Reviewing some options for the Dodgers with the 29th overall pick in the 2020 Draft.
On Wednesday, Major League Baseball will conduct official business again with the 2020 amateur draft. As the owners and players try to come to terms on a framework to start the season, an abbreviated draft will be held over the next two days. The Los Angeles Dodgers will make their first selection with the 29th overall pick.
So as you get ready for draft night, we thought it would be useful to highlight some of the players being mocked to the Dodgers in the first round.
The Dodgers have $5.9 million in bonus pool money to use on their six picks in the five-round draft. Beyond their first round pick, they will select in each of the remaining four rounds, on top of a Competitive Balance Round B pick they received from Minnesota in the Kenta Maeda trade (66th 0verall).
We looked at the Dodgers history of compensatory picks earlier this week. We also looked at the best first round picks in team history. And if you’re curious about players selected 29th overall, we ranked the top players drafted with that particular pick.
You have everything you need in prep of the draft from a historical perspective, so let’s run down some players who might hear their name called tonight by the Dodgers.
