Here are my summaries and opinions on the first 10 rounds of the MLB draft for all 15 American League teams, with the NL summaries to follow Thursday.
I don't do "winners and losers," a fool's exercise in the baseball draft. Instead, I tell you what I liked and didn't like, and highlight players of note. To see the full Draft Tracker for Rounds 1-10, click here.
A few relevant notes:
• The number in parentheses indicates the round in which that player was selected.
• When I refer to "my rankings," I'm referring to my Big Board, my Top 100 draft prospects, which can be found here.
• If we have scouting profiles of the player mentioned, his name will link to these in-depth profiles, written by Christopher Crawford, Eric Longenhagen and myself.
• We use the 20-80 grading scale for all MLB prospects.
