38) Zach Kokoska, OF, ACL: .395/.458/.535, 164 wRC+, 6.3 BB%, 12.5 K%, 1 HR, 8 SB
Went later in the 2021 draft because he was a senior but the Rockies got a steal in Kokoska.
The former Kansas State star has great contact skills and hits the ball well. Kokoska should be a quality corner outfield defender, too.
2022 Projected Affiliate: Fresno Grizzlies (Single-A)
39) Nick Bush, LHP, A+/AA: 3.71 ERA, 3.50 FIP, 1.28 WHIP, 24.8 K%, 5.8 BB%
A pitcher in close proximity to MLB, Bush has performed respectably at every level since being taken in the 8th-round of the 2018 draft.
Bush has a great curveball and impressive command of his less-than-flashy arsenal. Overall, there’s a swingman profile and his stuff could tick up in the bullpen.
2022 Projected Affiliate: Albuquerque Isotopes (Triple-A)
40) Julio Carreras, 3B, A: .254/.306/.392, 82 wRC+, 5.9 BB%, 25.2 K%, 7 HR, 15 SB
Carreras had been steamrolling competition until this year. While things could’ve been worse, Carreras struggled mightily until recording a 116 wRC+ between July 31st and the end of the season.
The hope is the soon-to-be 22-year-old can rebound and flash the power-speed combo he showed early in his career.
2022 Projected Affiliate: Spokane Indians (Advanced-A)
