Monday Draft Notes

*Baseball America's Jim Callis posted his Mock Draft 4.0: Mark Appel. However:
Buxton appears to be the preference of the team's baseball decision-makers and would be Plan B if a deal with Appel falls apart.

*Chicago Tribune's Phil Rogers says Correa is gaining momentum, but not enough for the Astros to bypass Appel or Buxton. Astros Puerto Rico-based scout Joey Sola said Correa was the best Puerto Rican prospect since Carlos Beltran. A Rockies scout says Correa is a cross between Beltran and Alex Rios.

*Keith Law's (Insider-Only) final Top 100 draft prospects has Buxton #1, followed by Correa, Gausman, and Appel.

*Sports Illustrated's Dave Perkin's mock draft has the Astros taking Appel, saying it's the safest option.

*UPDATE: Jon Heyman has an unsubstantiated rumor that the Astros will take Appel, and the Twins will take Buxton.

If Heyman says Appel, that makes me feel good about it being Buxton.
