    Teams of posters here:

    7. Cubs: Jace Jung, 2B, Texas Tech (No. 7)
    Heís a little dinged up right now, but the left-handed bat is legit. In this first mock, he goes one spot ahead of where his brother Josh went in 2019 (No. 8 to the Rangers).

    11. Mets: Daniel Susac, C, Arizona (No. 10)
    Some think Susac goes ahead of both Berry and Cross, and heís certainly performed (.372/.429/.607) while playing a premium position. The Mets might be really happy if he lands here.

    14. Mets: Cole Young, SS, North Allegheny HS, Pa. (No. 18)
    They got a college bat at a premium position with their first pick (compensation for not signing Kumar Rocker), now they can get a high school bat at a premium position, having shown an affinity for prep hitters in the past (Pete Crow-Armstrong, Brett Baty, Jarred Kelenic).

    18. Reds: Chase DeLauter, OF, James Madison University (No. 12)
    Not all scouts are believers in DeLauterís hit tool at the next level, but he hit, and with power, on the Cape. Itís hard to figure out where he might land because a broken foot cut his season short way too early.

    22. Cardinals: Kumar Rocker, RHP, No school (No. 31)
    He has to go somewhere around here, right? No, seriously, Iím asking, because even with all of the injured college arms, Rockerís stock might be the biggest mystery in this yearís Draft.

    26. White Sox: Zach Neto, SS, Campbell (No. 26)
    For four straight years (2016-19), the White Sox took a college bat in the first round. Neto has the chance to stick at short and has hit his way into first-round consideration with a .373/.493/.682 line.
