DETROIT (Michigan News Source) – In just over two weeks, the Detroit Tigers will have the 11th pick in the MLB Draft. In the latest mock projections, high schoolers short Bryce Rainer and Konnor Griffin are two of the projected takes by the Tigers. Rainer is from Harvard-Westlake, Calif., and Griffin from Jackson, Miss.

Rainer is a 6’3”, left-handed batter that is committed to Texas. He is a two-way player on the mound and a shortstop. He was on the 18U USA Baseball team that played internationally this year. This spring, according to scouts, he was the best player at the National High School Invitational vaulting himself into the top half of the MLB Draft as a position player.

The MLB Draft is July 14-16 at the Cowtown Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas.
