Perfect Game report on 15th rounder Christian Santana:

---

132. Christian Santana, rhp, American Heritage HS
R-R, 6-3/210, Hialeah, Fla.
College Commitment: Florida International

Santana is a young right hander who won't turn 18 years old until after the draft but who has a strong but still very projectable build that is ideal for a pitching prospect. He has a full, loose arm action and a high 3/4's arm slot and has learned to repeat his mechanics much better this spring than he has previously demonstrated. Santana's fastball has been up to 94 mph this spring and he's maintained his velocity well while showing an improved ability to throw strikes to different spots. Santana's curveball has also become more consistent in both spin and release and become a legitimate second weapon for him.

Perfect Game report on 16th rounder Justin Bullock:

---

353. Justin Bullock, rhp, South Granville HS
R-R, 6-2/200, Creedmoor, N.C.
College Commitment: North Carolina State

Bullock just concluded one of the more impressive four-year varsity careers in the 2017 class as a two-way player, going 11-1, 0.55 on the mound with 124 strikeouts in 63 innings and hitting .476-11-46 with 16 doubles in 30 games. His career totals are 37-9, 1.49 on the mound and .436-30-131 at the plate.

Bullock will be a primary pitcher at the next level, although the possibility of his playing two-ways at North Carolina State certainly exists. He throws from a complex, multi-part arm action and delivery that has plenty of energy in it but his athleticism enables him to hold those mechanics together well. Bullock's fastball generally works in the 89-91 mph range and will top out at 93, while he does a good job throwing strikes with a big breaking mid-70's curveball and fairly advanced changeup.

Workman's father, Widd, was a third round pick out of Arizona State in 1996 as a right handed pitcher, marking the fourth time he'd been draft since graduating high school in 1992, in part because he was draft eligible during his two-year LDS mission.

Ugh... I graduated HS and College in 1992/1996. So this could've been my kid that was just drafted... I feel old.

Perfect Game report on 17th rounder LG Castillo:

---

402. Leugim Castillo, of, Lancaster HS
R/R, 6-3/215, Lancaster, N.Y.
College Commitment: Oklahoma

Castillo is a superb athlete who is listed at 225 pounds for football, where he was an All-State selection at wide receiver and also punted and returned kicks, but also runs a 6.5 sixty. He has huge strength in his right handed swing in baseball and can hit the ball as hard as any player in the class.

Despite this, Castillo falls firmly into the category of players who need much more seasoning before they try their hand at professional baseball. He has a very arm oriented swing at the plate that incorporates very little lower half for either bat speed or timing and has young left field tools and fundamentals on defense.

He's not going to sign, but nonetheless Perfect Game's report on 19th rounder Noah Campbell:

---

311. Noah Campbell, ss, Cardinal Gibbons HS
S-R, 6-1/190, Durham, N.C.
College Commitment: South Carolina

Campbell is a switch-hitter who is currently much better from the left side of the plate and by the end of last summer, where he was a regular at major events, was hitting left handed even against left handed pitchers. His left handed swing is strong with very good bat speed and plenty of gap power and Campbell's 55/60 grade running speed enables him to beat out hits from the left side and take extra bases. Campbell had a strong spring offensively, hitting .478-3-21 in 23 games with 15 stolen bases.

Defensively, Campbell seems to be best suited for second base at the next level or perhaps third base. His father, Darin, was drafted three times during the 1980's, including in the fifth round out of high school in 1985 and eventually signed as a 22nd rounder out of UNC in 1988 with the Indians. The elder Campbell played third base during his short professional career.

Perfect Game report from September 2016 on 20th rounder Austin Rubick:

---

20. Austin Rubick, rhp, Ventura (Ventura College/SO in 2017)
The highly touted Rubick struggled in both his freshman year at Arizona and this summer with the Halos. Despite the choppy results, there is no denying the arm talent that motivated the Indians to take him in the 27th round of the 2015 draft. Rubick has the ideal pitcher's build at 6-foot-3 and 210-pounds and his fastball works in the low-90s. Rubick has transferred to Ventura College for his sophomore year and this might be the perfect environment for him to begin to harness his big arm.

So I feel there is little doubt that we sign all 10 of our first picks.

Now 11-19 who as we know are all high schoolers, who do you think we will be able to lock up?

I'm confident in
Ward
Layer


75% to me
Lazar
Santana
Castillio
50/50
Bullock
Workman

25% or less
L. Smith

0%
Campbell

In the end we end up with
Lazor, Ward, Layer, Santana, and Castillio

Think Bullock, Workman, and Smith head off to school. Bullock could be an impact two way player at NC State and build up his stock. Smith seems like he is an Oklahoma boy whose going to be a Sooner. Workman is the hardest for me to decide on.

I'd really like to see them get Workman signed in addition to that group. It will be interesting to see how those higher picks come out with regard to the bonuses.

Well, between the lower 20 draft picks and the UDFA signings they will certainly have enough organizational filler. I wish we'd hear more on the earlier draft picks but I'm getting the sense we won't see too many of those guys sign.

Harrison and Hairston are still alive in the College World Series. They may need to know how much they will sign for before offering those 11-20 area draftees.

I think Hiura and Lutz are the dominoes that need to fall as opposed to Harrison and Hairston.

Doesn't matter if he won ACC DPOY or GG because "some scouts" say he's not good defensively due to being a tiny human being and not having speed (yet the general consensus is he has excellent instincts, but apparently that's ultimately irrelevant for their final opinion. Quickness is never mentioned by those folks either - just speed - as if they're one in the same). Don't pay attention to the fact that almost 99% of the balls he touches a play is made. Fielding/throwing with accuracy isn't related to playing defense, right?

Can't find the video of it but TCU CF/RF leadoff hitter Wade (Indians 5th rd pick) led off Bot 8 last night hitting a bullet one hopper to the backside of Hairston (shading up middle) and he made a fully stretched diving play throwing him out by a full step. That's with an arm that isn't 100% yet either. Just another example of him not being a good defender.
