The 3rd Man In

The3rdManIn.com’s MLB Draft prospect history

MLB-Draft

Over the last three years, I’ve interviewed 98 MLB First-Year Player Draft selections, including 33 first-round picks. Out of those 33 first-rounders, eight of them were taken in the first five picks, including prep outfielder Mickey Moniak and prep shortstop Royce Lewis, who each went No. 1 overall.

My coverage has been quoted by many publications, including by Baseball America, 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 three years by draft class:
