No. 1 high school Draft prospect Konnor Griffin joins Pipeline Podcast

June 11th, 2024

The Men's College World Series begins Friday, and some of the top Draft prospects get another chance to solidify their Draft stocks.

On this week’s edition of the Pipeline Podcast, Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Jason Ratliff discuss the prospects heading to Omaha and set their eyes on the MLB Draft Combine, which kicks off on Monday in Phoenix.

The crew dives into the latest first round mock draft, which includes some notable names moving up the rankings board. One of those names, Konnor Griffin (No. 9), joins the podcast to talk with Callis. Griffin is the top-ranked high school prospect and currently is projected to land right outside the top 10 of the Draft, going No. 11 to the Tigers.

The conversation then shifts to Japanese teen sensation Rintaro Sasaki, who is making his U.S. debut in the MLB Draft League before he competes collegiately with Stanford next season. Sasaki brings massive power to the Trenton Thunder after producing a Japanese record 140 home runs as a high schooler.

The episode wraps up with a question from the mailbag exploring the biggest locks in the first round of the 2024 Draft.
