Here’s a quick introduction to the three prospects who could be the first name called by commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday:

Bart belted 16 home runs in 2018 and slashed .359/.471/.632 with 41 walks en route to being named both ACC Player of the Year Phil Taylor Jersey and ACC Defensive Player of the Year. If Detroit decides to pass on Bart, expect the Giants at No. 2 to take a long look at taking him as the heir apparent to Buster Mike Iupati Jersey Posey.

He has made $47 million over the last three years under his second NFL contract. He’s now due to make $34.426 million over the next three years, an average of $11.47 million — and none of it is guaranteed.

If the Falcons want to play hardball, they easily can do it. Well, Julio, we hold your rights for three more years, and then we can tag you for two more, they could say. We have you for five years, and you’d then be a free agent after you turn 35.

While the Falcons likely won’t do that, the fact that they can cannot be ignored when the time comes to figure out how the deal can be sweetened. The easiest approach would be to figure out a Gronk-style incentive package, allowing Jones to bump his subpar $10.5 million salary north by $5 million or so based on what he does this year. Ripping up the contract and giving him a new one would be much harder to justify.
