- The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that the San Diego Padres are considering Donavan Tate, Zack Wheeler, Mike Minor, Mike Leake, Grant Green and Aaron Crow with the third overall pick.
- The Pirates are considering Aaron Crow, Mike Minor, Alex White, Dustin Ackley and Tony Sanchez with the fourth overall pick, reports MLB.com.
- The Orioles' short list for the fifth overall selection include Zack Wheeler, Mike Minor, Mike Leake and Matt Hobgood, according to The Baltimore Sun.
- MLB.com reports that the Atlanta Braves are interested in Zack Wheeler and Alex White. The Braves own the seventh overall pick.
- Matt Purke is reportedly looking to match the signing bonus that Rick Porcello received in 2007. Porcello's $3.58 million signing bonus in 2007 is a record for high school pitchers.
Looks like the draft is going to be quite interesting. Looks like it all begins with the #3 pick San Diego. Interesting that McCoven favorite Tyler Matzek is not being considered by any of the teams preceding the Giants pick.
Anyone have any draft rumor scoop?
