Max Wieters. But I think he'll convert to become an OF rather than a C since his 6'6'' stature won't help him longevity behind the plate, but he has a grade A arm. He takes walks and doesn't strike out a lot which is surprising.

ask BA, jim callis top 10 projection

With the draft a month away, how would you project the first 10 picks as of today?

This is still more informed speculation than anything close to being set in stone, as teams still are working on signability and bearing down on their targets at the top of the draft. I'm starting to hear rumblings that more teams in the top 10 may be willing to exceed slot money. The Royals are worried about talent and not money at No. 2. The Pirates would really like a hitter at No. 4, and the best hitters available may all be Scott Boras clients. Orioles owner Peter Angelos never has splurged much on the draft, but Baltimore picks at No. 5 and then not again until No. 130. Not having second- or third-round picks saves the O's $900,000 in slot money they could pour into their top choice.

Here's my most educated guess as of today:

1. Devil Rays: David Price, lhp, Vanderbilt.
Tampa Bay has narrowed its focus to three players, and other clubs would be shocked if they don't take Price.
2. Royals: Max Scherzer, rhp, Fort Worth Cats.
Guessing that the Luke Hochevar scenario repeats itself, though Scherzer still has thrown in just one game so far.
3. Cubs: Josh Vitters, 3b, HS/California.
Scouts continue to rave about Vitters' bat, and Chicago's interest hasn't waned.
4. Pirates: Matt Wieters, c, Georgia Tech.
Pittsburgh needs bats, not pitchers, and Boras may not scare them away from the top college position player.
5. Orioles: Ross Detwiler, lhp, Missouri State.
Wieters and North Carolina State righthander Andrew Brackman could be fits if money isn't a concern.
6. Nationals: Rick Porcello, rhp, HS/New Jersey.
There's a natural connection with scouting director Dana Brown, who lives in New Jersey.
7. Brewers: Mike Moustakas, 3b/c, HS/California.
Milwaukee has done well recently taking hitters high in the draft (Prince Fielder, Rickie Weeks, Ryan Braun).
8. Rockies: Jason Heyward, of, HS/Georgia.
Also could be tempted by a college lefty such as Detwiler or Clemson's Daniel Moskos.
9. Diamondbacks: Daniel Moskos, lhp, Clemson.
Has moved into Clemson's rotation and shown he can stay in that role as a pro.
10. Giants: Beau Mills, 3b/1b, Lewis-Clark State (Idaho).
Putting up crazy numbers for an NAIA powerhouse, with .468-30-105 totals through 52 games.

Clearly Callis doesn't take into account that those teams, small market teams, may shy away from these Boras clients.
