2015-06-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you see the Michael Freeman going in this draft? Also, where do you see Mitchell Traver going?
(John2015 from OKC)
Traver probably goes in the first four rounds, Freeman more of a round 6-10 type talent. They'll both play professional baseball and like it. (Christopher Crawford)
