While the MLB Draft will still take place starting today and ending tomorrow (June 10-11), it will not be the draft we have become accustomed to. Shortened from 40 rounds over three days to a scant five rounds over two days due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has swept the globe. the draft will also be similar to what the NFL did in terms of making it a more virtual experience as opposed to having a bunch of analysts and team officials in a single studio.

Fans are fortunate in some respects, though, as they will be able to see coverage of the draft from either ESPN or MLB Network when it comes to TV coverage. If streaming coverage online is more your speed, coverage will also stream on MLB.com. Below you will find all of the details you will need to watch the first round, which will occur tonight, or rounds 2-5 which will start at 5 pm on Thursday.
