Mariners: Logan Gilbert, RHP

Shout out to the aforementioned Cal Raleigh for amassing 4.3 WAR, but we have to go with M’s first round out of Stetson’s this one. The 6-foot-6 right-hander has established himself as a major league starter and regularly pitches to Raleigh.

Mets: Jarred Kelenic, OF

Opinions about December 555 The trade that sent Kelenic (and four others) to Seattle for Robinson Canó and Edwin Díaz may ebb and flow forever, but for now, the outfielder’s recent rise still makes him a New York’s best player 469 Draft class.
