2021 MLB Draft tracker: Full list of Day 2 picks; analysis of every first-round selection


MLB’s annual amateur draft is underway. The 20-round process kicked off Sunday night with the first round. The Pirates held the No. 1 pick and used it on Louisville catcher Henry Davis. Right-hander Jack Leiter went second overall to the Rangers and his Vanderbilt teammate Kumar Rocker was the 10th overall pick to the Mets. 

Overall, there were 36 picks made on Sunday night, including Competitive Balance Round A and the Reds’ free agent compensation pick. Here are our takeaways from the first night of the draft.

Rounds 2-10 will took place Monday and rounds 11-20 will take place Tuesday. The draft was shortened from 40 rounds to five rounds last year as a cost-cutting move during the pandemic. There will be 20 rounds this year. Here’s how to watch.

Below is analysis of every first-round pick as well as our tracker for every pick on Day 2. Day 3 starts with the 11th round (and 313th overall pick) on Tuesday at noon ET.
