30th Round - RHP Cameron Stanton, St. Edwards University (TX)

Stanton is the son of former Brave Mike Stanton.

 

And with that, I'm out. Most selected after round 25 or so don't sign (though the Braves got RHP Matt Custred in the 35th round last season).

I'm disappointed that he's not a lefty like his old man. Stanton was such a big part of the Braves success in the early 90s and then went to the Yankees and played a major role in them winning all those rings.

Mike Stanton was a GOD! He's the reason Giancarlo Stanton changed his name, so as not to shame it.

Here's super slo-mo on O'Malley. Ransack, this looks like the ABC swing, yes?

 

Actually no. He does move his hands back and slightly lower but it's minimal. Any correction would be to have him go ahead and start his hands at that spot. The big drop of the hands is due to the lower trajectory of the ball and he does a good job of throwing his hands at the ball and producing what looks to be a solid line drive. An ABC swing will produce a loop or a J shape. His swing is a much more diagonal \ to the ball movement.

Jim Callis rates the Braves draft as one of the 5 "most promising"

3. Braves
This year's Draft crop was deep in high school pitching and thin everywhere else, and Atlanta picked accordingly. The Braves landed three of the eight best prep arms available with their first three selections: New York right-hander Ian Anderson (first round, No. 3), Kansas lefty Joey Wentz (supplemental first) and Texas southpaw Kyle Muller (second). Those three will eat up the bulk of the club's $13,224,100 bonus pool, but they should be worth it. Atlanta also grabbed slugging California catcher Brett Cumberland (supplemental second), Louisville finesse left-hander Drew Harrington (third) and live-arm North Carolina high school righty Bryse Wilson (fourth) before seeking discounts in rounds 6-10.

Via MLB Trade Rumors: The Reds have reached an agreement with No. 2 overall draft pick Nick Senzel and will sign the Tennessee third baseman for a $6.2MM bonus later today, reports MLB.com’s Jim Callis. The second pick came with a value of $7,762,900 this season, meaning that Cincinnati will save $1,562,900 on the pick. That money can be reallocated to other picks further down the team’s draft board.

Keith Law's breakdown of our first 10 picks.

Quote

 

Atlanta had four picks on Day 1 and used three on high-upside high school pitchers. Right-hander Ian Anderson (1), who was seventh on my final board, had a rough spring, missing several starts due to poor weather, a strained lat and pneumonia, which meant a lot of teams had a hard time getting enough looks at him. But Atlanta was heavy at his last pre-draft start, in which he showed his best velocity of the year. He's a kid that can be projected due to his a great delivery and easy arm action that he can repeat, and the weird season he has had at least means he has been lightly used. He'll sign well under slot at pick 3, allowing Atlanta to sign left-hander Joey Wentz (1A) and right-hander Kyle Muller (2) to over-slot deals at picks 40 and 44, respectively. Wentz is a two-way player who plays first base and has plus power, but came out of the chute this spring bumping 96 mph and giving up zero hits in his first three outings, although he didn't hold the velocity into the season. There's good mid-rotation potential here. As for Muller, he's a huge Texas righty who has been sitting in the low 90s this spring and can get up to 95, with an average breaking ball but ridiculously high workloads. … Cal catcher Brett Cumberland (2A), drafted with the pick they acquired from Baltimore a few weeks ago, led the Bears in every offensive stat, hitting for average and power and getting on base as a switch-hitter, but he's a long way off defensively and will need a lot of development to stick back there. If he does, he's a potential All-Star; otherwise he's more of a regular at first or in an outfield corner.

They went the college route with Louisville lefty Drew Harrington (3), a command/performance guy with good sink and average velocity and feel for a slider and changeup. He can really pitch, but the upside is limited by the stuff, and he might be just a fifth starter. … North Carolina prep righty Bryse Wilson (4) has good stuff, including a 93-95 fastball with an upper-70s slider, but a bad delivery with a high back elbow that's late to pronate, and his fastball lacks life or plane. … Gardner-Webb's Jeremy Walker (5) is a 6-foot-5, 230-pound right-hander who popped late this spring, hitting 96 in the conference tournament. … They ran the board with senior signs, probably to preserve money for the top three picks, although Taylor Hyssong (8) is a funky lefty who could end up as a specialist reliever, and Matthew Gonzalez (6) can play a bunch of positions and hits for some average. Ultimately, however, this draft will be judged by those top three arms.

Gabe Howell also in Atlanta to sign his contract today

 

Wow Trion sure did get a field upgrade from when I played against them. Grats to them. They used to have the smallest, POS, crackerjack box of a field that I ever played on in high school.

Yes it was. They built a new athletic facility on top of the hill with the new school.

I saw a comment that the Braves were able to sign him over slot due to their senior selections in the prior five rounds. This shouldn't cut into their slot money for earlier rounds.
