Published: Wednesday, May 07, 2014


Once again Perfect Game plans extensive coverage of Major League Baseball’s 2014 first-year player draft, complete with 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. This content began in January, with a variety of top prospect lists as linked below, as well as the beginning of our annual Draft Focus series. In this series, one player is broken down in detail, every weekday, leading up to the draft. In the end, 100 players will be profiled. Links to those features can be found in the portal to the right.

Our preview coverage ramped up in recent weeks with our update of the
top 100 draft-eligible prospects, a collaborative staff mock draft and a draft-related chat.  This coverage will continue through the draft itself, which is scheduled from June 5-7.

All of the links to these features, and so much more, can be found below as well as by visiting Perfect Game's main Draft page.

Long-time PG draft experts Allan Simpson and David Rawnsley will be joined by Frankie Piliere, Todd Gold, Jheremy Brown, Jeff Dahn, Matt Rodriguez and Patrick Ebert in providing this unrivaled draft content.

All of these features will be available at varying levels of our subscription service, PG Crosschecker. To subscribe to PG Crosschecker’s more exclusive draft content, please click here.

On draft day itself Perfect Game will be providing it's PG Draft LIVE! draft pick feature in which users can view picks by round and by team while also giving users the opportunity to search by a player's name.  Perfect Game will continue its coverage through the draft itself while profiling the players as they sign leading up to the July 18 signing deadline.
