At minimum, as close as Posey was coming out of the draft.
More likely, assuming recovery, about where Ryan Zimmerman was at (up for good by September)

I was mentioning it more as something to think about, but I highly doubt he gets past 1-2. Granted, if we fire-sale, that spot might be a reality.

Any way you slice it, the top 5 (if not top 10) guys will all be blue-chip prospects.

If that's the case, just sell off Reynolds. It'll help us tank it, and we get a good return in a spot that will be occupied in the near future.
Get some pitching. Aim for 2012.

This is the key i think to this years draft in terms of the Dbacks. If we are in of those 5 spots there is an extremely good chance we'd get to select an elite talent that on other years could have gone first overall.

Jack Armstrong is considered by everybody to have top 10 stuff right now but i think his main problem is inconsistency. His fastball is top notch, he's got two above average off speed pitches and a developing change but his inconsistency and poor location is a serious problem. Still id predict him to go top 15 at the moment. In terms of the the Dbacks he might come into consideration for their pick near the top of the draft if he brings his stuff together and has an excellent spring. His problems are compounded in this years draft by the great depth of top class college pitchers with Gerrit Cole, Matt Purke, Sonny Gray, Trevor Bauer all rated higher then him so in all likelihood a top 15 pick is more realistic for a resurgent Armstrong.

I only saw a bit of footage of Anthony Meo when i was looking to see something of our 5th round pick this year Cody Wheeler who also pitched for Coastal Carolina. That article is pretty spot on with Meo with Meo in that all his of reputation relies on his fastball with no meaningful secondary pitch in his arsenal. Likely a reliever.
