Baseball America and MLB.Pipeline may be the best when it comes to a week before the draft at what team is picking whom.

Yet, when it comes to going the delving in the 53 draft area (the 50 states, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and Canada) no one does it better or deeper than the Perfect Game Scouting Serivce.

The showcase business runs year round with the 2014 Perfect Game USA National Under class Main Event Showcase taking place at Jet Blue Park before New Year’s in Fort Myers, Fla. and the World Showcase began the next week.

Does this mean everyone will get drafted in the exact slot as predicted … no, but at this stage, with less than five months remaining until the June draft it gives an indication of where the scouts have players ranked …
