I am proud to announce that I will be joining Perfect Game on a full-time basis starting in mid-May. Because of that, I will not be posting further updates here on 5 Tool Talk, but will keep the site around for comments at least through the draft. Click the link to learn more.

I got my first look for the 2011 season at both Trevor Bauer and Josh Osich this past weekend, both of whom show power stuff. I also got another look at LSU freshman Kevin Gausman as well as hitters Deven Marrero, Mikie Mahtook, James McCann and Dominic Ficociello.

Mock Draft 2-11-11

With the draft order finalized, I figured it was time to update my first-round projection. Anthony Rendon, Gerrit Cole, Matt Purke and George Springer continue to be considered the top four overall prospects available for this year's draft, but it is still very early for just about anything to happen between now and June.

Baseball is almost upon us, and draft day is only five months away. Several junior college programs start later this month, college baseball is just over a month away, and high school ball in the sun belt will start shortly after that. Until then, familiarize yourself with some of the names that will factor into the early rounds of the draft.
