2014 MLB Mock Draft 2.0

A lot has happened since the beginning of the month. We have seen two major prospects go down with Tommy John surgery, and that should shake up the draft as teams weigh the risk of taking either Jeff Hoffman or Eric Fedde, both of whom would have likely been top fifteen picks if they were healthy. While they should remain first-round picks due to the success rate of past Tommy John guys, here is how I see the board shaking up with draft day just a week away.
