D'Backs Mod #1

Hey guys, I'm Julian Lehrer and I'll be you Diamondbacks Scouting Director for our mock draft. As you all know it's been an abysmal year thus far for my beloved D'Backs, so lets see what we can do to upgrade Arizona's long term outlook. Here's the rundown of the D'Backs picks:

Rd. 1 #16 Overall ($2,338,200)
Rd. 2 #54 Overall ($1,034,500)
Comp. B #69 Overall ($821,100)
Comp. B #70 Overall ($808,600)
Rd. 3 #89 Overall ($603,400)
Rd. 4 #120 Overall ($432,300)

At #16 overall, there are a number of directions I could go with this pick. While the D'Backs need is pitching at the big league level, their top three prospects are hurlers (Bradley, Shipley, and Blair). However, I believe the best strategy is to "go by the board," so here's who I'm looking at with this pick:

  • OF Bradley Zimmer - University of San Francisco
  • RHP Jeff Hoffman - East Carolina University (If he slides due to TJ concerns)
  • RHP Grant Holmes - Conway HS (SC)
  • LHP Sean Newcomb - Hartford University
  • RHP Sean Reid-Foley - Sandalwood HS (FL)
  • RHP Touki Toussaint - Coral Springs Christian HS (FL)
  • C/1B Kyle Schwarber - University of Indiana

We can worry about the next three rounds later, but what direction should we go in Round 1?
