2016 MLB Draft Preview Content

Patrick Ebert     

Once again Perfect Game plans extensive coverage of Major League Baseball’s 2016 first-year player draft, complete with player rankings, comprehensive scouting reports and profiles, and regular updates and features on the elite prospects.

We’ll enhance our coverage with mock drafts, draft chats and videos of top prospects. This content began last November, with a variety of top prospect lists as linked below, as well as our weekly Draft Pack series which kicked off in mid-March. In this series for 12 weeks 10 players are broken down in detail every Friday leading up to the draft. In the end, 120 players will be profiled with detailed scouting reports and supplemental videos. Links to those features can be found below.

Our preview coverage ramped up in recent weeks with our update of the
top 100 draft-eligible prospects and draft-related chats. A collaborative staff mock draft and a feature focusing on this year's top tools will hit the site on Wednesday and Friday respectively of this week. This coverage will continue through the draft itself, which is scheduled for June 9-11.

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.

PG draft experts David Rawnsley, Patrick Ebert, Jheremy Brown, Andrew Krause and Brian Sakowski, along with PG feature writer Jeff Dahn, will be 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 15 signing deadline.
