2011 Draft Preview
Allan Simpson        
Published: Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Perfect Game plans extensive coverage of Major League Baseball’s 2011 first-year player draft, complete with extensive and exclusive player rankings, comprehensive scouting reports and profiles, and regular updates and features on the elite prospects.
 
We’ll also provide daily blogs of draft comings and goings, and enhance our coverage with mock drafts, draft chats and videos of top prospects.
 
Our daily coverage will begin on Wednesday, April 27, and continue through the draft itself, which is scheduled from June 6-8. You can get a thorough rundown of our planned coverage by viewing the draft schedule below.
 
As you can see, we’ll provide comprehensive national and state rankings of thousands of potential draft picks, along with elaborate scouting reports on more than 200 prospects and mini-reports on hundreds more. We’ll also provide much more content, including signing bonuses on hundreds of the top picks in the last several drafts.
 
PG draft experts David Rawnsley and Allan Simpson will be at the forefront of all our coverage, but we’ll also get considerable input from PG’s Patrick Ebert and Kendall Rogers.
 
Most of Perfect Game’s considerable draft content will be available free of charge, but it will take an Insider-level subscription to view some of the content—and even a Premium-level subscription, in some cases. To subscribe to PG Crosschecker’s more exclusive draft content, please click here.
