On the evening of the first round of the 2010 MLB draft, MLB draft bloggers Jason A. Churchill and Keith Law will provide pick-by-pick analysis in the first round.
Before diving into the analysis, here are some key resources related to the 2010 MLB draft:
And now, analysis of the supplemental round:
Michael Kvasnicka, as a catcher, projects as an above-average bat. It's a very interesting pick for the Houston Astros there, since they do have former first-round pick Jason Castro in their system already.
The Boston Red Sox get a steal in both Bryce Brentz and Anthony Ranaudo. Brentz could still turn out to be the second-best college bat in the draft behind Harper, and Ranaudo, if healthy, is the best college arm in the class with the best combination of upside, probability and timetable.
Peter Tago going to the Colorado Rockies is a steal, as he's not likely to go to school. The Detroit Tigers taking Chance Ruffin with their second sandwich rounder has to be about saving money so they can go over slot for Nick Castellanos, whom they selected at No. 44.
