Only needed one more, so you're good with D'Arnaud.

Josh Lucas, Brandon McCurry and Chase d'Arnaud give you 50.

Final Tally:

27 hitters, 23 pitchers, 7 Rangers

6 Catchers, 4 1B, 3 2B, 2 SS, 3 3B, 9 OF

Bold Prediction: I will have at least 3 guys drafted after round 30 make my 25 man squad.

What’s this 25 man squad business? Thought it was a 50 man roster

50 man roster during the season in Fantrax. Take your best 25 and go to war in WIS after the season.

@HellToupee - it's hard to explain, but WIS randomly designates a bunch of players AAA eligible. All you need to know is that it's likely 3-8 of your players can be AAA eligible adding to the 25 man roster.

Its safe to assume you'll likely get 30 players.  If you get 30 eligible seasons out of your 50 picks, you are also probably ahead of the game already.

Draft time is over. Time. For. Extraction.

(I was trying to be gentle. The point is about 30-40 of these guys will make rosters)

I think I drafted better than last year but not real confident I have enough at bats to cover injuries. And with pitching you just never know.

Matt Harvey pitched 3 innings today and Paul DeJong signed a contract extension and now I think my team is good.

Post-Draft Team Review:

Catcher: Alex Avila (L), Kevin Plawecki (R), Chris Herrmann (L), Kyle Farmer (R), John Ryan Murphy (R)

Avila and Plawecki should both be slated for significant ABs. Herrmann and Murphy are both in the D-Backs system so if Avila gets hurt either or both could end up getting some time. Farmer could also end up getting ABs if Grandal gets moved by LA, as he could inherit the back-up role. 

Corner IF: Kyle Seager (L), Greg Bird (L), Cory Spangenberg (L), Tyler Austin (R)

Not a lot of depth at these positions, which is great since Bird has yet to put together anything close to a complete season. 

Middle IF: Corey Seager (L), Robinson Cano (L), Pat Valaika (R), Brendan Rodgers (R), Fernando Tatis Jr. (R), Jace Peterson (L), Garrett Hampson (R)

Feel good about this group, though Seager and Valaika are already dealing with injuries that could be problematic for a while (elbow, oblique). How much big league time do Rodgers and Tatis get? Could be a big factor in how my team does. 

Outfield: Manuel Margot (R), David Dahl (L), Jason Heyward (L), Jorge Soler (R), Keon Broxton (R), Jabari Blash (R), Jordan Patterson (L), Billy McKinney (L), Rusney Castillo (R)

Margot and Heyward are probably the only ones (injuries aside) likely to get full season ABs, though Dahl and Soler could easily be in the 400 AB+ range depending on how they play. Outside of those probably just hoping for some platoon caliber ABs.

Starters: Chris Archer (R), Jon Gray (R), Blake Snell (L), Luiz Gohara (L), Hyun-Jin Ryu (L), Tyler Chatwood (R), Zack Wheeler (R), Tyler Anderson (L), Kyle Freeland (L), Michel Baez (R)

I like the depth and upside of this group, though I'd love to have a more consistent track record ourside of Archer. 

Relivers: Tommy Khanle (R), Michael Feliz (R), Bryan Shaw (R), Joe Kelly (R), Jerry Blevins (L), Oliver Drake (R), Adam Liberatore (L), Daniel Winkler (R), Paul Sewald (L), Giovanny Gallegos (R), Josh Smoker (L), Silvino Bracho (R), Chasen Shreve (L), Scott Oberg (R), Felix Pena (R)

Similar to the starters, like the depth and feel good about innings but lack a reliable standout. Will be hoping a couple of these guys break out with good/lucky seasons. 

Pick I'd most like to do-over: Probably Dahl. He has less than half a good season in the majors and a track record of not being healthy. I lost a whole season with him last year so I almost felt compelled to draft him again to see if I could get some payoff. Others said they were going to take him around the same time so it wasn't really a reach, just one that has the potential to hurt all year. 

Pick I feel best about: Tatis Jr. in round 36, easily. Yes, he's only 19 and it's possible that he doesn't even see the majors. On the other hand, he's killing Spring Training pitching and it's not like we haven't seen young players hit in the majors before. The Padres are also likely to be terrible and he'll give the team and fan base something to be excited about when he comes up. I don't think he'll break camp with the team but it wouldn't surprise me to see him up by May either.

No idea. My last five picks were "as needed" basis. Basically just went down Roster Resource until I found a name not taken.
