Miami Hurricanes catcher Yasmani Grandal was 4-for-7 versus Georgia Tech on Friday and Saturday, including two doubles and two home runs. He's up to .427/.548/.772 (BA/OBP/slugging) with 12 homers and 21 doubles on the season after a 2-for-4 performance Saturday. So how much more can Grandal improve his draft stock?

That depends on whether the Kansas City Royals are serious about tabbing the switch-hitter at No. 4. We've yet to hear anything connecting the Baltimore Orioles, Pittsburgh Pirates or Washington Nationals (the top three picks) to Grandal, so No. 4 is probably as good as it gets. But if the Royals choose to go in another direction, it will be interesting to see where Grandal lands.
