The Twins will select the No. 1 pick in the 2017 MLB draft in less than two weeks, and it is still unclear what direction the franchise is leaning.
Derek Falvey, the Twins new chief baseball officer, has indicated there are about five prospects the front office is considering for the top pick. The short list includes Notre Dame High School righthanded pitcher/shortstop Hunter Greene, Louisville two-way star Brendan McKay, and Vanderbilt righthanded pitcher Kyle Wright.
Here is a roundup of the most recent MLB mock drafts:
• Jim Callis of MLB.com suggests the Twins have their eyes on Wright, Vanderbilt's star pitcher, for the top pick.
• Baseball America's John Manuel also picked Wright as the Twins' top pick.
• Keith Law, ESPN senior writer, predicted earlier this month the top two picks would be McKay or Greene, but on Tuesday bumped Wright to No. 1.
