Giants 2014 Draftees By the Numbers: Oldest/Youngest, Tallest/Shortest, Best value/Worst value, Etc.)

This year I put all the Giants 2014 draftees in a spreadsheet in preparation for my draft review fanpost (should be posted in a few more days). During a break from my writing, I started playing around with the ordering of the spreadsheet and noticed some interesting and amusing results. I thought it would be a good idea to post these for all to enjoy. Feel free to create and share your own category listings in the comment section.

Just to clarify things below, my "Draft Day Age" numbers are in a YY.DDD format and refer to the person's age on June 5, 2014. So, for example, a player identified as having a "DDD = 18.035" would be 18 years + 35 days old on June 5th. Also, when I list a player as being "unranked" that means he didn't make the top 500 in Baseball America's rankings, nor the top 200 in MLB.com's rankings, nor the top 291 in Kiley McDaniel's rankings on Scout.com.

NUMBER OF PITCHERS VS. HITTERS DRAFTED

25 vs. 15 (although 2 of the college draftees are sophomores from a JuCo)

NUMBER DRAFTED AT EACH POSITION
RHP = 15; LHP = 6; C = 6; CF = 5; SS = 3; RF/LF = 2; 3B = 1; 1B = 1; 2B = 1
