The 2017 MLB Mock Draft will be updated again on July 11, 2016. The draft order is according to the MLB Standings as of June 10, 2016. View our scouting reports by clicking on a player’s name.
The 2017 draft features plenty of college pitching talent, with Brendan McKay, Alex Faedo, J.B. Bukauskas, Alex Lange, Tanner Houck and Kyle Wright all potentially being first-round picks. Out of those pitchers McKay, Bukauskas and Faedo are the only candidates to go 1-1 in next year’s draft. Hagen Danner is a prep arm to keep an eye on this summer, he’s also a candidate to go 1-1, which would make him the first right-handed prep arm selected at that spot.
It looks like the 2017 draft is a lot more talented than the 2016 draft was, with Florida catcher J.J. Schwarz leading the way. Schwarz didn’t have the season statistically that he did in 2015, but he still looks to be the top prospect for most teams, especially with the current state of catchers in the major leagues. K.J. Harrison is another catcher to watch over the next year.
Jake Burger could be next year’s Kyle Lewis, hitting a slash of .346/.405/.605 with 25 homers and 114 RBIs in his two years at Missouri State. Yes, the competition isn’t great, but his bat has been so good that a team will most likely take a chance on him early.
Alejandro Toral and Mark Vientos are the top high school position players. Both are high upside players that could eventually be the face of a franchise. Vientos is a potential five-tool guy, while Toral has great contact and power ability.
