    Although we may not see them show up in the big show any time soon because, face it, is it very common for a rookie to jump straight from playing college ball (much less high school) to the major leagues, nope, not very. Instead, we'll see them get snapped up by colleges(I'm talking about high school players here), and MLB farm teams. What is sort of exciting about this is that we never know if we are scanning over a name of a future Rookie of the Year. Dare I say, future MVP? So here is the top 20 draft prospects for this season, college and high school. The rest of the top 200 can be found at this link, as well as this MLB page.

    Eh, it's nice to think about, I guess. Call me a cynic, but I really don't get overly excited about who gets drafted out of college or high school, for that matter. Trades between MLB teams, yeah sure, bring it. College baseball just doesn't come up on my radar.
