The MLB Draft doesn’t start until Monday, but Nationals GM Mike Rizzo knows who the team is going to take with the top pick. Of course, he won’t say who it just yet:
“No we are not prepared to do that yet. We are going to keep the suspense until tomorrow night. It is not fair to the other players that are possibilities. We are going to keep that under wraps.
It is not the biggest secret in the world. Until we make the pick things change often up to the draft time so we are going to keep it (to ourselves)."
Although Rizzo didn’t officially say that Bryce Harper is going to be taken with the first overall pick tomorrow, his comments should help Nationals fans sleep easier tonight. It doesn’t look like Rizzo will have a last minute change of heart.
