The 2010 MLB Draft is Almost Here

The 2010 MLB Draft will begin on June 7. Baseball-Reference has the draft order with supplemental picks here and a really cool list of players who were picked at those slots with the collective MLB Wins Above Replacement from each player picked at that slot–Matt Bush was one of two No. 1 overall picks who never made it to the majors, can you name the other?

You probably know a good deal about it already and the top 15 picks are pretty much solidified, unless there’s some massive mis-step by one of the teams. The expected top 3 are Bryce Harper to the Nationals, Manny Machado to the Pirates and Jameson Taillon to the Orioles. After that, Drew Pomeranz, Chris Sale, Deck McGuire, Yasmani Grandal and a few others.

As Adam W. Foster said in our Q&A, the picks after that are going to be a mix-and-match, but they’re mostly good players into pick 60. Lincoln Hamilton has his list of top 50 picks here.

The Dodgers have one pick in that range, pick No. 28. They didn’t offer arbitration to two type A players this off-season, Randy Wolf and Orlando Hudson, and will not be compensated in the draft as other teams were. Hey-Zeus was that awful.

The draft will go three days, June 7-9. The opening round (June 7) will air on MLB Network, pre-show will start at 6 p.m. EST.
