How to watch 2013 MLB Draft online with live streaming from MLB.com

Mike Stobe

Didn't pick up the crazy-expensive cable package that includes MLB Network? Never fear. You can still catch most of the MLB Draft action live, all you need is a half-way decent internet connection.

Major League Baseball is taking a page out of the NFL's playbook by making this weekend's Amateur Draft an event not to be missed. To accomplish this, the league has made the 2013 Draft more accessible to Average Joe baseball fan than ever before by stepping up its online coverage in a big way.

Much of the Draft will be available for live streaming at MLB.com, but there are a plethora of other ways -- including including app add-ons! -- to keep up with it this weekend if you lack the time, desire, or necessary bandwidth to stream the coverage from your computer.

Here's a breakdown of the streaming coverage available this weekend:

MLB.com Live Coverage

  • 6:00 p.m. ET - MLB Draft Preview

If you're running errands over the weekend and are tired of filtering through unwanted Tweets, you can also follow along on the MLB At Bat app by finding the Draft Tracker under the "More" tab on your iPhone or Android.
