    2. Cody Bellinger, 1B/OF
    DOB: 07/13/1995
    Height/Weight: 6’4” 180 lbs.
    Bats/Throws: L/L
    Drafted/Acquired: Drafted in the fourth round by Los Angeles in the 2013 MLB Draft, Hamilton HS (Chandler, AZ); signed for $700,000
    Previous Ranking(s): #9 (Org.)
    2016 Stats: .263/.359/.484, 23 HR, 8 SB in 114 games at Double-A Tulsa, .545/.583/1.364, 3 HR, 0 SB in 3 games at Triple-A Oklahoma City

    The Good: Big kid, big raw, big leverage, big bat speed, big noise. 2016 proved he wasn’t just a Cal League mirage. Bellinger’s not a traditional corner masher either. He’s lean and athletic and has even been spotting Tulsa and OKC in center field from time to time. The power potential is plus-plus, He could win some gold gloves at first base if that’s his ultimate home.
    The Bad: Bellinger can sell out to get to that big raw power, and there are potentially big strikeout numbers to go with the big dongs. Minor league arms will pitch around his big bat, but his actual approach lags behind the raw walk totals. He will expand the zone with two strikes. He’s not a center fielder, although he should be able to play some corner outfield as well.
    The Irrelevant: Five players have played at least 20 games at both first base and center field in the same season this decade: Austin Romine, Wil Myers, Scott Van Slyke, and John Mayberry.
    The Role:
    OFP 60—First-division first baseman
    Likely 55—Above-average first baseman

    The Risks: Normally this is the spot where I gravely intone about the profile issues with a first base prospect. How the power really has to play in order to achieve that OFP. And all that applies here as well. But man, it sure looks right.
    Major League ETA: Late 2017
    Ben Carsley’s Fantasy Take: I personally prefer Josh Bell because of his floor, but if you want to argue that Bellinger is the best first base prospect, I’ll listen. Bellinger has big-time power and big-time production, and while the strikeout issues are real so is the upside. He might only hit .240 or .250, but Bellinger could smash 30 bombs a year. That might come in the OF instead of at 1B, but if that’s the case you won’t be complaining.
    And Sickels

    2) Cody Bellinger, 1B-OF, Grade A-: Age 21, fourth round pick in 2013; hit .271/.365/.507 with 26 homers, 60 walks, 94 strikeouts in 410 at-bats between Double-A and Triple-A; 60-grade power from left side, along with a high walk rate; has occasional contact troubles and batting average may not hold up in the majors; however if he can hit .250 the OBP and power will carry him; excellent defensive first baseman and can also play corner outfield if needed without hurting you. ETA late 2017.

    That's what happens when you ignore your roster for long periods of time my Mexican friend.

    Anyone want Gavin Floyd (Has a green flag) for a 2018th 6th round pick? Was decent until his arm died last year.

    In theory... He made an illegal pick last night at 4 am not technically within a window and not at a time where he was likely to be advised of his error in time for him to make another selection. There are some who feel like that should invalidate his window anyways. Or perhaps his window was already invalidated when he skipped his last pick.

    I would skip it. No need to hold up the draft for a whole day at this point because one dumbass made an illegal pick.

    Spittin' has already said multiple times to skip him, and at this point in the draft, there's about 50 guys all with the same value.

    If Connor wanted to and was pro-active enough he could scoop up a bunch of 6th rounders dirt cheap and get some decent lottery tickets into his system.
