MLB Mock Draft 2012: Nationals May Take Shortstop Deven Marrero Of Arizona State

With the 2012 MLB Draft just around the corner on Monday night, baseball experts are making their final projections on where prospects will end up. John Sickels of Minor League Ball put out his final mock draft on Sunday, and he has the Washington Nationals taking shortstop Deven Marrero out of Arizona State.

Here is his reasoning behind the pick.

"Rumors here are vague and contradictory and what the Nats do depends in great measure on what happens ahead of them. I think something outside the box could happen here (Giolito? Nick Travieso? Brian Johnson? Clint Coulter? Mitch Nay? Addison Russell?). Deven Marrero and Pierce Johnson are the two best college guys left."

With the lack of big-time prospects in this draft, it will be interesting to see where players will end up.
