2019 Mock Draft

PBR Staff

Brace yourselves, the 2019 MLB Draft is less than a month away. While it’s still early to match up players with teams, especially deeper in the first round, it won’t stop us from trying to make predictions. Below you’ll find a mock draft with picks by Nathan Rode, David Seifert and Shooter Hunt, our resident draft experts.

The first pick is seemingly a lock with C Adley Rutschman (Oregon State) going to the Baltimore Orioles. The next two picks figure to be SS Bobby Witt Jr. (Colleyville Heritage HS, TX) and 1B Andrew Vaughn (California). The order is still debatable, but they have solidified themselves as top three selections. There is a bit of a consensus on the next group of names, though the order is anybody’s guess at this point. After that, once you get to about picks 14 or 15, things are likely to get crazy.

The guys’ picks are below. To hear their explanations, listen to the podcast above. We’ll do it again in a few weeks and after the draft we’ll laugh at the predictions made or pat each other on the back.
