We’ll update each pick in rounds three through ten of the 2017 MLB Draft with occasional comments and lots of discussion in the comments section.
78) San Diego Padres Mason House, OF, Whitehouse, Texas Pop-up bat this spring
79) Tampa Bay Rays Taylor Walls, SS, Florida State University solid glove, bat was disappointing this spring but could rebound
80) Atlanta Braves Freddy Tarnock, RHP, Brandon, Florida Highly projectable, already hits 95 MPH
82) Arizona Diamondbacks Matt Tabor, RHP, Milton, Massachusetts Intriguing cold-weather arm
83) Philadelphia Phillies Connor Seabold, RHP, Cal State Fullerton Extremely polished, started throwing harder this spring
84) Milwaukee Brewers K.J. Harrison, C, Oregon State University One of the better college bats with questions about defense
85) Los Angeles Angels Jacob Pearson, OF, West Monroe, LA Projects to hit for average, has good speed, power potential, high upside for this slot
86) Colorado Rockies Will Gaddis, RHP, Furman University Good performance record, four pitches, ground ball type.
87) Chicago White Sox Luis Gonzalez, OF, University of New Mexico Good glove, runs well, on-base skills with gap power.
88) Pittsburgh Pirates Dylan Busby, 3B, Florida State University Impressive college performer with strong power from the right side, good record with wooden bats, chance to stay at third
89) Miami Marlins Riley Mahan, 2B, University of Kentucky Line drive hitter but likely limited to second base
90) Kansas City Royals Daniel Tillo, LHP, Iowa Western Community College strong athlete, with low/mid-90s fastball, high upside
91) Houston Astros Tyler Ivey, RHP, Grayson CC Live arm, mechanics need some work but high upside
92) New York Yankees Trevor Stephan, RHP, University of Arkansas Another strong college performer with impressive command
93) Seattle Mariners Wyatt Mills, RHP, Gonzaga University Strike-throwing closer, money-saving senior.
94) St. Louis Cardinals Scott Hurst, OF, Cal State Fullerton
95) Detroit Tigers Joey Morgan, C, University of Washington Major league glove, bat uncertain at higher levels
96) San Francisco Giants Seth Corry, LHP, Cedar Hills, Utah Live arm, but rather raw, considerable upside but will need time.
97) New York Mets Quinn Brodey, OF, Stanford Left-handed hitter with some power, some tweener risk but I think there is more upside here than commonly believed.
98) Baltimore Orioles Michael Baumann, RHP, Jacksonville University Can be inconsistent but both fastball and slider could be plus.
100) Los Angeles Dodgers Connor Wong, C, University of Houston Solid glove, athletic, not a huge power guy but makes contact, gap strength
101) Boston Red Sox Brett Netzer, 2B, UNC-Charlotte Line drive hitter with good eye, second baseman at higher levels but chance to be a good hitter.
102) Cleveland Indians Johnathan Rodriguez, OF, Toa Baja, Puerto Rico raw tools type with prototype right field abilities, will need to polish skills.
103) Washington Nationals Nick Raquet, LHP, William and Mary 93-95 fastball, hard breaking ball but struggles to throw strikes.
104) Texas Rangers Matt Whatley, C, Oral Roberts Run on college catchers continues, another strong glove, bat questioned but chance for a fair bat with some pop
105) Chicago Cubs Keegan Thompson, RHP, Auburn University Tommy John survivor, throws strikes
106) Minnesota Twins Charlie Barnes, LHP, Clemson University polished finesse lefty, should zip through A-ball
107) Cincinnati Reds Cash Case, SS, Mount Dora, Florida Very promising bat, may move to second or third
108) San Diego Padres Sam Keating, RHP, Fort Myers, Florida: Projectable high-ceiling right-hander, was mentioned as high as second round pre-draft

114) Milwaukee Brewers Brendan Murphy, LHP, Mundelein, Illinois Highly projectable
117) Chicago White Sox Lincoln Henzman, RHP, University of Louisville Advanced college arm could move fast in bullpen
118) Pittsburgh Pirates Jason Delay, C, Vanderbilt University Senior with very good glove, useful budget pick.
119) Miami Marlins Colton Hock, RHP, Stanford University Successful college reliever but has a chance to start in pro ball
120) Kansas City Royals Michael Gigliotti, OF, Lipscomb Mentioned as a first round pick six months ago, spotty spring but could be very nice here.
