MLB Draft Live Blog

The WOrld Champion Giants select St. John's shortstop Joe Panik with their first rounder.  This is also kind of a reach, but shortstops are like QBs, they go early.  Panik has the defensive skill set to stick at shortstop which makes him valuable already.  Quick reactions, soft hands and smooth footwork all help his cause. He might be able to hit a little bit as well.  The only way he doesn't stick at short is if his fringy arm moves him to second base, where I satill think he'll end up an above-replacement player.
