It may be just five rounds this year, but we’re still all in on the MLB draft! Our Max Rieper and Shaun Newkirk are joined by Alex Duvall of Royals Farm Report to preview who the Royals may be looking at for the draft. Plus we look back on the 2015 draft class five years later. Some of the things we talked about:

How will teams change their strategy for a five-round draft?

Who will the Royals be looking at with their picks?

Should the Royals consider their farm system is pitching-heavy?

Did the Royals have a poor 2015 draft class or was it just a bad year?

Links to some of the things we discussed:

Shaun Newkirk’s names to know for the 2020 draft.

Max Rieper’s look back at the 2015 draft.
