MLB.com DRAFT RECAP 
Posted on August 12, 2017 at 05:01 AM.
While this year's draft was criticized as a weak at the top class, several teams were able to take a leap forward.
The top pick CF Bernardo Vizcaino 21-73-99 is a legit stud and could debut next season. They also picked up his OF partner
LF Marshall Barnes 19-63-90 in the second round. They are setting themselves up to have the best OF in the game.
Another rebuilding team that helped themselves was Oakland. Thier first pick was SP Alberto Santos 22-72-91, a 99 velo guy with 90 stamina and 81 H. He could step in next year or 2019 and many feel he has the ability to be an ace with 5 good pitches. Their second pick was RF Trey Hoff19-50-88 who may take a little longer but will get there one day. In the 5th round they got another stud OF in
RF Doug Shipley 21-64-90 who is 70 power with speed. They followed that up with SP Johnnie Laws 19-60-89 a hard thrower.
The Reds first 3 picks are 93-94 SP and an 88 RF.

TOP SLEEPERS
Immediately after the draft Detroit regretted passing up
SP Antoine Sanchez 19-59-99. This could be the best pitcher in the game one day and he went in the 5th round to SD.
They also got SP Jimmy Minor 18-60-94 in the 4th.
OAK's 5th round pick of RF Shipley 90 is awesome and when you combine it with SP Laws 89 in 6th is amazing.
TEX RF Nelson Tan 21-67-94 is a speed demon with power who will be in the bigs soon.
MIA got LHRP Geraldo Guzman 88 in the 6th round who throws 94 mph
MIL got SP Wint 88 in the 5th and C Taveras in 6th 92.
