Draft Orders & Draft Dollars are set! #Nats pick #28, #29, #58 and #94 + Today’s Scrimmage

Draft orders and Draft dollars for the June 9th Rule 4 Amateur Draft are now set. The Nationals now have 4 picks within the Top 100 picks and 2 picks in the coveted Top 30.

#28 QO Comp pick for free agent Ian Desmond; Rangers forfeit 1st round pick
#29 QO Comp pick for free agent Jordan Zimmerman; Tigers forfeit 2nd round pick
#58 pick in the 2nd Round
#94 pick in the 3rd round

Top players chosen at #28 overall were Lee Smith, Charles Johnson, Colby Rasmus and a player named Ben Revere! You do even better at #29 overall as George Brett, Adam Wainwright, Bill Swift, Dave Kingman and a player named Del Unser. Also consider a player named Joe Panik who was also the #29th overall pick.

Top players chosen at #58 overall was some guy named Tony Gwynn! Also consider Jason Giambi, Rick Aguilera, Rance Mulliniks,  and some guy named Tyson Ross (Joe’s brother).

Top players chosen at #94 include David Justice, Scott Downs, Joe Smith, and Logan Schafer.

The point is you just never know what you can find as there are gems at every spot in the Top 100 picks, and you never know if you could find a Hall of Famer like Mike Piazza at Pick #1390 in the 2nd or 3rd round!
