The 2017 MLB Draft resumes on Tuesday afternoon, with baseball teams continuing their annual replenishing of domestic amateur talent. After 75 picks in the first two rounds on Monday, we will see 240 picks on Tuesday with Rounds 3-10.
There is no TV coverage of the draft on Tuesday, but MLB.com will provide online streaming, including analysis and information from draft gurus Jim Callis and Jonathan Mayo from MLB’s New York Studios.
There is a 30-minute pre-show to begin Tuesday’s coverage at 12:30 p.m. ET, followed by the draft itself at 1 p.m.
There are one-minute intervals in between picks for all eight rounds on Tuesday. That interval shrinks to zero on Wednesday, with no time in between picks for rounds 11-40 on the draft’s final day.
Three players who finished in the top 10 in MVP voting in 2016 were drafted in Rounds 3-10. Mookie Betts, drafted in the fifth round in 2011 by the Boston Red Sox, finished second in AL MVP balloting last year. In the National League, Anthony Rizzo (sixth round in 2007 by the Red Sox) finished fourth for the Chicago Cubs, and Justin Turner (seventh round in 2006 by the Cincinnati Reds) finished ninth for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
