The 2020 MLB draft is June 10. This year’s draft will be like any other year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Major league scouts and front office executives have had a difficult time preparing for this year’s draft with the cancellation of college and high school baseball seasons in mid-March. This year’s draft also will be just five rounds instead of the typical 40 rounds.

MLB draft writer Dan Zielinski III has interviewed and written in-depth profiles on 61 of this year’s top draft prospects. He also has produced podcasts, detailed all the latest news and written mock drafts.
