National League Central Division Draft Preview

The draft approaches this week, and for many of us it will offer a welcome respite from the day to day will they, won’t they game MLB has put us through. We’ll discuss of course what the Pirates do at length, but we also want to make sure we keep an eye on what our NL Central foes have on tap.

With only five rounds, paying attention to all the picks should be possible for even the most casual of fan and most of those selected have a pretty decent chance of actually making their respective clubs at some point.

Pirates
6 Picks
– 7, 31 (Competitive Balance), 44, 3 more picks round 3-5

This includes no compensatory picks and One Competitive Balance Pick in Round A (31)

Cubs
5 Picks
– 16, 51, 3 more picks round 3-5

This includes no compensatory picks and no competitive balance picks

Reds
6 Picks
– 12, 48, 65 (Competitive Balance), 3 more picks round 3-5

This includes no compensatory picks and One Competitive Balance Pick in Round B (65)

Brewers
5 Picks
– 20, 53, 3 more picks round 3-5

This includes no compensatory picks and no competitive balance picks

Cardinals
7 Picks
– 21, 54, 63 (Competitive Balance), 70 (Compensation Pick) 3 more picks round 3-5

This includes One Compensatory Pick (70 When Atlanta signed Ozuna) and One Competitive Balance Pick in Round B (63 Received in a trade from the Rays)
I should also note the Cardinals traded their number 37 Competitive Balance Round A pick to Tampa Bay. The MLB draft begins on Wednesday night and Craig and I will bring you analysis and opinion each night as it plays out right here.
