Through two days of the 2014 MLB draft, 315 prospects have heard their name called, but some of the best are still missing from results.

The most talented remaining players are high schoolers. This means drafting them is now a risk. If they don't like where they're drafted, which is becoming increasingly likely as the rounds go by, they can just choose to go to college.

At least one top prospect has reportedly already decided to do so.

Here are the best players available, as well as a full list of grades through Day 2.

Analysis

4. LHP Mac Marshall, Parkview HS; Lilburn, Georgia

Bryan Lazare of Rivals.com reported that Marshall isn't settling for a Round 11 or later selection.

He isn't the most physically gifted pitcher. He stands at 6'2", 180 pounds and only throws up to 94 mph. However, he finished his senior season with a 0.58 ERA and 86 strikeouts on 60.2 innings pitched.

ESPN's Keith Law (subscription required) ranked him the 47th-best prospect in the class.

 

3. RHP Keith Weisenberg, Osceola HS; Seminole, Florida

At 6'4", 185 pounds, Weisenberg doesn't lack size. His fastball also reaches 95 mph, and he has a competent slider and changeup to go with it. He struck out 88 hitters in 64.0 innings as a senior, also recording an ERA of 1.09.

MLB.com rated him the 65th-best prospect in the class. Weisenberg is committed to Stanford, but no one has reported that he, or the following prospects on this list, aren't still considering entering the pros.

 

2. RHP Bryce Montes de Oca, Lawrence HS; Lawrence, Kansas

A few inches taller and Montes de Oca could've set his sights on the NBA draft instead. Measuring in at 6'7", 265 pounds, he's an intimidating presence on the mound.

Montes de Oca finished his senior season with an ERA of 1.45. He did that, and threw at 97 mph, after recovering from Tommy John surgery last year. He's committed to Missouri.

Law (subscription needed) rated him the 32nd-best prospect in the draft. Entering the draft, he had better odds to go in Round 1 than Round 11.

 

1. RHP J.B. Bukauskas, Stone Bridge HS; Ashburn, Virginia

Bukauskas, whom MLB.com ranked the 38th-best prospect in the draft, also had better odds.

He doesn't look as physically gifted as Montes de Oca. Bukauskas only stands at 5'11", 180 pounds, but he throws 100 mph.

Bukauskas used that heat to go 8-0 as a senior, five of which were shutouts. He also recorded 88 strikeouts, 18 of which were in a single game. He's committed to North Carolina.
