- 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?
