A few notes on the Mock



4. Athletics: Braden Montgomery, OF, Texas A&M (No. 8)
If the Guardians don't take Bazzana, he probably becomes an Athletic. Condon and Caglianone also would be easy choices if available. If not, Oakland would peruse the rest of the top tier of college bats: Montgomery (who broke his right ankle in the NCAA Super Regionals), Wetherholt and Wake Forest first baseman Nick Kurtz.

Schloss acted like a bozo on his way out, but the guy could turned out a massive roster. We got enough depth right now for a top draft class and a top returning roster

4. Oakland Athletics
Pick: Braden Montgomery, RF, Texas A&M
This is where there starts to be more variability. I think the dream scenario for Oakland is for Condon or Wetherholt to go first, then for Cags and Burns to go two and three in some order, leaving Bazzana for the taking at pick four. I think they’d prefer Bazzana to Wetherholt if both were available here. Nick Kurtz has been mentioned, though I have other people telling me he’s falling. But the most frequent industry chatter has Braden Montgomery with Oakland. If there’s a trend in Oakland’s early selections, it’s less about a type of player they’re into and seemingly more about location, with a preference for guys in the Southwest or on the West Coast (Jacob Wilson, Max Muncy, Daniel Susac, Henry Bolte, Cole Miller, Denzel Clarke). Montgomery spent two years at Stanford and one at A&M.
