Atlanta Braves 2016 Draft Board

2016mlbdraftWho will the Atlanta Braves pick in the upcoming 2016 MLB First Year Player Draft on June 9? With the third overall pick, Atlanta has a chance to add significant talent to their already strong stable of prospects.

In preparation for the draft, and the eagerly anticipated No. 3 overall pick, I’ve compiled a list of the top mock drafts from the major prospect outlets around the internets. I will add to this list as the draft nears, but already we can see a lot of discrepancy about who Atlanta will pick. Two high school pitchers keep getting listed repeatedly, as Baseball America has been consistent about picking Riley Pint for Atlanta, while Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com has repeatedly picked Jason Groome.
