FantasyPros Baseball Podcast: Mock Draft w/ Middle Round Picks

Mar 13, 2018

Where would Syndergaard rank if he could stay healthy?

Welcome to another episode of the FantaysPros Baseball Podcast. The show is hosted by our own Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypros). He’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will provide insight throughout the baseball season.

We’re kicking off the week with a mock draft and this time, we’re starting from the middle picks at 5 and 7. Joining us for some fun is FantasyPros writer Chris Bragg (@LooseMoose6). As with any draft, practice makes better and with the season approaching quickly, it’s best to get an idea of how each draft might shake out. Before we get into the picks (10:19), there have finally been some more free agent signings. Naturally, we’re discussing Jake Arrieta’s new team (1:57), Lance Lynn’s one-year deal (4:19), Jonathan Lucroy joining the A’s (5:40), and Neil Walker adding to the Yankees’ already strong team (7:35). We then go pick-by-pick explaining our rationale. Find out how Bobby and Chris end up going two different directions with strategy.
