With the Rays boasting two picks in the compensation round, and the Royals three (two for free agents, one competitive balance pick), both teams are expected to do over-slot deals with players after the first round ends. Which means some names you might expect to see below are absent but will get first-round money at a later selection.
1. Detroit Tigers: Casey Mize, RHP, Auburn
Although Al Avila & Co. have been spotted all over the country -- seeing Joey Bart, Jarred Kelenic, Nick Madrigal and I assume the insides of lots of airport terminals -- the industry consensus still seems to be that Mize, the best player in the class, will go No. 1 on Monday.
