Best available players remaining on Day 2

Day 1 of the 2016 Major League Baseball first-year player draft is in the books, but the draft is far from over. Nope, in MLB we get to witness 40 rounds. Moving into Day 2, the names start to become a bit more obscure, but there are still several big-name players left on the board. Let's focus on the top six left heading into the third round.

RHP Jared Horn, Vintage HS (CA)

Few players have improved their stock this spring as much as Horn. He's throwing harder than ever before -- he now sits in the 93-95 mph range regularly -- and improved his curveball to the point where it is a consistent out pitch. Horn also throws a slider and a changeup, so he has a deep repertoire for a high schooler. He offers projection at 6-foot-3 and 190 lbs., and he's long drawn rave reviews for his competitiveness and bulldog mentality. Horn is committed to Cal.

3B Drew Mendoza, Lake Mineolla HS (FL)

A two-sport athlete, Mendoza has the makings of an intriguing prospect. Currently a shortstop, he's expected to change positions soon due to his size (he's listed at 6-foot-4) and lacking defensive skills. The good news is he has the arm to hang at third, and could become a solid defender there with time. The even better news is Mendoza's bat has the potential to make him an above-average hitter―particularly if his power improves from its current gap status.

Jesus Luzardo, LHP, Douglas HS (FL)

Someone might well be getting a huge steal here. The lanky, 6-foot-3 lefty was hitting 97 this spring while reportedly sitting in the low-90s with his fastball and flashing the ability to mix in some quality off-speed stuff. So why wasn't he taken yet? Luzardo had Tommy John surgery in the third week of March, that's why. Still, he was only a high school senior this year. There's plenty of time for recovery, and his upside is huge. There's risk, too, obviously, and if he falls even lower he might end up attending the University of Miami, where he had previously committed.
