Continually updated video library of 2014 First-Year Player Draft prospects.

Welcome to the 2014 MLB Draft Video Library -- this space will feature periodic uploads of videos of 2014 MLB draft prospects from now through June. It will be updated every single day and the new videos for a particular week will be featured at the top of this page with the archived videos directly below. Chances are if you are looking for a draft prospect you will find some video of him on this page between now and June.

A look at which teams have had the most hits and misses in recent drafts.

What you'd probably like to know during amateur draft week is which teams will get the most production out of the 2014 draft. Unfortunately, that's a question that we won't be able to answer for a while. So as a substitute, would you accept an examination of which teams have drafted the most (and best) major leaguers in recent years? As part of BP's partnership with Fox Sports, I attempted to answer that question (and others) in an article up today at the Fox Sports MLB page. Here's a teaser:

For the final time: History made!

Well this will be the end for this feature. So, in our last week of new pitching lines, let's see what we've learned. Below are the 50 most recent pitching lines that starters have produced, all of Wednesday's and Thursday's starts. Think you can guess which ones are new? I'm going to guess. Go ahead and guess! I have no idea how many are going to be new, but based on our typical averages, five to seven is a good estimate.

The Angels shortstop steals second when nobody is looking.

Erick Aybar's clever baserunning has earned e-ink before, but what he did in last night's game against the Mariners marks a new personal best.

HISTORY! IT'S BEING MADE, DAMNIT!

Why are position players increasingly cast as mop-up men?

When Andrew Koo wrote about the rate of position player appearances last August, he noted that while such appearances had hit an all-time high in 2013, he was “hesitant to declare” a pattern based on a single season. Nine months later, though, the pattern is looking pretty clear. Here’s how this season’s total so far compares to the totals for each season since 1977 (before which it becomes tougher to untangle the pitcher-hitter hybrids).

And giving him very good grades.

I had a feeling we might see a position player in Detroit on Thursday, when the Tigers battled the Tribe for 13 innings and got only 10 outs from Robbie Ray. It could easily have been Don Kelly, who pumped 85 mph heat and a curveball in a 2011 game. But instead, in the top of the ninth, Brad Ausmus summoned utility infielder (“the very utility infielderiest of utility infielders,” according to Grant Brisbee) Danny Worth.

Jones didn't make it into the Annual this year, but now he's contributing. Here's why/how/what/etc.

Roughly 2,100 players got a write-up in Baseball Prospectus 2014, which is enough to cover every player on every team’s 40-man roster, plus every team’s top 10 prospects, plus 700 or so spare names (depending on 40-man/top-10 overlap)—in other words, every player you could possibly want to know about, plus an entire shadow league of players, big enough to staff 20 or 25 more teams’ active rosters. And yet, it’s not quite enough to cover everybody who will play in the big leagues this season.

Getting beyond the headlines--are pitching prospects as dangerous as they've always been?

At the end of the 2012 season, we looked at whether TINSTAAPP was as true now as it had always been. There were encouraging signs: In the six years after appearing in the top 50 on a prospect ranking, pitchers were pitching more, and pitching better, than they had when Gary Huckabay coined the phrase. But this has been a very, very sad spring for young pitchers, so at Fox Sports we updated the research to see whether the trend had continued, and looked at the 2012 prospect class to see whether they were on track. An excerpt:
