Pennsylvania Draft Recap: First Ten Rounds


Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting

The 2019 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft has completed its first two days and 10 rounds of selections are complete. With 30 rounds yet to be conducted today beginning at noon a large number of Pennsylvania prospects are likely to still have their name called.

Following is a look at the two high school prospects and four college players from Pennsylvania to have been drafted over the course of the first 10 rounds.

We also lay claim to the draft's No. 4 overall pick in the 1st round, Vanderbilt junior outfielder JJ Bleday. The talented left-handed hitter was born and raised in Pennsylvania and began his high school career at Titusville High School. Bleday transferred to Mosley High School in Florida for his final two years of scholastic competition.
