Goldstein:

13. Chicago White Sox: The White Sox have been focused on college pitching all spring, and nothing has occurred to knock them off that position. Right-handers like Texas’ Brandon Workman and The Citadel’s Asher Wojciechowski have been in their sights over the past few months, but they probably didn’t imagine Deck McGuire falling to them. The Georgia Tech righty could go much higher, as he’s the safest pitcher in the draft, but he’s anything but an upside guy.

Pick: Deck McGuire, RHP, Georgia Tech

Here’s Deck McGuire’s video/scouting report:

Summary: McGuire may not have the highest ceiling of the pitchers in this draft class — he profiles as a No. 3 type starter — but he might be the safest college arm to choose from. He’s got a good three-pitch mix and excellent command that comes in a big, durable body. He’s always been successful and has shown the ability to compete and win even without his best stuff. While he’s not an ace in the making some teams might look for, he should be the type of advanced arm that can get to the big leagues in a hurry and be a very important innings-eater in the middle of a rotation. That might not be sexy, but it’s likely to get McGuire drafted early on Draft Day.
