UNLV Baseball: 2019 MLB Mock Draft Projections For Bryson Stott


ESPN’s Keith Law:

13. Minnesota Twins: Bryson Stott, SS, UNLV

I’ve heard the Twins connected to an array of names too, including Matthew Lugo from Puerto Rico, but other teams believe the Twins are more likely to go college with their first pick (Stott, Hoese) and go for upside prep kids with subsequent picks.

The Big Lead:

13. Minnesota Twins: Bryson Stott, SS, UNLV

Bryson Stott could have been a top-five guy in this draft if his tools had popped as a junior this season, instead he’s shown himself to have solid-to-plus ability across the board. Stott is a good hitter, making lots of contact from the left side and showing a good approach. Most believe he’ll stick at short long term, though his arm isn’t the greatest. Stott slashed .356/.486/.599 with 10 home runs and 36 RBI this season.

The Twins have been connected to pretty much everyone, so this is a guess. At this point a well-rounded player up the middle like Stott is just too hard to pass up.


13. Minnesota Twins – Bryson Stott, SS, UNLV

Stott, Manoah, and Bishop are in the mix if they’re here. Kentucky LHP Zack Thompson and Kirby are possible, based on Mets heat at late looks.

MLB.com’s Jim Callis:

19. St. Louis Cardinals: Bryson Stott, SS, UNLV

One of the second-tier college hitters has a chance to unexpectedly drop close to the 20s, and in this scenario, it’s Stott, who also could go as high as No. 7 or 8. If he’s gone, St. Louis could turn to Busch, North Carolina State shortstop Will Wilson or Misner.

MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo:

10. San Francisco Giants: Bryson Stott, SS, Nevada-Las Vegas

Stott is having a huge year at UNLV, hitting for average while reaching double digits in home runs and stolen bases, all while walking more often than he’s struck out. And he has at least a chance to stick at short.

Bleacher Report:

10. San Francisco Giants: SS Bryson Stott, UNLV

UNLV shortstop Bryson Stott or West Virginia right-hander Alex Manoah? That has seemingly been the question for the Giants throughout the predraft process. Given the ongoing struggles of Brandon Crawford and the dearth of middle infield talent in their system, Stott makes a lot of sense. He’s hitting .369/.498/.636 with 19 doubles and 10 home runs this spring, and he should have no problem sticking at shortstop.

CBS Sports:

No. 10 San Francisco Giants: SS Bryson Stott, UNLV

As if often the case with a new front office, the Giants have been difficult to pin down this spring. They’ve been connected to, well, everything. College players, high upside high schoolers, you name it. Stott is the best college infielder in the draft class and he projects to be an impact hitter with enough defense to stick at short. Mock drafting is never easy after the first few selections. I am even less certain about this pick than I normally would be. The Giants are keeping things that close to the vest.
