As Jim Callis predicted, the Braves took Mike Minor at 7. It’s an out-of-character pick for Atlanta in many ways, but the Braves believe in Minor, the 2008 Summer College Player of the Year. The Braves like the fact that Minor improved down the stretch when he took over the duties of calling his own pitches, and his cerebral approach should help him move quickly. Scouts who doubt Minor believe his stuff has flattened out the last year or so and believe he’s a fourth starter at best, with only plus pitchability and no true out pitch.
The Reds at No. 8 are ready to pop Alex White out of North Carolina, and the Tigers at No. 9 could be the first team to truly step out and add some drama to the proceedings.
