MLB.com

Just days after being taken by the Mets as the sixth overall pick in the Draft, Wisconsin high school outfielder Jarred Kelenic joined Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Tim McMaster on the Pipeline Podcast. Kelenic discusses Draft night, a conversation he had with New York outfielder Brandon Nimmo, the facility that his dad built to offset cold-weather conditions, and the player that he patterns his game after -- another cold-weather high-school outfield draftee: Mike Trout.  

The guys also break down which clubs had the best Draft, who will be the first pick to reach the Major Leagues and who will be the top Draft prospects in 2019.
