Major League Baseball kicked off the Draft for 2021 in Denver on Sunday night. The Pittsburgh Pirates took Louisville catcher Henry Davis with first-choice, and Vanderbilt right-hand Jack Leiter became No. 2 overall to the Rangers. A total of 36 picks were made on Sunday evening. Here are our round one takeaways.
However, the 2021 MLB Draft still has a lot of picks to go. This year’s draft includes 20 rounds (versus a five-round draft last year, but still only half of the 40-lap process the competition used). Rounds 2-10 are scheduled for Monday and rounds 11-20 will be held on Tuesday.
Here’s the information for Days 2 and 3 of the 2021 MLB Draft:

tuesday 12 july: Rounds 11-20
