2019 MLB Composite Draft 1.0

If the draft went down within the next few hours, this is what we think the board would look like.

If you are a prospect junkie, hopeful fan of a rebuilding team, or just generally love baseball, I’ve got some great news for you: the MLB Draft is less than a month away.

This year is sure to be a spicy one. We’ve got all the elements of a good draft: hard throwing JuCo arms, compensation picks for last year’s draft drama and a shocking amount of teams who couldn’t close the deal with their picks, and potentially Kyler Murray 2.0.

Using the predictions of Johnathan Mayo of MLB.com and Keith Law of ESPN, we created the first edition of our composite mock draft. Look out for second and third versions as June 3rd draws closer.
