• The Vance Honeycutt Conundrum & A Few Late Draft Risers

    Peter and Carlos hop on the BA draft podcast to talk about the prospects to know in the college world series. How does this year’s field compare to a fantastic 2023 group and how much is there for a player like UNC’s Vance Honeycutt to gain or lose on the sport’s biggest stage? The two talk through why Honeycutt’s profile is so tricky, and think through the player development challenges that his hit tool questions create. After that the two talk through a few other CWS prospects, wonder how Braden Montgomery’s injury affects his stock (if it does at all) and talk about a pair of late-season draft risers to know—one high school shortstop and one college shortstop.

  • Prep Pitching Risers & The Difficulty Of Lining Up The Top Of The Draft Class

    Carlos and Peter hop on the draft podcast to talk about impact performers in the first few days of conference tournament action and also discuss the most recent news about ECU righthander Trey Yesavage’s health situation.

    After that, the two talk through a trio of prep pitchers who have stormed up draft boards this spring and debate those profiles vs. some of the college pitchers who could go off the board in a similar range.

    Next, the two talk about the flaws of the prospects in the middle of the first round and beyond and then pick out a few players who could go in the 10-25 range they feel most confident in—if they feel confident about any.

    The show closes with a discussion about how challenging it has been to line up the top college players in the class beyond Charlie Condon and Travis Bazzana. Seemingly every scout we talk to has a different order for lining up Chase Burns, Hagen Smith, Braden Montgomery, Nick Kurtz, JJ Wetherholt and Jac Caglianone. How do Carlos and Peter line them up? Depends on the day.
