What Affect Will the Current State of America Have on the 2020 MLB Draft Which is Scheduled to Start Tonight

The 2020 MLB Draft is scheduled to begin tonight and end tomorrow, but it won’t be a normal draft by any means. So what do we need to expect?

For starters, potential draftees will be at a disadvantage, having been unable to show their ultimate potential before high school and college seasons were halted in the heart of the season.

Secondly, teams will be at a disadvantage having not been able to scout the draft prospects at full potential.

Lastly, this year’s draft will only have five rounds, as apposed to the normal 40 rounds. This means instead of the 30 clubs being able to draft 30 prospects, the 30 teams will only be able to draft 5 prospects due to restrictions.

The 2020 MLB Draft will begin tonight at 6pm CT on ESPN and the MLB Network.
