The Washington Nationals have many picks in the first round of the 2011 MLB Draft, with the No. 6 overall pick being the most important. With just three days to go until draft day on June 6, the Nationals appear to be targeting Kansas outfielder Bubba Starling with the No. 6 overall pick, at least according to Frankie Piliere of FOX Sports.
Lots of draft buzz today obliterating much of my mock. Sources telling me the Nats have zoned in on Bubba Starling at #6 #MLBDraft
A two-sport star, Starling is a five-tool outfield prospect and the kind of guy scouts love. The only issue with the Nationals drafting him is that they need pitching, though they have plenty of other picks to fill that void.
