The3rdManIn.com’s MLB Draft prospect history

MLB-Draft

Over the last four years, I’ve interviewed 133 MLB draft selections, including 44 first-round picks. Out of those 44 first-rounders, 11 of them were taken in the first five picks, including prep outfielder Mickey Moniak, prep shortstop Royce Lewis and college right-handed pitcher Casey Mize, who each went No. 1 overall.

My coverage has been quoted by many publications, including by Baseball America, USA Today, The Arizona Republic, Bleacher Report and MLB Trade Rumors. I’ve also made radio appearances as a MLB draft expert.

Here are all the prospects I’ve interviewed the last four years by draft class:
