MLB Draft 2021

The Major League Baseball Draft of 2021 occurred on July 11-13th and took place at the Bellco Theater in Denver, Colorado. The draft started with the first picks on Sunday, two through ten on Monday and 11 through 20 on Tuesday to end the draft. Prospects have been heavily graded by pitching/batting stats and highs throughout their baseball careers whether that be from a credited university or high school.

Included in the rounds were compensation picks and competitive balance rounds. Compensation Picks are compensatory draft picks that are granted to teams based upon the players’ yearly salary. These picks are determined by a team losing more free agents than it had taken in, in previous years and these are awarded between rounds three and seven. Competitive Balance Picks are 10 teams with the lowest revenue coming in, as well as the 10 smallest markets who will receive extra picks in a single round.

The number one draft pick for the 2021 draft was Henry Davis, he was selected by the Pittsburg Pirates. Coming in second was Jack Leiter, the right-handed pitcher who was selected by the Texas Rangers. The third pick in the draft went to Jackson Jobe who was selected by the Detroit Tigers. Recent high school graduate, Marcelo Mayer was the fourth pick in the draft and was selected by the Boston Red Sox. To finish the top five picks, Colton Cowser of Sam Houston State University was drafted to play for the Baltimore Orioles.
