2017 MLB Draft (June 12-14)
We're in the 9th round, 275 picks in and still no takers on Greg Jones.

He's listed as the 10th best available on MLB.com's list, for what little that's worth. Lots of stuff happens behind the scenes.

Maybe he's dropping because teams think he'll opt to go to school? One can hope.

I read some that some scouts had him with an attitude,somewhat lazy and old for a high school player -19 and 3 months . Not exactly a top notch report.

I read that on his mlb.com profile as well. Might be other things going on that have helped cause his drop, but those elements almost have to be involved too.

Sounds like he needs some Mark Scalf and Randy Hood in his life.

"Old for a high school player" would matter because scouts may fear that his high school numbers are inflated I suppose? That seems like a bit of a stretch...he's 19 not 22. Either way, seems as if we have a chance to get him on campus. Good news for us.

Numbers and maybe the attitude say something about him being a old high school player. Lots of parents holding the kid back these days to give them a competitive edge over the younger players-scouts are aware of it and don't like it at all. College coaches might actually like it-it is a BS way of cheating within the rules.

CofCs Bailey Ober picked by the Twins in the 12th Round.

UNCWs Josh Roberson picked by the Marlins in the 12th as well.

Holding them back when? Kindergarten or later in school? As the parent of a young boy, there are valid reasons to delay starting school beyond an athletic advantage.

What's the slot value for Roberson? Slot value for the 315th pick by Chicago was $131k; Roberson was picked 44 spots later. That's not life changing money.

Hard to say, but I can't imagine he comes back. This is the last year where he has negotiating power. As a senior, you have to take what you get. No matter what he's offered now, it's almost a lock to be more than he gets next year, even if he's taken a few rounds higher.
