2014 MLB Draft Order

Through Regular Season: Only free-agent compensation can alter order | First tie-breaker is previous year’s record
We’ve seen some compensation picks set over the past several weeks. To the right is the first round update, circa February 11.

The ’14 draft class is deeper than the previous few, and the favorite to go No. 1 overall is North Carolina State left-hander Carlos Rodon.  Much of the depth is in the prep pitcher class, but there also appears to be more solid second-to-sixth round talents than the past two drafts.

Rodon’s teammate, shortstop Trea Turner, is among the top 10 prospects, and the high-grade prep prospects include SS Jacob Gatewood of Clovis High School (Calif.), C Alex Jackson of Rancho Bernardo High School (Calif.), and right-handers RHP Grant Holmes of Conway High School (S.C.) , Dylan Cease of Milton High School (Ga.) and 6-foot-5, 240-pound Shepherd High School (Texas) star Tyler Kolek.

One of my favorites from talking to scouts in the south is Ole Miss commit Ti’quan Forbes, a 6-foot-4, 175-pound shortstop from Columbia High School (Miss.). He’s raw, but is the youngest of the first-round talents and has huge upside with at least a shot to stick at shortstop.

    Nick Franzone Catcher of 6A Baker High School should be in the draft. They just ended the season falling short of making state. He had a solid catcher and lets nothing by him. He also had the highest batting average on his team. He is the best talented Catcher Baker High School of Mobile Alabama has ever seen. I have to say the best talent I have seen out there for a catcher in a long time. By the way you can view two of his grand slams on youtube.

    was talking more who the M’s would like and who would be at the #6 pick. Trea won’t be there at 6 from what I am reading and seeing with him. Cederoth maybe the only one there of those you listed but I think the other guys rank higher.

  3. Jason A. Churchill says:

    Entirely too early for any sort of rankings to carry any weight at all, but not even a mention of Trea Turner, Jacob Gateway, Tyler Kolek or Michael Cederoth? They’re in that group, no doubt. All of them are currently better prospects than Fisher. Haven’t talked to one checker or SD who believes he’s a top 10 guy right now. He has the most work to do to change that.

  4. rotoenquire says:

    Looking at how the M’s draft near the top barring any front office changes. Tyler Beede Vanderbilt. Aaron Nola RHP Louisiana ST., Sean Newcomb Hartford, Derek Fisher OF Virginia, Touki Toussaint Coral Springs (HS). In that order right now with Fisher moving up the board with a solid season.
