    Interesting mock draft - Zimmer going before Jackson. I think I still want Jackson over Gordon but I'll trust the FO.

    RHP Jeff Hoffman of @ECUBaseball will have Tommy John surgery next week. Had been a probable top 4 pick in the draft before injury.

    Dang. Yeah, I'd be ok with taking him in the second round but it probably won't happen. Gioltio fell from a top 5 pick to 13. I don't think Hoffman will fall all the way to the second round.

    So Aiken, Rodon and Kolek are all pretty much locks to go in the top 4. Gordon, Jackson, Nola, Beede ... I wanted Jackson and still do.

    Tough break for Hoffman. Seems like Jackson/Gordon are the most likely choices right now.

    On a different note HS pitcher Bukauskas has sent a letter out to teams saying he will be going to college.

    Also, BA will be releasing their first mock draft of the year tomorrow. Not sure if it will behind their pay wall.

    From Darren Wolfson:

    No shock: told East Carolina RHP Jeff Hoffman is no longer in the mix for #MNTwins at No.5. Would be if lasted until No.46.

    No surprise.

    Kiley Mcdaniel's new updated top 116:

    http://sbb.scout.com/2/1400460.html

    This part was the most interesting:
    "There are already rumors that my #5 player, Nick Gordon, will cut a below slot deal with the Twins at pick #5 with his father, former big league reliever Tom Gordon, acting as Nick's advisor. Every player/advisor in this range knows they could slip to the bottom if they lose a few coin flips in split war rooms, so they are incentivized to market themselves as signable because if they slip 5-10 picks, even an over-slot deal at a lower pick would likely be for less money."

    Hmmm... makes me hope for Gordon in the 1st and Hoffman in the second... won't happen, but one can dream.

    Wow. That sucks. As Kiley Mac had Hoffman in the top tier and now that is one guy less. It also takes away one more stud pitcher.

    I plan to post the 3rd draft preview soon, so I'll reflect more on what this all means there.

    If McDaniel is right and the Twins take Gordon under slot at #5 I wonder who they will target at #46. Hoffman won't make it to #46 with how many other teams have multiple picks before us. Outside of the other draft news about Bukauskas wanting to go to college I can't name many big name hard signings this year. Obviously players will fall but there is no Ryan Boldt/Kyle Serrano this year. Maybe once the draft gets closer we will hear a few more names.

    Who are the hurt first round talents or HS kids claiming they want to go to college? Hoffman, Fischer, Bukauskas. Probably a few more.

    Crawford's new mock draft (must have been released before Hoffman news). Has Twins taking Gordon:

    I clicked on that, and it has the Cubs taking Gordon, and Twins taking Jackson?

    Luis Ortiz was a top arm but was injured to start the year but I can't see him dropping to #46. Maybe Justus Sheffield who pitched poorly and has a commitment to Vanderbilt. Dylan Cease is also a Vandy commit with a big arm but is currently resting because of an elbow that has been bothering him (good chance he has TJ).

    Those are the first three off the top of my head. With the draft being 29 days away I'm sure we will be a few more.

    I've got a fever and the only cure is more mock drafts! Anyone see the Perfect Game mock? I know its poor form to ask for pay content but I'm sick here!

    You are right. I was looking at the page before it got updated. I personally don't see the Cubs drafting Gordon but what do I know? I see Jackson as a better fit for them. Either way I would be happy with Gordon or Jackson. Getting one under slot would just be icing on the cake.
