:: 2017 MLB Draft coverage ::

Hunter Greene headlines this year's Draft class and has long been a candidate to be selected with the No. 1 overall pick. Should that occur, the 17-year-old high school right-hander from Nortre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, Calif., would become the first prep right-hander taken No. 1 overall in the history of the Draft. He recently spoke with Mayo about his life both on and off the field as part of an ongoing, four-part series.

But while scouts view Greene as the most electric talent on the board, it's Vanderbilt right-hander Kyle Wright who's said to be the current favorite to go No. 1 overall. That pick belongs to the Minnesota Twins this year for the first time since 2001, when they selected Joe Mauer from of the Minnesota prep ranks.

Wright is considered the current front-runner to go 1-1, but the club is also said to be looking at Greene as well as Whiteville (N.C.) High School lefty MacKenzie Gore, Louisville two-way star Brendan McKay, JSerra Catholic (Calif.) High School shortstop-outfielder Royce Lewis and Virginia first baseman Pavin Smith.
