It's difficult to know exactly who will be available with the Royals' pick. Word is they'd prefer a quick to the majors pitcher, which would presumably be Cole, Bauer, Hultzen, or Bundy. I assume they would pass on Rendon if he reaches them because the only way that could happen is if he didn't check out medically. Bauer is a wildcard because of his unique training regimen and high pitch counts. Should he drop, I'm still not convinced we take him because of our unwillingness to allow pitchers to work on their own programs. That said, the entire front office recently watched him pitch, I believe. The real wildcard in my opinion will be if Cole, Hultzen, Bundy, and Rendon come off the board in the first 4 picks. Assuming Bauer isn't the pick, who would it be? Starling? Matt Barnes? Jed Bradley? Archie Bradley? thoughts?
