|Oh gosh, I'm not enough of a prospect guy for this. Willie Calhoun. Logan Shore. Franklin Barreto. Brent Honeywell. Nick Senzel. (Matthew Trueblood)|

|I have zero interest in Logan Shore as a fantasy commodity. Sorry. (George Bissell)|

(Ian from Oakland)
|The stuff is LOUD, he looks the part, he has a high floor as a reliever? One thing that always stood out was that he RARELY ever went past 5 innings while his teammates Logan Shore and Alex Faedo routinely went 7+. It could be a durability issue, it could be because his control was so poor that his pitch count killed him by the 5th inning. Not a red flag, but a concern none the less. -SG (Live Draft Chat)|

(Aaron Bair from WV)
|Similar to the question above, coincidentally. Almost like 50 is a round number, or something...
I won't re-mention the ones just touched on. I'll add the A's, White Sox, Reds, and Rockies to that list. I like a lot of these drafts for the same reason. The numerous picks and shifting of prep players on the board probably has created a situation where an unexpected surplus of college players are available to clubs that value performance.
A's--Puk was the top guy on my board, and I am a fan of both Daulton Jefferies and Logan Shore. The A's have three big league pitchers in this mix, and it isn't crazy to think they could have three starting pitchers at that.
White Sox--I think they got two really safe bets to provide value at the big league level in Collins and Burdi. Alec Hansen had 1/1 talk because of his natural size and stuff entering the Spring, but the control was so bad he's been an afterthought of late. Chicago has a great reputation developing starting pitching internally. Collins has a big league bat and Burdi has the stuff to be the first player from this class to reach the big leagues in a relief role. What if they get Hansen to click and throw strikes, too?
Reds--Senzel and Okey are both very high-floor players, both very polished players with a good chance to contribute at the big league level. Trammell is a guy I saw a lot over the summer and as an underclassman, and I've been a fan of his for a few years now. Good blend of safety and upside so far for the Reds.
Rockies--Riley Pint has as high a ceiling as any player in this class. I'm high on Robert Tyler as well and think he could remain a starter. Ben Bowden is a physical lefty with big league pitches. The Rockies all-out assault on pitching in the Draft continues, and they've gotten some arms I've liked a lot from both the prep and college ranks the last two years.
