The 2020 MLB Amateur Entry Draft has been limited to five rounds.
The Miami Marlins will pick third overall, and are limited to just six acquisitions, including their competitive “B” round pick. With this unprecedented change to shorten the draft, how will management choose to spend their selections?
The four players going first are generally assumed to be Arizona State’s first baseman Spencer Torkelson, Vanderbilt outfielder Austin Martin, Texas A&M left-hander Asa Lacy, and Georgia right-hander Emerson Hancock.
