Inaugural Draft Results: Bill Cooper

Our round 6 pick (106th overall) went to SP prospect Bill Cooper.



Five-pitch pitchers always attract me, especially if they are all at least decent pitches. The fifth pitch which can't be seen in the screenshot is a Forkball, currently rated at 45/60.

Cooper's case is a weird one. He was the 8th pick in Round 1 of the 2017 draft (going to the Jacksonville Twins). He pitched 2.2 innings for their AA team that...

Inaugural Draft Results: Bryan Davis

Our fifth pick (75th overall) went to right fielder Bryan Davis.



Bryan was drafted by the previous Boston GM as the 7th pick in Supplemental Round 1, so while he seems to have lost some stock, he did at least get to avoid moving with this draft (unlike most other players).

Bryan was the runner-up for Rookie of the Year last year. In spite of that, he still seems to expect to be warming the bench, so has been...

Inaugural Draft Results: Eddie Rogers

Posted 01-16-2015 at 02:10 PM by absurddoctor

Our fourth pick (70th overall) went to Eddie Rogers, another prospect looked at for his potential ability with a bat, not his fielding skills.



Eddie is more a gamble than Gaskill, as he is almost completely lacking in plate discipline at this point. However, his very intelligent, works his tail off, and seems to have the drive needed to improve. It is a gamble I would take again, though it seems difficult to believe there...

Inaugural Draft Results: Mario Padilla

Our third pick (39th overall) went to lefty starting pitcher Mario Padilla.



He is currently ranked number one amongst starting pitchers this season. It looks like the first inaugural draft gave him a long-term contract with his previous team, as his history doesn't indicate any extensions or other contract news. He was supposed to receive $28 million this year; instead he has ended up with $11 million from us, with another...

Inaugural Draft Results: Frank Gaskill

Posted 01-16-2015 at 12:38 PM by absurddoctor
Updated 01-16-2015 at 01:20 PM by absurddoctor

Our second pick (34th overall) went to a prospect named Frank Gaskill.



In his rookie draft he went to the 9th pick in the first round. While I tend to think of third base as a position for power-hitters, he look like a good potential lead-off or number two hitter. His stats are almost good enough to consider bringing up already, but with that much potential left to fill I'm hoping he can continue cooking in AAA for the rest...
