All-Mock Drafts Have O’s Taking Jameson Taillon

 Every major “MLB Mock Draft” has the O’s taking High School flame thrower Jameson Taillon with the 3rd overall pick in this mondays MLB Amatuer Draft. I was kinda hoping the O’s would take a position player. It seems like every year the O’s have to take a pitcher. But according to many scouts, Taillon is a “Cant-Miss” pitching prospect. He throws in the 94-97mph range at ease, sometimes heating baseballs in at 99mph.

The 1st overall pick will be no-brainer with C Bryce Harper going to the Nationals. But the #2 pick is where this gets tricky. SS Many Machado is considered by many as the next Alex Rodriguez. He is from the Miami area, and batted .639 this past year with 12 homeruns. Im hoping somehow he falls to the O’s with the #3 pick.

In other words, it looks like Jameson Taillon will become the newest Baltimore Oriole this monday!
