The first day of the three-day 2022 MLB Draft is underway.

This year’s draft comes after baseball’s youngest stars showed out in Saturday’s MLB All-Star Futures Game.

The Baltimore Orioles hold the No. 1 overall pick, while the New York Mets have two early first-round picks at No. 11 and No. 14. The Colorado Rockies and Cincinnati Reds, both of which forfeited their second-round pick, hold this year’s compensatory picks, in addition to their given picks at No. 10 and No. 18, respectively. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers are the lone team without a first-round selection, but they do have the first pick of the second round at No. 40 overall.

Nearly 600 players will be selected, with the first 80 picks taking place Sunday, followed by Rounds 3-10 on Monday and concluding with Rounds 11-20 on Tuesday.

Here are the highlights from the 2022 MLB Draft:

Players to watch out for include second-generation stars like Georgia high school outfielder Druw Jones, son of 10-time Gold Glove winner Andruw Jones …
