MD: I like a lot of those names for later-round picks. At this point, we’ll have to wait and see. Good talking to you as always and I can’t wait to chat with you about who the Giants ultimately select.
WR: In the end, it all comes back full circle to your first statement that we have no idea what the Giants will do haha! Great talking to you as always.
