2020 Amateur Draft

From BR Bullpen

(Redirected from 2020 amateur draft)

The 2020 First Year Player Draft will be the fifty-sixth Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. It will be held in Omaha, Nebraska from June 10th to June 12th, right before the 2020 College World Series begins there.

The Houston Astros were originally scheduled to have pick #30 (the final one in the first round proper) but were forced to surrender it, as well as their second-round pick, as punishment for a sign-stealing scheme implemented during the 2017 season.
