Nick Kurtz from Wake should be the pick. Big power bat

I think it's going to depend on whether Wetherholt keeps growing into his power and whether he shows he can stick at SS or if he'll need to move to 2B/3B. IF he does both of those, he's the clear #1. If either isn't (especially if he looks like he needs to move off of SS) I think Kurtz is more likely. Only complication there being that with the Civale trade, the hope is that 1B is blocked for the next few years by Manzardo. So then whether Kurtz is athletic enough to be at least average defensively in RF/LF becomes a big deal. I'd love it if Wetherholt shows he can stick at SS, because his batting eye is SPECIAL. Like, we're talking about "constant competitor for highest BA in baseball during his prime" level good hit tool. If he can stick at SS and have above average power, that's a super super skill set.
