The 2011 MLB Draft is only hours away, so many prognosticators are getting their last mock drafts in. Keith Law (Insider required) has released his fourth mock draft and he still sticks with Utah 1B C.J. Cron to the Colorado Rockies at No. 20. And, of course, he still mentions Hawaii 2B Kolten Wong as a possibility.
Law also throws out two other names that haven't really cropped up before with the Rockies in mock drafts before. The first is 3B Cory Spangenberg from Indian River State College. Spangenberg would be an interesting bat to add to the system, though it's questionable that he'd be able to stay in the infield. He does rate highly as a runner.
The other is Connecticut OF George Springer who was considered a top talent at the start of the year. However, there are questions over his bat (upward swing) and his ability to hit the ball hard. Still, he might be worth the risk. A 6-foot-3, 200-pound right fielder with a potential big bat would play well in Coors Field.
But Law sees Spangenberg go to the San Diego Padres at No. 10 and Springer to the Athletics at No. 18.
