(Redirected from 2017 amateur draft)

The 2017 First Year Player Draft will be the fifty-third Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. It will begin on June 12, 2017.

The St. Louis Cardinals will not make a draft pick until #94 in the draft. This is the result of signing free agent Dexter Fowler, which forced them to surrender their first-round pick to the Chicago Cubs as compensation, and of being forced to give up their next two top picks (#46 and #75) to the Houston Astros as punishment for former scouting director Chris Correa's hacking of the Astros scouting database in 2013 and 2014.
