SB Nation Mock MLB Draft Includes 2 Hokies

New, comments

John Sickles from SB Nation's Minor League Ball release a mock draft for the first round and first supplemental round for the 2010 MLB Draft today. Two Virginia Tech players, Jesse Hahn and Austin Wates, were included. He considered "signability, projected budgets, and past drafting patterns" for each team in his mock draft.

In the first round, Sickles has Hahn going 16th to the Chicago Cubs:

There are some injury issue with Hahn but kidney stones are a temporary problem and the Cubs are known to take some risks in the first round.

Last week, SB Nation's Andy Seiler of MLB Bonus Baby had Hahn going 21st to the Minnesota Twins in his mock draft.

In the supplemental round, Sickles has Wates going 49th to the Texas Rangers:

Like (West Virginia's Jedd) Gyorko, Wates seems a logical pick for the Rangers considering their number of picks and their financial situation. He's toolsy and flashes enough skills to slot here.

The MLB Draft starts June 7. Be sure to keep an eye on Minor League Ball and MLB Bonus Baby for coverage of the draft and to see where Virginia Tech's players might end up. The Hokies will likely have their highest selected play since 2002 (when Joe Saunders went 12th overall to LAA) this season.
