2020 MLB Draft: Times, how to watch, top prospects & more

The MLB Draft is set to take place Wednesday despite the season being on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The college baseball and high school baseball seasons were cut short, preventing players from reaching either the NCAA tournament or state championships.

The Detroit Tigers have the first pick of the draft after finishing the 2019 season with the worst record in baseball. It’s the second time in three years the Tigers will have the No. 1 pick.

The draft will be shortened to five rounds because of the pandemic.

Here are some other things to know about the draft.
