The Los Angeles Dodgers are the proud holders of the No. 18 overall pick in the 2012 MLB Draft. The first round of the draft takes place on Monday and the Dodgers will be hoping to pick up a solid prospect. The Los Angeles Angels are without a first-round pick, so they will have to stand by and wait on Monday as names are taken off the board.
In the latest mock draft at Minor League Ball, John Sickels believes the Dodgers will target pitching in the first round. Here's what he has to say:
18) Los Angeles Dodgers: The Dodgers usually go with pitching of some variety, and that doesn't seem like it is going to change this year. They are consistently linked with Ty Hensley, RHP, Oklahoma HS...but other options seem plausible as well, including Shane Watson and Travieso. Longshots: projectable California southpaw Hunter Virant, or perhaps slugger Joey Gallo if they want hitting.
