Results from the second round of the 2018 MLB Draft:
44. Tigers Parker Meadows, OF, Grayson, Georgia: Brother of Austin Meadows and could become a similar player, although not as mature or polished at the same age as his brother was; had late helium, perhaps not coincidentally at the same time his brother started ripping major league pitching, Clemson commit.
47. Reds Lyon Richardson, RHP, Jensen Beach, Florida: University of Florida recruit; super-athletic with fresh arm, fastball around 90 but has considerable developmental potential.
48. Mets Simeon Woods-Richardson, RHP, Sugarland, Texas: University of Texas recruit; stuff inconsistent but he has good size at 6-4, 210, and has been up to 93 MPH while flashing a curve; Mets know something about helping physical right-handers from Texas develop their secondaries.
51. Pirates Braxton Ashcraft, RHP, Robinson, Texas: Baylor recruit; athletic with projectability and high upside, inconsistent but the Pirates love working with this type of arm.
52. Blue Jays Griffin Conine, OF, Duke University: Son of Jeff Conine; hit .277/.402/.585 with 15 homers, 37 walks, 61 strikeouts in 195 at-bats; will sell out for power too much at times but when he’s properly locked in he can truly mash
53. Marlins Osiris Johnson, SS, Alameda, California Cousin of Jimmy Rollins, very athletic; Cal State Fullerton recruit; erratic but has a chance to stick at shortstop while providing above-average offense if it all comes together.
