Podcast: 'Dugout Blues' episode 38 - Kiley McDaniel, MLB Draft, prospects

On this episode of "Dugout Blues," Jared Massey (Dodger Diamond) and I record have Kiley McDaniel of Scouting Baseball on to talk about some Dodger prospects and the upcoming MLB Draft.

Jared and Kiley go back and forth while I chime in occasionally. We talk mainly about the big guys at Chattanooga -- Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson, Zach Lee and Chris Reed.

After that, we talk a lot of MLB Draft. The draft is three weeks from tomorrow. The Dodgers hold the No. 18 pick (just like last year) and could go in any number of directions.

McDaniel has the Dodgers selecting Indiana State left-hander Sean Manaea in his first mock draft. Manaea was originally thought of as a potential Top 10 pick, but decreased velocity and potential injury concerns have caused him to drop.

After McDaniel takes off (to record his own podcast, "Marginal Prospects"), Jared and I talk about some intriguing draft prospects such as prep right-hander Hunter Harvey (son of Bryan Harvey), prep catchers Jon Denney and Nick Ciuffo and, a potential wild card, Fresno State outfielder Aaron Judge.

To close, well, we actually don't answer listener questions this week (blame Jared). Our sincerest apologies. We'll get to all the questions on the next episode.
