The first round of the 2023 MLB draft is over, with the Pittsburgh Pirates selecting LSU star Paul Skenes with the No. 1 overall pick.

The Washington Nationals followed by drafting Skenes' teammate, Dylan Crews, with the No. 2 pick, making them the first pair of teammates to go 1-2 in MLB draft history. The Detroit Tigers took Max Clark with the third pick, the Texas Rangers followed with Wyatt Langford, and the Minnesota Twins rounded out the top five by selecting Walker Jenkins.

Like last year, this year's draft will consist of 20 rounds.
