The MLB draft is coming up, and starts next week on Tuesday night, June 9. Besides having the #1 pick, the Nats also have the #10 pick. Washington could end up getting a player that will have a big impact on the team very soon. And with Mike Rizzo in charge (maybe), the man who was a big part of putting together a solid Arizona farm system, there is hope that they will do something good with this pick. Over the course of this week, I’ll profile several players that are potential picks for the Nats at #10.
Way back on May 21, Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus’ Future shock, did a mock draft. He also had the Nats trying to pick a guy that would definitely sign, and his choice leads us to our first position player profile: outfielder Brett Jackson out of University of California. Law lists him way down as prospect #57, and Jim Callis puts him higher up at #34.
