Top Storylines Entering Draft

Heading into the draft, the biggest question is which pitcher will be the first taken off the board, as there are three very solid prospects that teams have been going back and forth on.

Brady Aiken is arguably the top prospect coming out of high school. For a pitcher as young as he is, Aiken is actually a surprisingly polished prospect. He already has a high-90s fastball as well as an MLB-ready curveball with solid command. Tyler Kolek is the other exciting high school pitcher, as he's a hard-throwing tall kid out of Texas with the strongest arm in the draft.

Along with the two high schoolers, Carlos Rodon is expected to go early as well coming out of N.C. State. He's an exciting left-handed pitcher with an established fastball and the best slider in the draft. With the No. 1 overall pick for the third straight year, the Houston Astros will have a tough decision as to which of these pitchers they want, or if they want a pitcher at all.

A few names stand out near the top of the draft that aren't pitchers. Nick Gordon, the brother of Dee Gordon, is an athletic shortstop that has plenty of speed to cover a ton of ground at the position. Meanwhile, Kyle Schwarber, Alex Jackson and Jacob Gatewood all look like future sluggers in the majors.

There are a ton of exciting prospects expected to go in the first round, and they'll all be looking forward to joining their new teams soon.
