About draft

I’m Jonathan Mayo and I’ve been toiling for
MLB.com since April 1999. Each year, we get bigger and better
at covering the draft. This blog is part of the next step in
expanding our coverage. As I get information about how the
draft is taking shape, you’ll read about it here first. My
son, Ziv, will be eligible for the draft in 2017, though I’m
already telling scouting directors he’ll be a tough sign
because I’d like him to get a college education first…


Prospects, dizzy bat races, politics (which
one of these is not like the other?)
