Cardinals to pick late in MLB Draft

Lewis becomes the 11th first-overall pick advised by powerful agent Scott Boras. But on Monday, the first of three days of restocking farm systems with domestic amateur talent. The draft will pick up Tuesday with rounds 3 through 10.

How much time is there between picks?

The Dodgers have 40 picks in their 40 rounds, a pretty normal draft.

In 2001, the top prospects were collegiate pitcher Mark Pryor and high school catcher Joe Mauer. Wednesday is more of a lightning round, with no time in between picks, which makes sense because there are a whopping 900 selections slated for the final day.

The ghost of Deron Williams also pitched in, scoring his first points of the Finals after going scoreless for three entire games. The Cavaliers became the first team in NBA Finals history to rally from 3-1 down a year ago in dethroning the Warriors .

If he sticks as a pitcher, he'll be the first high school pitcher selected by the Reds in the first round since Nick Travieso went 14th overall in the 2012 Draft; if he sticks as a position player, he'll be the first since Cincinnati plucked Tyler Stephenson 10th overall in 2015. He's got that "it" factor that a No. 1 pick needs to survive and move forward and have success at the end of the journey.

The rest of the top five are rounded out by the Cincinnati Reds at No. 2, the San Diego Padres third, the Tampa Bay Rays picking fourth, followed by the Atlanta Braves.

"Royce is one of the elite athletes and makeup/intangible packages available at any draft", Twins vice president of player personnel Mike Radcliff said. In fact, there will only be four players at MLB Network studios in Secaucus, N.J. for the draft. The Twins are expected to draft high school pitcher/shortstop Hunter Greene out of California with the first overall pick.
