MLB Draft Live Blog

The Mariners decide to surprise us by selecting a pitcher.  Everyone had them taking a hitter, either Anthony Rendon or Francisco Lindor.  Hulzten is a pretty safe pick, with the upside of a #2 starter.  He has a low 90s fastball to go along with an above average changeup.  His slider is a work in progress and is the linchpin for success at the MLB level.  He delivers the ball from a very low arm slot which makes it tough for lefty hitters to see.  If i had to pick one player to reach the majors first from this draft class, I'd pick Hultzen.
