We're a month away from draft day, and not too much has changed at the very top of the draft board. David Price continues to dominate during Vanderbilt's SEC schedule, and he remains the favorite to go first overall to the Devil Rays. Matt Wieters is also one of the top prospects, but his prospect luster has seemed to fade a little bit this spring, which probably has been affected somewhat by the fact that his advisor will be Scott Boras. The Royals reportedly are looking at pitchers with the second overall pick, and have been scouting prep righty Rick Porcello and college lefty Ross Detwiler very hard. The Cubs are all over prep third baseman Josh Vitters, a player the Pirates also covet. The further you go down the list the more players that have been rumored with each team, and May is the month in which signability is determined as teams start to prepare for their plan of attack during the draft. Keep in mind that the revised free agent compensation system means there is an extraordinarily long sandwich round. Since the Brewers signed Jeff Suppan this offseason, their second selection (third-round pick) will be right around the 100th overall pick, depending on whether or not Max Scherzer signs with the Diamondbacks. Speaking of Scherzer, he touched 94 in his first outing with the Fort Worth Cats pitching in the independent league, and he struck out six batters (including striking out the side in the second) in three and two-third innings. Should he be available for the draft, he would be ranked just behind Price on this list. The lack of high-end college righties could mean Scherzer re-enters the draft looking for a huge pay day similar to Luke Hochevar a year ago.
