The MLB Draft has arrived! Here is a full tracker with instant analysis for all 160 picks of the five-round affair.

Round 1

1. Detroit Tigers select Spencer Torkelson, 3B, Arizona State

Torkelson burst onto the scene after a successful collegiate showing in which he made his name heard. A strong right-handed hitter, Torkelson produces busy spray charts with his ability to hit the ball to left, center, and right field. He also possesses impressive talent in the field with his success at first base, although it is worth noting that the Tigers drafted him as a third baseman.

2. Baltimore Orioles select Heston Kjerstad, OF, Arkansas

Although a surprising pick at No. 2, Kjerstad will fit in nicely with the Orioles. A power hitter with a proven track record, he has an interesting swing. Of course, that’s not much of a concern when you blast baseballs out of the ballpark at an impressive rate. He also possesses a great arm and decent speed. This is a surprising fit for the Orioles, but it is a fit nonetheless.

3. Miami Marlins select Max Meyer, RHP, Minnesota

In another surprising move, the Marlins take a pitcher with the third pick. Meyer possesses the best slider in the entire draft while also having a fastball that reaches 100 MPH and a reliable changeup. With a tall and lanky frame, there have been some questions about Meyer’s future in baseball, but the pros outweigh the cons with this pick.

4. Kansas City Royals select Asa Lacy, LHP, Texas A&M

Lacy is a reliable pitcher with four great pitches (fastball, curveball, slider, changeup) with great power and proven success on the mound. He needs to improve his command and control but overall, he was a reliable prospect in college and should see continued success as he makes the transition to professional baseball.

5. Toronto Blue Jays select Austin Martin, OF/3B, Vanderbilt

The top third baseman in the draft, Martin has also seen success in the outfield. A pure hitter with a hot bat and decent power, the Vanderbilt product also has impressive footwork with a good arm and valuable versatility. His power could be improved, but overall, this is a steal for the Blue Jays at No. 5.

6. Seattle Mariners select Emerson Hancock, RHP, Georgia

The top right-handed pitcher in the draft is off the board as the Mariner take Georgia’s Emerson Hancock. He possesses a fastball that approaches 100 MPH in addition to a trio of secondary pitches that have been successful in fooling opposing hitters. Having drawn comparisons to former No. 1 pick Casey Mize, Hancock has a bright future ahead of him.

7. Pittsburgh Pirates select Nick Gonzalez, SS, New Mexico State

Once doubted due to his high school success coming solely against a weaker crop of opposition, Gonzalez used the Cape Cod league to put all concerns to rest. The young middle infielder is impressive in the field and at the plate with a short and compact swing. Gonzalez has continued to boast great contact and an impressive defensive IQ.

8. San Diego Padres select Robert Hassell III, OF, Independence (TN)

The first high school player off the board, Hassell is a talented contact hitter who could improve his power trait. Hassell could add some size and strength to his frame but overall possesses all-around talent across the board. He has a great arm and has proven he can succeed in the field, too.

Click here for more details

9. Colorado Rockies select Zac Veen, OF, Spruce Creek (FL)

Zac Veen at Coors Field? Yes, please. A pure hitter with incredible power, Veen has drawn comparisons to Cody Bellinger thanks to his beautiful swing and approach at the plate. Bound to scare opposing pitchers in Colorado, Veen is only improving by the day. He could add strength to improve on his strength-to-size ratio, but overall, this is a great pick for the Rockies.

Click here for more details

10. Los Angeles Angels select Reid Detmers, LHP, Louisville

The most-polished southpaw in the draft, Detmers has consistently been the leader in Louisville’s rotation. He has a strong and durable frame with an impressive repertoire of pitches. He could work on improving his velocity but when all is said and done, Detmers should progress through the minors and make his MLB debut sooner than expected.

Click here for more details

11. Chicago White Sox select Garrett Crochet, LHP, Tennessee

Crochet is a tall and lanky southpaw with a promising future in professional ball. With a vast repertoire of pitches in his arsenal, Crochet has flashed success and impressive velocity on the mound. The biggest concern is that Crochet’s delivery needs to be refined, but that isn’t a huge con and should be a simple fix.

Click here for more details

12. Cincinnati Reds select Austin Hendrick, OF, West Allegheny (PA)

Hendrick possesses raw talent and power at the plate with quick hands. He is also impressive in the field with the speed of a center fielder and the arm of a right fielder. The biggest knock on Hendrick is that some reports suggest he was inconsistent after he tinkered with his approach, but that didn’t appear to hamper his abilities too much.

13. San Francisco Giants select Patrick Bailey, C, North Carolina State

A switch-hitter with incredible defensive success behind the plate, Bailey is an interesting fit with the Giants who drafted Joey Bart at No. 2 overall in 2018. At the plate, Bailey’s top trait is power, but he has impressed in terms of contact and his ability to draw walks, too. This pick truly reflects the sentiment that teams don’t draft from an area of need but rather draft based on value.

14. Texas Rangers select Justin Foscue, 2B, Mississippi State

Foscue possesses impressive hitting—specifically contact—for a second baseman while also donning aggressiveness and power. He has good hands at second base and excels at turning double plays, but his arm and range are simply average. Foscue has a bright future ahead of him with his unique combination of power at the plate and fluidity in the field.

15. Philadelphia Phillies select Mick Abel, RHP, Jesuit (OR)

Abel is a big-bodied right-hander who becomes the first pitcher off the board. He possesses a good fastball with a nice rising action in addition to a filthy slider. With his strength due to improve in the coming years, the top concern that remains is Abel’s stamina. However, that is sure to be improved, too, as he matures from a physical standpoint.

16. Chicago Cubs select Ed Howard, SS, Mount Carmel (IL)

The best shortstop in the 2020 high school draft class, Howard is an infielder with great hands and great vision at the plate. He is a promising hitter who has also exhibited his success in the field despite a recent shoulder surgery. He has also put on a show during games with his fluidity in the field, his fantastic glovework and angles, and a high baseball IQ.

17. Boston Red Sox select Nick Yorke, 2B, Archbishop Mitty (CA)

This is a somewhat surprising pick with an interesting theory behind it as Yorke would have been a tough sign if not drafted in the first round. Either way, Yorke has plus hit potential with a solid future at the plate but some concerns on the defensive side.

Click here for more details

18. Arizona Diamondbacks select Bryce Jarvis, RHP, Duke

Jarvis is a talented pitcher and hard-worker who gained weight and added power to his delivery after working with various trainers and experts. With solid velocity and a wide repertoire of pitches, Jarvis is an underrated pick at No. 18 and will surely have a bright future in Major League Baseball.

19. New York Mets select Pete Crow-Armstrong, OF, Harvard-Westlake (CA)

Crow-Armstrong is an underrated prospect who comes from a school with a fantastic track record. The Harvard-Westlake product possesses great contact and speed plus an excellent baseball IQ. He lacks in the power department at the moment, but that will likely change once he adds strength. This is an all-around incredible ballplayer.

Click here for more details

20. Milwaukee Brewers select Garrett Mitchell, OF, UCLA

Mitchell has impressive speed and a big body as he provides incredible value to the Brewers after falling to No. 20. Power is his biggest question mark but not too big of a concern as he continues to learn and grow. The league’s worst farm system just got a steal.

Click here for more details

21. St. Louis Cardinals select Jordan Walker, 3B, Decatur (GA)

Walker possesses an impressive arm that can allow him to play both third base and the outfield. Additionally, he dons incredible power and a solid approach at the plate. The biggest knock on Walker is that there are some concerns about which position he’ll play, but that’s not a pressing concern and certainly shouldn’t hurt fans’ perception of the high school star.

Click here for more details

22. Washington Nationals select Cade Cavalli, RHP, Oklahoma

Cavalli is a risky pick here, but one that could pay off big time for Washington. He is a big kid with impressive velocity; he makes pitching look easy. The biggest concern is his command and health, which are two areas in which he has disappointed. The track record is a concern but also a positive, leaving this as a pick with lots of unknowns.

Click here for more details

23. Cleveland Indians select Carson Tucker, SS, Mountain Pointe (AZ)

A productive player at the plate, Tucker burst onto the scene late and impressed enough to earn him a selection in the first round of the MLB Draft. He also has good hands on feet, putting him in the discussion of being a starting shortstop for many years to come. Tucker is a growing player who truly excelled and sped up draft boards this spring.

24. Tampa Bay Rays select Nick Bitsko, RHP, Central Bucks (PA)

Bitsko slid down the draft boards more than expected and fell in the laps of the Rays’ front office. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound high school pitcher has a great curveball and has already reached a fastball velocity in the mid-90s, leaving the potential for him to reach triple digits. There are still some question marks due to Bitsko’s sample size, but this is a great value pick for the Rays nonetheless.

Click here for more details

25. Atlanta Braves select Jared Shuster, LHP, Wake Forest

Arguably a reach at No. 25, Shuster is still a reliable option for the Braves. The biggest concern for Shuster is the inverse of his greatest positives, as the left-hander recently improved his velocity, command, and control. Here’s where this could be perceived negatively: with a small sample size, could his strong season be a fluke? It’s unlikely, but still a risky pick nonetheless.

Click here for more details

26. Oakland Athletics select Tyler Soderstrom, C, Turlock (CA)

Dubbed the top catching prospect by many draft experts, Soderstrom is a left-handed hitter with decent defensive talents but even greater success at the plate. He has a polished and smooth approach with eye-opening pop. The biggest concern for Soderstrom is that he might not be best fit for a catching role long-term; perhaps he could shift to third base or the outfield.

Click here for more details

27. Minnesota Twins select Aaron Sabato, 1B, North Carolina

The Twins are all about power and that’s exactly what they’re getting from Sabato. He’s a mediocre defender with a decent glove but poor range and mobility. However, he makes up for that (and then some) with his impressive power bat and pop at the plate. One unique trait that Sabato boasts is his ability to post good contact and patience results despite being a power-heavy slugger.

Click here for more details

28. New York Yankees select Austin Wells, C, Arizona

The Yankees are truly buying bat here as they snag Arizona’s power-hitting catcher. With depth at catcher, Wells will likely take on a Kyle Schwarber or Blake Swihart role as he shifts positions. None of that matters as much as his bat, though. Wells has great timing and power at the plate and can send the ball to all parts of the field.

Click here for more details

29. Los Angeles Dodgers select Bobby Miller, RHP, Louisville

Velocity is the name of the game for Miller, whose fastball tops out around 99 MPH. He has a large frame and incredible stamina, which he put to good use when he took a no-hitter into the ninth inning of an NCAA super-regional playoff game last year. His delivery could be refined a bit more, but all in all, this is a steal for the Dodgers.

Competitive Balance Round A

30. Baltimore Orioles select Jordan Westburg, SS, Mississippi State

Founder of the rally banana, Westburg once struggled at the plate but drew positivity and optimism when he changed his approach in one week. Contact is still a weakness but he has truly flourished, earning him a first-round selection. Defensively, he could shift to second base or even third base if he adds strength, but shortstop is his home as of now.

Click here for more details

31. Pittsburgh Pirates select Carmen Mlodzinski, RHP, South Carolina

Stop us if you’ve heard this before: Mlodzinski is a right-handed collegiate prospect whose top pitch is a fastball that tops out right around 100 MPH. He struggled early in his collegiate career but turned his numbers around. Despite the small sample size of success, Mlodzinski had enough positive data to make him a Day 1 selection.

Click here for more details

32. Kansas City Royals select Nick Loftin, SS, Baylor

Loftin isn’t a standout at the plate in terms of production, but his smooth approach offensively coupled with his prowess in the field make him a reliable pick here. Loftin also has a high baseball IQ and a willingness to move around the field and experiment at various positions.

Click here for more details

33. Arizona Diamondbacks select Slade Cecconi, RHP, Miami

Another flame-throwing right-hander? Yes, please. Cecconi has impressive size with a mid-90s fastball that approaches 100 MPH from time to time. His lack of success when using the curveball and changeup could land him in the bullpen, but that should only be on a temporary basis as he is a quick learner who can make appropriate adjustments.

Click here for more details

34. San Diego Padres select Justin Lange, RHP, Llano (TX)

Lange is a promising pitcher with mid-90s velocity. One immediate knock is that Lange’s pitches do not feature much movement unless he slows them down, which sometimes results in a hard-hit ball. He has, however, added weight and strength which could translate to improvements in terms of pitching and movement.

35. Colorado Rockies select Drew Romo, C, The Woodlands (TX)

A high school catcher drafted in the first round is hard to come by—especially one with a good track record at the MLB level. Romo could be a exception, though. While he struggles offensively, Romo is an incredible defensive catcher with soft hands, advanced receiving skills and a strong arm with a quick release. He is also a hard-working leader with a high baseball IQ.

36. Cleveland Indians select Tanner Burns, RHP, Auburn

Burns possesses two quality pitches in his slider and fastball, which is a step in the right direction. However, an ideal starter would be able to safely rely on a higher number of pitches. Between that and his lack of durability, Burns will likely wind up as a reliever. Despite those knocks, Burns posted incredible collegiate numbers against some of the NCAA’s most challenging opponents.

Click here for more details

37. Tampa Bay Rays select Alika Williams, SS, Arizona State

Williams becomes the final Day 1 pick as he lands with the Rays. A true contact hitter, Williams has shown excellence when it comes to working the count as well as hitting pitches located in challenging parts of the strike zone. He has good hands and range, too, making him an all-around reliable player despite having a standout trait such as power.

Round 2

38. Detroit Tigers select Dillon Dingler, C, Ohio State

Dingler is a talented catcher with versatility after shifting from behind the dish to center field. With that said, he will likely remain at the plate for the entirety of his career. He isn’t the greatest defender but still very athletic with raw power and an above-average arm.

39. Baltimore Orioles select Hudson Haskin, OF, Tulane

A proven hitter with success in wood bat leagues, Haskin has a funky swing but still possesses solid power. He is very aggressive at the plate and also possesses impressive speed. Defensively, Haskin has a good IQ with an average arm.

40. Miami Marlins select Dax Fulton, LHP, Mustang (OK)

Fulton models his game off of Clayton Kershaw with a nasty curveball plus a tall and lanky frame that causes hitters to feel uncomfortable at the plate. He could add more strength but is an overall impressive prospect coming off of Tommy John surgery.

41. Kansas City Royals select Ben Hernandez, RHP, De La Salle (IL)

Hernandez has an impressive repertoire of pitches highlighted by the best changeup among all draft-eligible pitchers coming out of high school. The biggest knock on Hernandez is that he has filled his frame already and is likely done growing, meaning it could be challenging for him to gain strength and power.

42. Toronto Blue Jays select CJ Van Eyk, RHP, Florida State

Confidence in his pitches is the name of the game for Van Eyk, who doesn’t hesitate to throw challenging pitches during challenging situations. The biggest concern for Van Eyk is his command, which has faltered from time to time and is inconsistent.

43. Seattle Mariners select Zach DeLoach, OF, Texas A&M

Hitting is the name of the game for DeLoach, who earned high praise after retooling and improving on his game during the Cape Cod league. He has impressive contact and newfound power, plus added speed. There’s not much to dislike with DeLoach, who is a clear steal for the Mariners at No. 43.

44. Pittsburgh Pirates select Jared Jones, RHP, La Mirada (CA)

Once a two-way prospect, Jones is an athletic right-hander with some nasty pitches. Calm, collected, and poised on the mound, he has been on scouts radars’ for years. A firm believer in bat flips and batters getting plunked, Jones possesses incredible velocity but needs to work on his command.

45. San Diego Padres select Owen Caissie, OF, Notre Dame (ON)

Caissie has plus raw power with decent success and contact at the plate. He stands out in the outfield with great strength and speed plus a powerful arm. His swing and approach have each caused concern but until the numbers decrease, those negatives shouldn’t carry too much legitimacy.

46. Colorado Rockies select Chris McMahon, RHP, Miami

Fastball is far and way the best pitch in McMahon’s repertoire as he hits 99 MPH with the pitch, but he also carries an impressive ground-ball changeup. His breaking pitches can be successful, too, but carry significant inconsistency. This is a gritty player with a bright future.

47. Chicago White Sox select Jared Kelley, RHP, Refugio (TX)

Kelley slid down draft boards and fell into the White Sox’ laps. He creates incredible velocity—approaching 100 MPH—without much effort. His slider isn’t incredible but he throws strikes and has a great frame. This is another great addition for the White Sox who draft their second arm of the draft.

48. Cincinnati Reds select Christian Roa, RHP, Texas A&M

A bit of a reach at No. 48, Roa has been inconsistent on the mound at times. With that said, he has decent velocity and boasts success in the strike zone after allowing few walks. Overall, Roa has some good traits and some bad with a large plethora of question marks.

49. San Francisco Giants select Casey Schmitt, 3B, San Diego State

One of the draft’s top two-way players, Schmitt is a power-hitting infielder-reliever combo. He is a dominant closer but was drafted as a third baseman, where has also shown excellence. Schmitt’s hitting likely takes precedence, but he has proven he has enough arm strength to convert to the bullpen.

50. Texas Rangers select Evan Carter, OF, Elizabethton (TN)

Carter is a Duke commit with a solid frame and decent power. Having been excluded from most top-500 prospects lists, there is not much know about Carter. What we do know: he can also pitch but will likely land an offensive role thanks to his solid swing.

51. Chicago Cubs select Burl Carraway, LHP, Dallas Baptist

Carraway has decent velocity and one of the best curveballs in the draft. The southpaw has moderate size but can really throw the baseball well. With every pitch, the draft’s top reliever puts in tremendous effort and power which is why he boasts good velocity despite poor size.

52. New York Mets select J.T. Ginn, LHP, Mississippi State

A former first-round pick of the Dodgers, Ginn returned to the draft for a second time with continued signability concerns. He has decent velocity with a powerful arm; his fastball gets outs and he has terrific command. He is coming off an injury so there are certainly some question marks, but this is a solid pick for the Mets at No. 52 after their steal of Crow-Armstrong in the first round.

53. Milwaukee Brewers select Freddy Zamora, SS, Miami

Zamora was once a highly-regarded defensive infielder but his improved his bat, too. He has injury and off-the-field concerns which makes this somewhat of a risky pick, but his talent is there and he exhibits his true skill once he gets on the field. After all, the numbers speak for themself.

54. St. Louis Cardinals select Masyn Winn, SS/RHP, Kingwood (TX)

The first draftee selected as a two-way player this year, Winn deals at 97 MPH with decent size and balanced skill in the field and on the mound. He has some nasty stuff with a beautiful wipeout slider. At the plate, he possesses a smooth and strong swing. There’s not much that Winn can’t do.

55. Washington Nationals select Cole Henry, RHP, LSU

Henry has previous injury concerns from a nerve issue but is an all-around promising pick. He has a good pitcher’s body with good stuff, topping out at 92 MPH. His delivery isn’t flawless but his pitches speak for themselves, with a stunning 12-6 curve and a good fastball, too.

56. Cleveland Indians select Logan Allen, LHP, Florida International

Allen is a solid southpaw with decent success as a position player, too. Allen joins an Indians development system that drastically improves pitchers’ performances. The southpaw doesn’t have great velocity but does don good command. He should make his way to the majors very quickly.

57. Tampa Bay Rays select Ian Seymour, LHP, Virginia Tech

Seymour increased his velocity and production in the later years leading up to the draft; he could have put these traits on display if the spring season had not been cancelled. A strikeout king, Seymour needs to develop a third pitch but has exciting potential.

58. Oakland Athletics select Jeff Criswell, RHP, Michigan

Criswell moved from reliever to starter but could find his way back to the bullpen in affiliated ball. He is a good athlete with strength and a heavy fastball that has a lot of run. He’s still working on his control and delivery but should stick as a solid bullpen option.

59. Minnesota Twins select Alerick Soularie, OF, Tennessee

Soularie is a very good hitter with poise at the plate, a high IQ when a pitch is on the way, and solid line-drive contact. He does have good power, too, as well as versatility in the field between the outfield and even some time in the infield. A bat-first player, Soularie joins slugger Aaron Sabato on the Twins’ draft list.

60. Los Angeles Dodgers select Landon Knack, RHP, East Tennessee

Knack had good numbers before the coronavirus shutdown with incredible control. He touched 98 MPH on the radar gun after he stopped hitting and frequented the weight room at a higher rate. There are concerns about his age and peak considering he is approaching his 23rd birthday, but this is a money-saving option with a low risk and high reward.

Competitive Balance Round B

61. Miami Marlins select Kyle Nicolas, RHP, Ball State

Nicolas has a great combo of swing-and-miss pitches in his slider and fastball, the latter of which has touched 100 MPH. His mechanics aren’t always in sync but his delivery doesn’t carry too many concerns. Overall, this is a mediocre pick here—not a steal but not an awful pick, either.

62. Detroit Tigers select Daniel Cabrera, OF, LSU

An average runner with a mediocre arm and decent defensive skills, Cabrera’s prowess at the plate shines. He can hit to all parts of the field and beat the shift with a lofty launch angle that allows him to get pop. With impressive numbers and a bright future, this is a steal that adds to Detroit’s excellent draft class.

63. St. Louis Cardinals select Markevian “Tink” Hence, RHP, Watson Chapel (PA)

Hence has a small frame but could improve on that as he ages (he is currently 17). He lacks physicality but has a decent arm with twitchiness and speed. This is a safe pick for the Cardinals, who draft their third high school prospect of the draft.

64. Seattle Mariners select Connor Phillips, RHP, McLennan Community College

Phillips has decent velocity with power and depth on his curveball. The 19-year-old has decent stuff, stamina, and athleticism but needs to work on his control and strike-throwing. A good repertoire coupled with a young age make up a promising prospect in Phillips.

65. Cincinnati Reds select Jackson Miller, C, J.W. Mitchell (FL)

Despite a small frame, Miller is an all-around solid player. He doesn’t have many tools that stand out but boasts quality around the board with a high IQ behind the dish and proven success at the plate. Similar to St. Louis’ selection of Hence, Cincinnati drafting Miller is a safe pick that could pay off.

66. Los Angeles Dodgers select Clayton Beeter, RHP, Texas Tech

There’s another Clayton in L.A. The right-hander climbed up draft boards rapidly in recent months and projects as a potential starter. His injury track record is concerning with a flurry of operations but he is adamant that those are in the past. He has incredible stuff with a nasty heater and a filthy wipeout curveball.

Compensation Picks

67. San Francisco Giants select Nick Swiney, LHP, North Carolina State

Swiney posted decent numbers as a starter but boasts more dominance as a reliever. He lost nearly 5 MPH on his fastball when he transitioned to the rotation despite showing more success there. He did slash his walk rate, which is another positive for Swiney.

68. San Francisco Giants select Jimmy Glowenke, SS, Dallas Baptist

Currently a shortstop, Glowenke is a decent fielder but might end up transitioning to second base. Drawing comparisons to Stephen Drew, Aaron Hill, and fellow Dallas Baptist product Ryan Goins, Glowenke is a contact hitter with an all-around solid skill set.

69. New York Mets select Isaiah Greene, OF, Corona (CA)

A plus runner with good contact, Greene should stick in the outfield with an incredible arm. His swing is flat but he can still drive the ball which should allow him to tap into his potential and expand on his power at the plate in professional baseball.

70. St. Louis Cardinals select Alec Burleson, OF, East Carolina

A two-way player who has appeared on the mound, at first base, and in the outfield, Burleson is a great hitter who barrels the ball and makes contact despite lacking power. He lacks range and speed but is a stereotypical bat-first player with this pick.

71. Washington Nationals select Samuel Infante, SS, Monsignor Edward Pace (FL)

A Miami commit, Infante has a good balance of tools with a flashy ability in the field and some promise at the plate. He has great reaction and arm strength but could lack range at the pro level, forcing him to shift to third base. His offensive production depends on the day but is a promising aspect of his game.

72. Houston Astros select Alex Santos, RHP, Mount St. Michael Academy (NY)

The Bronx native is tall with long arms and a solid delivery. He is very projectable with first-round talent and is expected to gain velocity in future years—which is an area he definitely needs to improve. Houston executes this selection wisely as they select a first-round candidate at No. 72.

Round 3

73. Detroit Tigers select Jose “Trei” Cruz III, SS, Rice

A member of a talented baseball family, Cruz has already been drafted twice but the third time should be a charm. He modified a big leg kick and improved his hard contact with twitchiness and quickness out of the box. He might shift to third or second base but is an all-around promising prospect.

74. Baltimore Orioles select Anthony Servideo, SS, Mississippi

Servideo struggled offensively at the Cape Cod league which hurt his draft stock. His wood bat success was subpar but he has since worked to improve his skill in that area and could boast a newfound talent at the plate in the future. He is also a flashy infielder with tremendous skill on the defensive side of the game.

75. Miami Marlins select Zach McCambley, RHP, Coastal Carolina

Signability was once a big issue for McCambley, but he should put pen to paper this time around. He has a terrific curveball that has reached a maximum grade of 70 with a decent fastball that reaches the mid-70s. He needs to develop his third pitch and clean up his delivery if he wants to stick as a starter in the professional ranks.

76. Kansas City Royals select Tyler Gentry, OF, Alabama

Gentry was a late riser on draft boards with great right-handed power that blasts the ball to all parts of the field. He is aggressive with decent control of the strike zone plus a great arm, decent speed, and underrated athleticism. He should stick in right field and see a successful transition to pro ball.

77. Toronto Blue Jays select Trent Palmer, RHP, Jacksonville

Palmer possesses a solid fastball that hits 98 MPH plus a quirky changeup, reliable slider, and interesting curveball. Command has been an issue for Palmer and he will likely transition to a bullpen role as he climbs the ranks in the Blue Jays’ farm system.

78. Seattle Mariners select Kaden Polcovich, 2B, Oklahoma

Polcovich is a hard-worker with a small and stalky frame. He has an all-around solid skill set with no standout traits but a variety of reliable skills. A shortstop who will likely switch to second base, Polcovich comes from a baseball family and should fit in nicely in the Mariners’ system.

79. Pittsburgh Pirates select Nick Garcia, RHP, Chapman

Garcia would have been a surefire first round pick if he were a Division I player but his D-III history landed him in the third round. A rare college pitcher with upside, there are a lot of unknowns about Garcia—which is a good sign because his “unknowns” aren’t question marks but rather representatives of untapped potential.

80. San Diego Padres select Cole Wilcox, RHP, Georgia

Wilcox has great stuff on the mound with a fastball that hits 100 MPH. He struggled with command but still earned a first-round valuation, making him a steal at No. 80 if he can agree to terms with the Padres. In terms of his repertoire and stuff on the mound, this is an incredibly valuable pick for an already-loaded San Diego draft class.

81. Colorado Rockies select Sam Weatherly, LHP, Clemson

A college reliever with a small sample size as a starter, Weatherly has a good track record in both roles but will likely return to the bullpen in the pros. He struggles to find the strike zone from time to time but has good power and strength, a nice delivery, and modest velocity.

82. Los Angeles Angels select David Calabrese, OF, St. Elizabeth (ON)

A small-bodied player with a promising future, Calabrese has some signability concerns but would be a huge addition for the Angels if the two sides agree to terms. Calabrese has so much untapped potential that he can discover if he adds strength and size.

83. Chicago White Sox select Adisyn Coffey, RHP,

Coffey is an athletic player with decent velocity on the mound who could move to the infield after boasting a good background as a shortstop. He was left off of many top-500 prospects lists so there are many unknowns surrounding the right-handed hurler.

84. Cincinnati Reds select Bryce Bonnin, RHP, Texas Tech

Bonnin has a delivery that baffles opposing right-handed pitchers. There are questions about whether he will be a starter or a reliever but answers to that concern won’t be clear for quite some time. He has a good fastball-slider combo with decent velocity and should make an impact in affiliated ball.

85. San Francisco Giants select Kyle Harrison, LHP, De La Salle (CA)

Harrison has an average fastball that tops out around 97 MPH. He has a good mix of pitches and possesses confidence in his changeup. Some scouts see a low ceiling on Harrison but his solid delivery suggests otherwise.

86. Texas Rangers select Tekoah Roby, RHP, Pine Forest (FL)

A future backend starter, Roby is a decent arm with a cross-arm delivery. He has decent success when navigating the strike zone but still needs to make improvements in the control and command departments. With that said, this is a good pick at No. 86 despite being a bit of a reach.

87. Philadelphia Phillies select Casey Martin, SS, Arkansas

An explosive athlete, Martin possesses speed and power. He also dons versatility as he could shift to second base, third base, or the outfield. He has speed and arm strength and has the potential to be a future star in professional baseball.

88. Chicago Cubs select Jordan Nwogu, OF, Michigan

A big-bodied outfielder, Nwogu is an athlete with good power despite an unorthodox swing. He has a high baseball IQ and plus speed with a great physicality that was likely spurred by his high school success as a football defensive end. He is poised to be an everyday right fielder despite a poor arm and trouble running routes.

89. Boston Red Sox select Blaze Jordan, 3B, DeSoto Central (MS)

Blaze Jordan hits 520-foot bombs. With experience at both corner infield positions, Jordan has gained consistency on the offensive spectrum with a newfound focus on outcome. A third-round bat in the first round, Boston gets a steal here after an interesting pick earlier in the first round.

90. Arizona Diamondbacks select Liam Norris, LHP, Green Hope (NC)

Norris has a powerful frame with good fastball production and reliable secondary pitches; he is also developing a changeup with some sink. Norris is strong but not very athletic and has thus struggled with his delivery, which is cause for some concern. Walks is also a major issue for Norris, who allowed 107 walks in 141 innings at Greem Hope.

91. New York Mets select Anthony Walters, SS, San Diego State

Walters is a confusing pick and might have been made with monetary savings in mind. Walters doesn’t have a great track record or promise but has shown flashes of potential from time to time. It is truly too early to predict the outcome of Walter’s career and future.

92. Milwaukee Brewers select Zavier Warren, C, Central Michigan

Surprisingly drafted as a catcher, Warren hasn’t appeared behind the dish since high school. He played shortstop at Central Michigan but moved to third base in the Cape Cod league. Warren lacks speed but has a sound swing offensively with a solid arm and decent hands on the defensive side.

93. St. Louis Cardinals select Levi Prater, LHP, Oklahoma

Prater has a good three-pitch mix and possesses competitiveness and perseverance, which is reflected in the grit he shows while playing with two fingers under his glove after losing the other three in an accident. He doesn’t have a high velocity but does boast solid control.

94. Washington Nationals select Holden Powell, RHP, UCLA

Powell is a college reliever who should make his way through the ranks quickly and appear in the majors at a fast rate. He did have some strike-throwing issues but appeared to address and improve that concern this past offseason.

95. Cleveland Indians select Petey Halpin, OF, Mira Costa (FL)

Halpin is a speedy and quick player with an exception hit tool, impressive arm strength, and great confidence. He possesses a good frame and a high ceiling, making this a really good selection for the Indians at No. 95.

96. Tampa Bay Rays select Hunter Barnhart, RHP, Saint Joseph (CA)

A two-sport star in high school who posted an MVP season as a football quarterback, Barnhart has an impressive curveball and possesses a fresh arm. As he turns his focus to baseball full-time, he should improve on his lack of experience, which has been a concern from time to time.

97. Atlanta Braves select Jesse Franklin V, OF, Michigan

Franklin has a durability concern after suffering several injuries in the past five years. With that said, he has good strength and solid raw power. He is also good at navigating the strike zone. The biggest knock on Franklin is that he doesn’t always play fast and has not displayed success when stealing bases and running routes.

98. Oakland Athletics select Michael Guldberg, OF, Georgia Tech

Guldberg has defensive concerns after recent injuries and will likely slot into the corner outfield positions. He is a strong hitter who controls the strike zone well. He does lack power but the biggest concern is that his injury history hurt his draft stock.

99. New York Yankees select Trevor Hauver, 2B, Arizona State

A collegiate outfielder, the Yankees are selecting Hauver as an infielder. The Arizona native has decent size for a second baseman despite moving to the outfield to fill a void at ASU. He makes good contact and can hit for power, with his biggest concern being mediocrity on the defensive side.

100. Los Angeles Dodgers select Jake Vogel, OF, Huntington Beach (CA)

Vogel is a speedy center fielder who compares himself to fellow five-tool outfielder Mike Trout. Vogel is small and speedy, making his mark as one of the draft’s fastest players. He is smooth in the field and should gain good awareness and success at the plate going forward.

101. Houston Astros select Tyler Brown, RHP, Vanderbilt

One of the best closers in college baseball, Brown is a big-bodied player who was expected to return to Vanderbilt but could perhaps go pro for the right price. He possesses a fastball in the mid-90s plus a decent slider and curveball. Brown has dealt with immense adversity and has the mentality that teams crave in the late innings of ballgames.

Round 4

102. Detroit Tigers select Gage Workman, 3B, Arizona State

Workman is a promising switch-hitter who broke out as a sophomore. His defensive prowess was so incredible that he was singlehandedly responsible for Spencer Torkelson’s move to first base. Workman will likely shift to second base and is very comfortable all-around. This opening pick in the fourth round adds to the Tigers’ draft class, which is the best of all teams so far.

103. Baltimore Orioles select Coby Mayo, 3B, Marjory Stoneman Douglas (FL)

Mayo is a big, physical player with great power and a plus arm. Modeling his game after Kris Bryant, Mayo says he is a tall and likable player with great athleticism. He is a power over hit player with concerns about his swing-and-miss ability but is a strong pick for the Orioles nonetheless.

104. Miami Marlins select Jake Eder, LHP, Vanderbilt

The Marlins’ fourth pick is their fourth pitcher. He is a durable, strong athlete with a future as a starter. He has an aggressive fastball with great spin plus a 12-6 curve and smooth slider. His delivery is inconsistent and concerning but his reliability out of the bullpen should benefit the Marlins.

105. Kansas City Royals select Christian Chamberlain, LHP, Oregon State

An undersized southpaw, Chamberlain is a bulldog on the mound with grit and a solid track record. A future reliever, Chamberlain will debut as a starter but likely won’t stick in that role due to size and command issues.

106. Toronto Blue Jays select Nick Frasso, RHP, Loyola Marymount

Shut down early this spring due to forearm tightness, Frasso was once considered a first-round prospect. He hasn’t fully matured in terms of physicality and should improve in that department going forward. He has topped out at 97 MPH and has shown success as a bullpen option. He’ll debut as a starter and could stick in the role with good athleticism and accuracy in the strike zone.

107. Seattle Mariners select Tyler Keenan, 3B, Mississippi

A big-bodied third baseman, Keenan is one of the best left-handed power hitters in the draft. A steal at No. 107, Keenan is a power over defense player who possesses bat speed and strength. He has a decent arm but lacks reaction time and quickness, which could be concerning at third base and could lead to a transition to first base.

108. Pittsburgh Pirates select Jack Hartman, RHP, Appalachian State

A big-bodied hurler who was once a position player made his way through the bullpen en route to becoming a starter. His walk rate is a bit of a concern and he was not ranked in many analysts’ top-200 lists. Likely a reliever going forward, Hartman could save money as a college senior.

109. San Diego Padres select Levi Thomas, RHP, Troy

Although he lacks an overpowering fastball, the pitch carries well and possesses some movement. While Thomas doesn’t have a big frame, he has made his prowess clear on the mound with a solid slider and a developing changeup. This truly resembles a stereotypical fourth-round pick.

110. Colorado Rockies select Case Williams, RHP, Douglas County (CO)

The Rockies stay local with a non-rated right-hander. Unranked by many experts, he has a decent repertoire of pitches and has added strength after gaining weight. He needs to develop his secondary pitches but possesses a solid future with experience pitching in altitude.

111. Los Angeles Angels select Werner Blakely, SS, Detroit Edison Academy (MI)

The best high school player in the Detroit area, Blakely is a high-risk, high-reward player with good athleticism and solid range at shortstop. Defensively, he needs to improve his hands and glovework and thus cut down on errors. Meanwhile, at the plate, he has promise but needs to improve timing issues with his swing.

112. Chicago White Sox select Kade Mechals, RHP, Grand Canyon

Not rated by many experts, Mechals is a small-bodied pitcher who was expected to go undrafted. Coming off of Tommy John surgery, Mechals is an aggressive player who hit mid-90s pre-surgery. He has a good breaking ball and decent changeup with good numbers in college and an impressive strikeout rate.

113. Cincinnati Reds select Mackenzie Wainwright, OF, St. Edwards (OH)

A local kid who committed to Ohio State, Wainwright is just 17 and was excluded from may top-200 lists due to a small sample size (he missed time due to injury). With a big body, good bat speed, and decent speed, Cincinnati takes a risky pick that could have a high ceiling.

114. San Francisco Giants select R.J. Dabovich, RHP, Arizona State

A rotation and bullpen combo, Dabovich suffered a knee injury in high school but posted really good numbers in college. Not a full-time starter, Dabovich lacks command and could see himself in a relief role shortly after making his pro debut as a starter.

115. Texas Rangers select Dylan MacLean, LHP, Central Catholic (OR)

A traditional southpaw, MacLean will develop as a young, projectable pitcher with velocoity spiking right around 90 MPH. As he grows and matures physically and adds experience to his repertoire, he could become a stereotypical southpaw with a good frame.

116. Philadelphia Phillies select Carson Ragsdale, RHP, South Florida

A true reliever, Ragsdale missed 2019 following Tommy John surgery. He showed flashes of potential as a starter in a limited sample size this spring but it is unclear if he can hold on to that role going forward. He needs to improve his velocity but has a good breaking ball and curveball.

117. Chicago Cubs select Luke Little, LHP, San Jacinto (TX)

Checking in at a whopping 6-foot-8, Little has topped out at 105 MPH in bullpen sessions. A hard-thrower clocked at 101 MPH by scouts, he has a hard slider and is in better shape after dealing with back issues. His velocity is inconsistent which could result in a shift to the bullpen for him.

118. Boston Red Sox select Jeremy Wu-Yelland, LHP, Hawaii

Wu-Yelland came on strong after an impressive Cape Cod league showing and improved on that as a reliever in his next collegiate season. He has a good fastball that hits 96 MPH and will likely transition to a bullpen role in the pros.

119. Arizona Diamondbacks select AJ Vukovich, 1B, East Troy (MI)

One of the most powerful high schoolers in the draft, Vukovich is a tall and big-bodied third baseman who could switch to first base in a long-term outlook. He needs to work on his development at the plate to expand on his power with a nicer, smoother swing.

120. New York Mets select Matthew Dyer, C, Arizona

Dyer is a big-bodied catcher who has spent time in the infield and outfield, thus providing versatility to the Mets. His offensive production is hard to predict as he shows promise at the plate but needs to improve in various areas, too.

121. Milwaukee Brewers select Joey Wiemer, OF, Cincinnati

An athletic outfielder with a decent showing in the wood bat Cape Cod league, Wiemer has an open stance with a quirky approach at the plate. He is a big-bodied player with plus raw power but poor contact; his power hasn’t translated on the field as much as scouts were hoping it would based on his batting practice showings.

122. St. Louis Cardinals select Ian Bedell, RHP, Missouri

Bedell is a young college player with prototypical pitcher size. He dominated in the Cape Cod league with a strong showing in the NCAA before the 2020 season was halted. His stuff has been sharp in the past but could be an area of improvement going forward. All in all, however, this is a steal of a pick at No. 122.

123. Washington Nationals select Brady Lindsly, C, University of Oklahoma

Lindsly posted solid collegiate numbers with great skills behind the plate. He lacks power and contact, projecting more as a backup catcher. This is a true money-saving selection of a senior at No. 123 in the shortened draft.

124. Cleveland Indians select Milan Tolentino, SS, Santa Margarita Catholic (CA)

A talented defender, Tolentino has great instincts and is a natural player of the shortstop position. He doesn’t have quickness but makes up for that with great hands. He has decent skills at the plate but doesn’t pull the ball; he could benefit from adding strength and power.

125. Tampa Bay Rays select Tanner Murray, SS, UC Davis

Murray has great plate discipline with solid collegiate numbers. He lacks power but still has a reliable bat. He struggled in the Cape Cod league where he posted a scary strikeout rate which is one of the reasons he fell so far in the draft.

126. Atlanta Braves select Spencer Strider, RHP, Clemson

Strider missed all of 2019 as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. In four appearances in 2020, he hit 95-plus MPH and has a good arm that could positively impact the Braves’ rotation or bullpen. All in all, this pick saves money but is still a good choice at No. 126.

127. Oakland Athletics select Dane Acker, RHP, Oklahoma

Acker has some bad games in his past but is ultimately a solid pitcher with good command in control. Acker has a high ceiling and should stick as a starter throughout the levels of affiliated ball.

128. Minnesota Twins select Marco Raya, RHP, United South (TX)

Raya has an advanced pitch ability for someone his age. He should have an immediate impact in the Twins’ system as he utilizes his proficiency on the mound. He was somewat underscouted so the lack of knowledge about him could be a minor concern, but ut’s not too big of an issue.

129. New York Yankees select Beck Way, RHP, Northwest Florida Satte

Way has a good frame and size for a pitcher with a strong repertoire of pitches. He is long and lean with a three-quarters delivery and velocity in the mid-90s. He has a good slider but doesn’t use his changeup much. He has struggled with command but increased his consistency.

130. Los Angeles Dodgers select Carson Taylor, C, Virginia Tech

Taylor was a promising college catcher who was up and down at the plate as he tries to navigate his power. His power is untapped with a decent contact trait. He has good receiving behind the dish with an average arm and the potential to excel at first base.

131. Houston Astros select Zach Daniels, OF, Tennessee

Daniels posted tremendous 2020 stats after struggling in previous years. He has great raw power with the potential to excel at center field. He struggled at the plate early on at Tennessee and put up poor numbers in the Cape Cod league.

Round 5

132. Detroit Tigers select Colt Keith, 3B, Biloxi (MS)

Keith makes consistent and hard contact from the left side of the plate and has solid raw power. He has good bat speed and leverage plus projected strength ad pop. He also has god velocity on the mound but is projected to play third base and shortstop rather than a role on the mound.

133. Baltimore Orioles select Carter Baumler, RHP, Dowling Catholic (IA)

Baumler is strong and athletic with mid-90s velocity. He projects to add more velocity in the future when he adds strength, and he has a clean delivery which should allow him to stay healthy and throw strikes. He is a speedy and powerful player who has dazzled at various other positions, including catcher, but will likely remain solely at pitcher in the pros.

134. Miami Marlins select Kyle Hurt, RHP, USC

Hurt struggled at USC and was demoted to the bullpen, necessitating extra time on campus to build his core strength. He hits 96 MPH with his fastball but has had issues with command. However, the Marlins clearly see something in him and he could be developed into a big-league starter in the right system.

135. Kansas City Royals select Will Klein, RHP, Eastern Illinois

Klein is a power arm with good collegiate numbers and success in the showcase circuit. He has a solid curveball but moderate command, and will ;ikely be a long-time reliever down the road.

136. Toronto Blue Jays select Zach Britton, OF, Louisville

Britton lacks power but did show promise in the Cape Cod league. He has a solid bat overall with a future in left field. He dons a fringe arm and fringe speed but could make a presence in the Blue Jays’ future outfield.

137. Seattle Mariners select Taylor Dollard, RHP, Cal Poly

Dollard excelled as a reliever but has great command (while lacking raw stuff) and could make an impact in a starting rotation. He has a decent repertoire of pitches with a low walk rate. He has a limited ceiling but is a projectable back-end starter.

138. Pittsburgh Pirates select Logan Hoffman, RHP, Northwestern

Hoffman is a short pitcher at 5-foot-10 but he had a solid showing before the 2020 shutdown. He’s not an overpowering arm but has a velocity in the low-90s plus a nasty 12-6 curveball. Hoffman could benefit from adding a tertiary pitch as he approaches affiliated ball.

139. San Diego Padres select Jagger Haynes, LHP, West Columbus (NC)

The Tar Heel commit is a very projectable southpaw with arm strength. He’s an upside pick with a high ceiling and worth a “risk” pick in the fifth and final round of the MLB Draft.

140. Colorado Rockies select Jack Blomgren, SS, Michigan

Blomgren is a safe pick here with quality leadership traits. He has decent contact but a flat swing. He possesses a high baseball IQ with good range but lacks speed. The Michigan product gets on base and will surely move around and play several positions for Colorado’s system.

141. Los Angeles Angels select Adam Seminaris, LHP, Long Beach State

Seminaris is one of the class’s best strike-throwers with a good fastball and two nice breaking balls. He baffles opposing batters, knocking them off their feet and fooling them time and time again. This is a really solid pick for value at No. 141.

142. Chicago White Sox select Bailey Horn, LHP, Auburn

Horn is an athletic southpaw who got off to a great start before the shutdown. His fastball touches 95 MPH post-Tommy John surgery with a bullpen role likely in his future. Horn is a talented player who should sign for cheap. He throws strikes and his best pitch is his nasty slider.

143. Cincinnati Reds select Joe Boyle, RHP, Notre Dame

Boyle is a big-bodied right-hander at 6-foot-7. He has the draft’s best fastball at 102 MPH, which makes him a pure steal at No. 143. He has a high ceiling and makes touching triple-digits look easy. He’ll be a dominant reliever who needs to work on his command and control if he wants to climb the ranks.

144. San Francisco Giants select Ryan Murphy, LHP, Le Moyne

A strong competitor and pure starter, Murphy is a safe pick at No. 144. Murphy has a mediocre repertoire of pitches with a proven track record and good performance. He’s a mostly unknown D-II product who has drawn the attention of area scouts thanks to his four pitches (compared to other pitchers who have two to three pitches).

145. Texas Rangers select Thomas Saggese, SS, Carlsbad (CA)

A 6-foot infielder with a contact-driven swing and the potential for power, Saggese was a late riser on draft boards and earned a selection by the Rangers, who conducted an interesting and fascinating draft. Keep in mind that Saggese could shift to second base down the road.

146. Philadelphia Phillies select Baron Radcliff, OF, Georgia Tech

Radcliff is a big-bodied left-hander who prioritizes power over contact. He has a worrisome strikeout rate but does run well. With a larger sample size and a greater track record, Radcliff could have been drafted earlier. In the end, Philadelphia takes a chance on a promising prospect.

147. Chicago Cubs select Koen Moreno, RHP, Panther Creek (NC)

Moreno is an athletic and projectable right-hander who improves with every start. He has a good frame and a solid repertoire of pitches for a high school prospect, making him an underrated player and a very valuable selection for the Cubs.

148. Boston Red Sox select Shane Drohan, LHP, Florida State

Drohan is a talented athlete who played quarterback in high school. He has a deceiving delivery with prototypical size for a pitcher. This is a good pick for the Red Sox as it has low-risk, high-reward written all over it, which is rare for a collegiate southpaw.

149. Arizona Diamondbacks select Brandon Pfaadt, RHP, Bellarmine

A big-bodied, D-II prospect, Bellarmine pitched successfully in the shortened 2020 season. He has proven himself in the showcase circuit with a good fastball and breaking ball. His velocity drops off after a few innings; these concerns about his stamina could force him into a long-term bullpen role.

150. New York Mets select Eric Orze, RHP, New Orleans

This is a bold pick by the Mets as they take the 22-year-old right-hander. Orze has beaten cancer twice and has a solid fastball and slider. He lacks a track record but showed potential in the spring before the season was cut off.

151. Milwaukee Brewers select Hayden Cantrelle, SS, Louisiana-Lafayette

A Division I wide receiver candidate, Cantrelle pursued baseball and is now a fifth-round selection of the Brewers after carrying third-round value. He has a great track record with proven success at shortstop, making this a value pick for the Brewers as they add a collegiate prospect with a high ceiling.

152. St. Louis Cardinals select L.J. Jones IV, OF, Long Beach State

Jones possesses good power and is projected to appear at the corner outfield positions. Jones is a very safe pick for the Cardinals with good potential at No. 152.

153. Washington Nationals select Mitchell Parker, LHP, San Jacinto (TX)

Parker is a strikeout machine with more than two K’s per inning. Essentially the starting pitcher version of Josh Hader, Parker has a mid-90s fastball with a secondary curveball that baffles opponents. Despite his high strikeout rate, Parker does have a control issue as well as a funky delivery.

154. Cleveland Indians select Mason Hickman, RHP, Vanderbilt

Hickman is a big, 6-foot-6 right-hander who is a reliable college arm. He is a strong strike-thrower with good breaking balls and a reliable changeup. A pure winner, Hickman joins and Indians draft class that was one of the best during Day 2.

155. Tampa Bay Rays select Jeffrey Hakanson, RHP, Central Florida

Hakanson is a reliever with average height, a fabulous walk rate, and a solid strikeout rate. There are a lot of unknowns surrounding Hakanson but when all is said and done, this should prove to be an intelligent and valuable selection as the end of the draft approaches.

156. Atlanta Braves select Bryce Elder, RHP, Texas-Austin

Elder has been a reliable starter for two years after spending 2018 as a reliever. He has one of the class’s best sliders and was expected to be drafted around pick No. 85. He should be a back-end starter with his manipulative actions on the mound, a solid pitch repertoire at his disposal, and a promising future ahead of him.

157. Oakland Athletics select Stevie Emanuels, RHP, Washington

Often used as a reliever, Emanuels will make his pro debut as a starter before returning to the bullpen as he climbs the ranks. He has a three- or four-pitch mix with mid-90s velocity on his fastball.

158. Minnesota Twins select Kala’i Rosario, OF, Waiakea (HI)

Rosario has posted incredible results in the showcase circuit as well as with the wood bat. He is a strong and powerful 17-year-old with incredible thump from the right side of plate. He pulls the ball often and will need to improve his strikeout rate. Defensively, he will likely shift to corner outfield as he loses speed during his transition to the pros.

159. Los Angeles Dodgers select Gavin Stone, RHP, Central Arkansas

Tossing a no-hitter in his final collegiate outing, Stone has impressive strikeout and walk rates with success as a reliever and a small sample size of promise as a starter.

160. Houston Astros select Shay Whitcomb, UC San Diego

The final pick in the shortened 2020 MLB Draft, Whitcomb has value, size, and decent power. His defensive performance is mediocre as he represents a true power over defense standpoint.
