This year’s MLB draft class is weak in many ways. It’s one of the weakest I’ve ever seen at the upper echelon, and it is the weakest college starting pitching crop I’ve ever seen, period, with maybe two pitchers right now whom I would call first-rounders (WVU’s Alex Manoah and Elon’s George Kirby). The strength of the class, if there is one, is in college bats, and over the past week I saw four of the best in the group, including the current No. 1 prospect in the class, Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman.
