Q: Which players drafted in the first or sandwich rounds will become their team’s No. 1 overall prospect as soon as they sign?
A: … In fact, after the top three choices, I only see two more draftees who would immediately become their organization’s best prospect. I believe in Florida Gulf Coast lefthander Chris Sale’s (No. 13, White Sox) durability and ability to remain a starter, so I’d take him over Tyler Flowers and Dan Hudson with the White Sox. I have no worries about Arkansas third baseman Zack Cox’s (No. 25, Cardinals) power or ability to remain at the hot corner, so I’d choose him over Shelby Miller. However, both of those are close calls and there are a number of clubs that did have concerns about Sale and Cox.
