RE: 2017 MLB Draft
Nationals take Raquet in the third round, 103rd overall. MLB.com had this to say about him:

"Raquet is considered one of the best college lefties in the Mid Atlantic region thanks to a fastball that hits 96 mph and feel to spin a breaking ball. But the William and Mary southpaw would be even more highly regarded if he did a better job throwing strikes. Raquet profiles as a reliever."

Slot value for the 103rd pick is a $522,300 signing bonus.

With how terrible the Nats bullpen is right now, and nothing exciting in the system, it's a great time to join the organization.

Blue Jays take Cullen Large in the fifth round with the 159th overall pick.

MLB.com had this to say:
"Large was a bat-first second baseman for William and Mary, and that's what he projects to be at the next level. A left-handed hitter with below-average speed, Large performed well at the plate for three seasons. He doesn't project any plus tools, but a team will take a chance on his bat."

Baseball America says this:
"“…[H]e is a solid athlete whose calling card is his bat. Some scouts give him above-average raw power, and he has a chance to get to it because of his feel for hitting. He’s comfortable working deep counts, isn’t afraid to draw a walk and can drive balls to both gaps… He’s a switch-hitter with sneaky pop from the left side. Large’s range and hands are fringy and he should become an an average defender at second.”

Slot value for the 159th pick is a $302,100 signing bonus.

RE: 2017 MLB Draft
The Nats scouts seem very high on Raquet

Scouting Director Kris Kline said he was surprised Nick Raquet fell to them where he did. Thinks he projects back end of the bullpen.

So, they are almost at 1000. That means there are only, what, about 5000 more picks to go...
