MLB.com - Mayo (6/2)
Michael McGreevy, RHP, UC Santa Barbara

While McGreevy has been a bit more hittable of late, his stuff has been just as good (averaging just over 92 mph with his fastball) and showing a combination of pitchability, stuff and projection.

The Athletic - Law (5/27)
Will Taylor, OF, Dutch Fork (SC) HS

Taylor is the biggest wild card in the draft -- he still hasn't really indicated whether he wants to play baseball or would rather go to Clemson to play football (as a six-foot, 175-pound receiver?), and also isn't working with an adviser yet, which is very unusual. If he does say "let's do that baseball," he's going to get $2 million-plus, and the Cubs have been strongly linked to him.

MLB.com - Callis (5/26)
Michael McGreevy, RHP, UC Santa Barbara

No college prospect in this projection has climbed boards more than McGreevy, who ranked second in NCAA D-I with a 104/10 K/BB ratio and also endears himself to teams with his pitch metrics. His polish could appeal to the Cubs, who have struggled to develop arms.

ESPN - McDaniel (5/11)
Jud Fabian, CF, Florida

Fabian was in the top half of the first round to start the year but fell because of whiff problems. Due to the high bonus expectations, he is likely to go back to Florida for the 2022 draft to prove himself again. He has trended up the last few weeks though and now is seen as likely to find a home in the middle to latter part of the first round.
