Re: 2020 Draft Thread

On top of that, teams and agents expect fewer high school players to sign this year, with fewer opportunities and less money to go around. “What is MLB trying to do?” asked one agent. “Get as many athletes into the game as possible? What’s going to happen when you have five rounds? Kids are going t...

Meh: https://twitter.com/AP_Sports/status/1240437519558283271?s=20 IFA's could be scrapped too. Looks like this got averted https://twitter.com/kileymcd/status/1243205780674920449?s=19 A 10 round draft still sucks and if NDFAs are only going to get $10k, so much talent is going to end up returning/...

Re: 2020 Minor League Rosters

Guys usually only get pushed down one level over the course of ST, right? If that (questionable) assumption holds, it implies that Hearn and Verdugo will be starting at SB to open the year. Not wildly unexpected in either case, but I'd say a pleasant surprise. On the flip side, I'm hoping that Stru...

Contrary to reports, 2019-20 IFA J-2 C Brayan Altuve was -NOT - signed by the Cubs in July. The Cubs did not have enough ISBP room initially to fit in his $1M bonus, so instead he was "officially" signed after the conclusion of the 2019 season, which means the Cubs will get an extra year ...

BA on Ginn’s draft prospects: While the news is concerning, there have been several college pitchers in recent years who have had the surgery during their draft-eligible seasons and still been selected in the first round.
