2024 MLB Draft Guide

The 2024 MLB draft begins on July 14 and features tons of parity among the top draft prospects. Georgia third baseman/outfielder Charlie Condon is the top-ranked prospect in this year’s draft, with a handful of college players closely behind him. 

The Cleveland Guardians own the first overall pick after winning the draft lottery. It will be intriguing to see how the first round plays out. Overall, this draft class features a strong crop of college position players, while the high school position player group is the weakest.

Below is a guide to Baseball Prospect Journal’s in-depth 2024 MLB draft coverage.

MLB Draft Profiles

The 2024 MLB draft marks my 10th year covering it and writing detailed stories on top draft prospects. I have written stories on 62 of this year’s top prospects. Read them all HERE.

In my previous nine years covering the draft, I interviewed 518 of the top draft prospects in that period, including four No. 1 overall picks. Multiple publications have quoted my work, including Baseball America, USA Today, MLB.com, The Arizona Republic, and The Dallas Morning News. I also have appeared on radio stations as an “MLB draft expert.”
