2013 MLB Draft Profile: Jordan Paroubeck, OF

A family friend of Barry Bonds, Jordan Paroubeck has power to burn and plenty of other tools.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Devin Williams, RHP, MO HS

A highly athletic and surprisingly advanced right hander, Williams is what scouts call "one to dream on."

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Michael Lorenzen

Michael Lorenzen is the best defensive outfielder in the entire draft. Can he hit enough to showcase his defensive talents?

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Colin Moran, 3B, UNC

Colin Moran doesn't fit the typical number one overall pick profile, but will that stop the Astros from taking him if he agrees to sign for a huge discount?

Draft Discussion: Why is David Carr Here?

A little bit of everything in our final edition of the monthly discussion about who the Astros will select number one over. We cover everyone associated with the first selection, NFL comparisons and developmental staff.

2013 MLB Draft Profile- Chris Okey, C, FL HS

Chris Okey is not quite what you would expect in the ideal catcher, which is exactly why I like him so much

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Reese McGuire, C, WA HS

McGuire is the top catcher on many boards this year, what are his strengths?

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Dominic Smith, 1B, CA HS

An athletic power bat from Southern California with the ability to play first base, outfield, pitcher, or even catcher, Dominic Smith has swung his way into the discussion for top ten.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Jon Denney, C

Jon Denney is the best-hitting catcher in this year's draft. It'd be a dream come true if he magically fell to the Astros in the second round

UPDATED MLB Draft 2013 Profile: Rowdy Tellez, 1B

Rowdy Tellez is a big dude with big power. The left-handed firstbaseman is an intriguing candidate for the Astros in the second or third round.

UPDATED: 2013 Draft Profile: Jan Hernandez 3B

Former teammate of first overall draft pick in last year's draft, Jan Hernandez gets frequent comparison's to Carlos Correa. What kind of player is Hernandez?

UPDATED- 2013 MLB Draft Profile- Joe Martarano, 3B

Martarano hasn't made the strides that some hoped and is a risk, but he's still a tantalizing raw talent.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Victor Caratini, 3B, MDJC

Caratini is rough on defense, but his power bat is impressive and he plays with swagger.

2013 MLB Draft Profile- Trey Michalczewski, 3B

He's far from a finished product, but Michalczeski brings plenty to be excited about.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Travis Demeritte, SS

Travis Demeritte is a legitimate candidate for the Astros second round pick.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Cavan Biggio, 3B

Son of Craig obviously has Astros fans intrigued, but he has a lot of questions as a prospect.

2013 MLB Draft Profile- Drew Dosch, 3B, YSU

Though he's not going to excite anyone, Dosch can offer plenty to a major league roster as a utility man down the line.

2013 MLB Draft Profile- Hunter Renfroe, OF, MSST

A deceptively toolsy converted catcher, Renfroe has cemented himself as a first round pick this year.

2013 MLB Draft Profile- Erich Weiss, 2B/3B, Texas

One of Texas' lone bright spots this season hit .327 for his college career, but needs to stay at second to succeed in pro ball.

2013 Draft Positional Rankings: College Pitchers

There is a lack of top of the rotation upside pitchers, but what it lacks is made up for in depth of high floor pitchers.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Jason Monda, OF, Wash.

Jason Monda is probably the lowest-ranked prospect we will profile at TCB.

The Gamecocks' Best Hitter: LB Dantzler

LB Dantzler is South Carolina's best hitter in 2013. He has a couple things working against him as far as being drafted but his improvement at the plate this year could mean big things for which ever team drafts him this year.

Take The Best Player Available

There has been a large amount of debate about who the Astros should/will take with the 1.1 pick of the upcoming draft. Take the best player available.

2013 MLB Draft Profile- Nick Buckner, OF, N. Shore

A local, toolsy outfielder could be a good option as a high upside pick for the Astros in the early-middle rounds of the draft

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Ryan Boldt, OF, HS

Ryan Boldt – a first-round talent who will probably go in the second round. Sound familiar, Astros fans? Could he be this year's Lance McCullers or Rio Ruiz?

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Justin Williams OF

Justin Williams came into 2013 as one of the top HS prospects. A mediocre spring has dropped his stock, and he's now expected to be drafted much later than originally thought.

Draft Ramblings

Subber10 gives you a brief...err extended visit into this mind when he thinks about the 2013 Draft.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Cord Sandberg, OF

Cord Sandberg is a toolsy outfield prospect, but a scholarship to play quarterback in the SEC creates a lot of uncertainty with the future of his baseball carrer.

UPDATED 2013 MLB Draft Profile: Billy McKinney, OF

Billy McKinney has one of the best present and future hit tools in this year's high school class. Even though he doesn't have All-Star upside, his bat makes him a really good prospect.

2013 MLB Draft Profile: Willie Abreu, OF, FL HS

Abreu has flown under the radar in a strong OF class, but he's one of the more balanced prospects you'll find at the position.
