Who are the top prospects in the 2023 MLB Draft?

How MLB Draft order is determined

The draft order for the MLB Draft is determined by a combination of factors, including:

  • The previous season's standings: The teams with the worst records in the previous season will have the highest odds of picking first in the draft.
  • The draft lottery: A lottery is held to determine the first six picks in the draft. The teams that did not make the playoffs in the previous season are eligible for the lottery. The three teams with the worst records have the best odds of winning the top pick, with the remaining odds decreasing in reverse order of regular season records.
  • The playoff teams: The teams that made the playoffs in the previous season are ranked based on when they were eliminated from the postseason. The team that lost in the World Series will pick last in the first round, and the team that lost in the Wild Card Round will pick first.
  • Revenue sharing status: Teams that receive revenue sharing from MLB will pick after teams that do not receive revenue sharing.
