  • JJ Wetherholt Is Back & Nick Kurtz Won’t Stop Hitting Home Runs

    Carlos and Peter hop back on the draft podcast to talk about players up and down the board. They get things started by talking about JJ Wetherholt’s return to the lineup for West Virginia last weekend and try and think through where he fits on the draft board now. Is he fully back into the 1-1 mix that he started the season at or have players like Charlie Condon and Travis Bazzana created a gap?

    And how about Nick Kurtz? The Wake Forest slugger has gotten back to his power-hitting ways over the last two weeks and all of the sudden looks like the exact sort of hitter we expected to see. Can he rejoin the top-of-the-draft conversation as well and just how insane has his home run streak been?

    The two move further down the board to discuss another big power name, but one without the same refined offensive approach as Kurtz: Mississippi State outfielder Dakota Jordan. The two marvel at his bat speed, talk about his improvements this spring and dig into some of the details about his overall offensive approach and hit tool questions.

    Next the two talk about Texas shortstop Jalin Flores as a potential salve for the 2024 class' lack of impact shortstops and wonder about how real his loud spring performance is thus far.

    Finally the two close by talking about ECU righthander Trey Yesavage, who continues to post weekly, rack up strikeouts, limit his walks and deploy a deep pitch mix with impressive feel to command the baseball.

    Time Stamps

    (3:45) JJ Wetherholt’s return to action

    (11:00) Are Wetherholt and Nick Kurtz back in the 1-1 convo?

    (14:30) Nick Kurtz’s home run streak

    (23:30) Mississippi State OF Dakota Jordan

    (31:30) Should we talk more about Texas SS Jalin Flores?

    (40:45) Trey Yesavage’s SP3 case in the class

  • 2024 Bonus Pool Talk + Walking Through Our First Staff Draft

    Carlos and Peter hop on the pod to talk draft.

    The two discuss the recently announced slot values and bonus pools for the 2024 draft. How does having more than $18 million dollars in pool money impact a team like the Guardians picking 1-1? Other teams like the D-backs have a relatively large amount of money to work with considering their first pick, while the Cardinals are on the other end of the spectrum with relatively little inside the top 10.

    After that the two talk through a staff draft that they did with JJ Cooper, Geoff Pontes and Ben Badler. Which picks were surprises? What was our thought process for each of our individual picks? And how does the class seem to be shaping up now? 

    Finally Peter gives a preview of the 2026 college class after dropping his first ranking of that group on the site this week.
