Minnesota Draft Preview



By Rob Allison and Nathan Rode

The 2016 Major League Draft takes place June 9-11. In advance of the draft, Prep Baseball Report is posting a summary of each state in the coverage area with scouting reports on the top high school draft prospects.

Minnesota has had two preps go in the top 10 rounds in the past four years and could have its highest pick since RHP Mitch Brown (Century HS, MN) went in the second to the Indians. Earning that distinction would be RHP Nick Hanson (Prior Lake HS, MN), a 6-foot-6, 210-pound righty committed to Kentucky.
