That has taken us through our first four picks in the first two rounds. We will discuss potential targets for rounds 3 and 4 here. Right now, I am looking at college players in the third and fourth (one bat and one arm), assuming I take a high school bat, two high school arms, and a college bat in the first four picks.

In the third round, we have pick 97, with a slot bonus of $539,600, with a plus 5% of $566,580. That should be plenty to sign a college player of our choosing. If we take a risky/expensive guy with an earlier pick, we could always go cheap senior sign here. Assuming we don't, here are my targets for pick 97:

Name Position Hometown College
Spencer Turnbull RHP Madison, AL Alabama
Jacob Lindgren LHP Kiln, MS Mississippi State
James Norwood RHP Manhattan, NY St. Louis University
Andrew Suarez LHP Miami, FL Miami
Austin Gomber LHP Winter Garden, FL Florida Atlantic
Eric Skoglund LHP Sarasota, FL Central Florida
Jordan Luplow OF Clovis, CA Fresno State
J.D. Davis 1B Elk Grove, CA Cal State Fullerton
Jordan Brink RHP Fresno, CA Oregon State
Greg Allen OF Chula Vista, CA San Diego State
Jake Cosart RHP League City, TX Seminole State
Wyatt Strahan RHP Villa Park, CA Southern California

Let me know who you like and why below. I am leaning towards a college arm, because there are some really good choices available here.

Let's move on to targets for pick 128, slot value of $400,200, with a plus 5% of $420,210. Here are some college targets at this pick:

Name Position Hometown College
Rhys Hoskins OF Sacramento, CA Sacremento State
Austin Byler 3B Peoria, AZ Nevada
Pat Connaughton RHP Danvers, MA Notre Dame
Jace Fry LHP Beaverton, OR Oregon State
Dillon Peters LHP Indianapolis, IN Texas
Daniel Mengden RHP Houston, TX Texas A&M
Aaron Brown LHP Chatsworth, CA Pepperdine
Austin Cousino OF Dublin, OH Kentucky
Austin Slater OF Jacksonville, FL Stanford
Austin Davis LHP Scottsdale, AZ CSU Bakersfield
Heath Fillmyer RHP Roebling, NJ Mercer Community College
Jordan Foley RHP The Colony, TX Central Michigan

Again, it looks like the best bets here are college arms, although there are some interesting college bats available. Please let me know who you like and why below, and I will share my thoughts after I hear some from others. If there is someone missing that you want to stump for, do that in the comments as well. Thanks!
