The 2018 MLB Draft is a three-day event featuring 1,214 picks in 40 rounds. With so many picks, we’re bound to find some great names. And, oh boy, this year did not disappoint.
We don’t know whether these guys will ever make a name for themselves in the major leagues, but they have made themselves a name among the best names of the 2018 MLB Draft.
If Avila sees the Cabrera injury as the cue to consider the season over, he can start offering in earnest these half-dozen players to contenders:
I don’t know if [the attention] surprises me, Tebow said, who is hitting .245. To be honest, I don’t know if I really pay too much attention to it. Just try to go about my business and do what I came here to do.
Fleming, though, ended up spending the final five weeks of the 2017 season on Tampa Bay’s practice squad and was with the team this offseason.
The explosive receiver, who curiously scrubbed his social media feeds of Atlanta-related content earlier this year, has been working out with polarizing Hall of Famer Terrell Owens while forgoing team activities.
The fact that he’s running around with Terrell Owens has the front office uneasy, Falcons reporter D. Orlando Ledbetter said on ESPN Radio on Monday, per Pro Football Talk. Ledbetter added that the relationship between player and team is in a bad place right now.
The 29-year-old Jones, a five-time Pro Bowler, reportedly wants a new contract and recently skipped mandatory OTAs that the Falcons were anticipating he would attend.
Owens, who publicly declined his invitation to the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony, continues to get into playing shape, with a little help from Jones. On Monday, the former Bengals, Eagles and Cowboys receiver posted a video of his 40-yard dash, as Jones clocked in the time on the sidelines.
