The 2021 MLB draft class, as a whole, may not be as deep as this past year’s group, but it may be better at the top with Vanderbilt right-handers Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter.
Other top prospects include prep stars Brady House, Braylon Bishop, Christian Little, Tyree Reed, and Luke Leto, as well as Miami catcher Adrian Del Castillo, Florida outfielder Jud Fabian, Louisville third baseman Alex Binelas and UCLA shortstop Matt McLain.
In the table below, SOS indicates a team’s remaining strength of schedule. Rank indicates a team’s remaining SOS ranking.
The ‘2019’ column represents a club’s win-loss record last season, which breaks ties. In the case of identical win-loss records (percentages), the club with the lowest win-loss percentage from the prior season gets the higher pick in the current draft order.
This will be updated about once a week through September 21, then once a day for the final week of the MLB regular season.
Note: This is assuming enough of the 60-game schedule is played to satisfy whatever the league’s requirement is for using reverse order of win-loss percentage to determine draft order. If the season is cut short the league may use other means, such as last year’s order being repeated, combining last year’s win-loss with 2020, a lottery, etc.
