What to Watch For
This year, Baseball Prospectus has increased its coverage of amateur baseball and the MLB First-Year Player Draft. Over the past eight months, we’ve produced roughly 70,000 draft-related words, and you can find links to them all right here.
This offseason, Baseball Prospectus also joined forces with Perfect Game USA—the premiere baseball showcase/tournament provider in the world—and our newly forged partnership has provided the Baseball Prospectus readership with access to further MLB draft and amateur baseball content from the insightful team over at PG. Finally, both Baseball Prospectus and Perfect Game will continue to roll out further draft content throughout the week (publishing schedule below), so check in regularly this week to make sure you’re teed up for the draft when it kicks off on Thursday evening.
