2023 MLB Draft Guide

The 2023 MLB draft begins on July 9 and features elite talent and plenty of well-regarded hitting prospects. LSU outfielder Dylan Crews, LSU right-handed pitcher Paul Skenes, Florida outfielder Wyatt Langford and prep outfielders Walker Jenkins and Max Clark highlight the top tier of prospects in this year’s draft class.

The Pittsburgh Pirates own the top overall pick after winning the first-ever draft lottery. It will be intriguing to see how the first round plays out.

MLB Draft Profiles

The 2023 MLB draft marks my eighth year covering the draft and writing detailed stories on top draft prospects. I have written stories on 85 of the top draft prospects in this year’s draft. Read them all HERE.

In my previous eight years covering the draft, I interviewed 433 of the top draft prospects, including four No. 1 overall picks. Multiple publications, including Baseball America, USA Today, MLB.com, The Arizona Republic and The Dallas Morning News, have quoted my work. I also have appeared on radio stations as an “MLB draft expert.”
