We told you last week that couple of clubs drafting in the Top 10 were strongly considering players that won't rank in that range when the latest Top 100 is released on Monday evening, which leads us to our first mid-season question.

1. Why would the Kansas City Royals take Chris Sale or Yasmani Grandal at No. 4 if neither player is ranked in the Top 5?

It's likely a combination of factors. KC could actually have both players ranked within or very near the Top 5 -- and they have a pretty good idea those two, and any others they strongly consider at that spot would sign for a better price than players that may be ranked higher on their board that may still be available.
