#44: Nick Castellanos: He's got a great bat. While he'll move to the hot corner, he's got great power and hitting ability. He's one of the best raw power bats in the draft. Don't expect him to move quickly, though. Defense is still a question even at 3B, and he'll be a tough sign, but he's our new best hitting prospect and a stellar 3B choice. He may have to move to RF (speculation on my part) but he'll be a hell of a hitter either way.

#48: Chance Ruffin: Not happy. Above average fastball, plus slider, curve is a bit above average, change is average. Stuck between closer land and setup guy land. Not happy at all- when Stetson Allie is on the board, this is a signability pick
