MLB Draft 2011 Prospects: Dylan Bundy Could Get $7 Million; Danny Hultzen Moving Up

Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated has a couple notes on the upcoming 2011 MLB Draft, in which the Pirates have the first overall selection. He quotes a couple folks around the game saying that Oklahoma high school pitcher Dylan Bundy's $30 million demands are ridiculous, but notes that Bundy could get $6-7 million, which would still be a pretty serious chunk of change. Bundy has been connected to the Pirates, but is probably a less likely selection than Rice's Anthony Rendon, UCLA's Gerrit Cole or Virginia's Danny Hultzen.

Speaking of Hultzen, Heyman notes that he's "moving up in the draft." He has widely been seen as a top-five overall pick for the past several weeks, and it's tough to move up much from that, but Hultzen is certainly someone who could benefit from the uncertainties associated with Rendon (injuries), Cole (bouts of ineffectiveness) and Bundy (high school pitcher). The closer we get to the draft without there being a clear-cut No. 1 pick, the more attractive someone like Hultzen probably looks. 

Here's a good profile of Hultzen.
