Another mock, another Gorman pick. However more interesting information.

Today already saw MLB.com release a mock draft where the Braves took Nolan Gorman. Now Keith Law of ESPN does the same thing.

The MLB mock draft had some new information, and Law adds even more new information.

As expected Casey Mize of Auburn is the first pick for Detroit. This is starting out like every mock released by anyone this spring.

Then the fun starts. Instead of taking Georgia Tech catcher Joey Bart second, we have a shocker. The Giants instead take California prep right hander Cole Winn- a player who has been linked to the Braves but widely expected to come off the board no earlier than 10th.

The Phillies kill our own Gaurav’s dream of the Braves taking Bart by stealing him at third overall. Brady Singer goes to the White Sox, with the Reds taking Nick Madrigal fifth.

At six the Mets are up and don’t take the dropping Alec Bohm. Instead the Mets take Jon India, another third baseman.

The Padres are up at seven and instead of grabbing Matthew Liberatore, they grab Bohm. As I alluded to earlier there is some real talk of Bohm dropping, and the once unrealistic thought of him dropping to eight is an actual possibility. I have a hard time seeing the Padres taking the college bat over a higher ceiling prep talent, so if Bohm drops past the Mets then he could be there for the Braves.

The Braves then take Nolan Gorman, who has already been talked to death here, so I won’t go on further.

Per Law:

”Atlanta has been connected to Gorman for a while now, although I have to think it would be open to taking someone else who fell; I’ve heard the Braves with Singer and Liberatore, and to a lesser extent with Stewart. Of course, they’re automatically assumed (often without reason) to be on every Georgia high school player.”

Among players connected to the Braves previously we see Carter Stewart going 13th and Jarred Kelenic 14th. Neither Ethan Hankins nor Kumar Rocker were taken in the 30 selections.

Local prep pitcher Cole Wilcox was taken 21st and catcher Anthony Seigler 28th overall.
