    2021 Draft Discussion

    Never too early to talk about the draft next year.

    Reds should select around the middle of the round. They also have a competitive balance pick at the end of the first round. In addition, Bauer and Castellanos are likely to receive qualifying offers, and depending on what they do, the Reds could end up with two more picks at the end on the first round.

    As for players to watch, Kumer Rocker is the top of this class. The rest will be muddled, because of limited summer ball this year, and we don't know, because of covid, what colleges and high schools are going to do in the spring.

    Castellanos is not a free agent. He’s on 4 year contract with this offseason have a player option to opt out.

    I know people don't like drafting HS pitchers in the first round, but late middle of the first round is where you'd probably snag those HS pitchers with top 7 pick talent who drop because they're high school pitchers...

    Just saying.

    Yes. That's what I meant. Sorry if it was a bit confusing.

    I'm hoping the Reds stick with the new regime's philosophy in the early rounds. College arms and high impact hitters (predominately HS). I have no problem with HS hurlers after a few rounds.

    The only team without a first-round pick is the Astros, who lost their top two selections in both 2020 and 2021 as a punishment for sign stealing. They would have selected 15th overall if they hadn't been penalized.

    Because each team's highest choice is exempt from forfeiture as free-agent compensation, the only way the first-round order below could change would be if a club exceeds the luxury-tax threshold ($208 million) by more than $40 million. In that case, its selection would drop 10 spots. This happened to the Red Sox in 2019, when their top choice slid from No. 33 overall in the first round to No. 43 overall in the second round.

    Here's the order for the 2021 Draft:

    1) Pirates (19-41)
    2) Rangers (22-38)
    3) Tigers (23-35)
    4) Red Sox (24-36)
    5) Orioles (25-35)
    6) D-backs (25-35)
    7) Royals (26-34)
    8) Rockies (26-34)
    9) Angels (26-34)
    10) Mets (26-34)
    11) Nats (26-34)
    12) Mariners (27-33)
    13) Phillies (28-32)
    14) Giants (29-31)
    15) Brewers (29-31)
    16) Marlins (31-29)
    17) Reds (31-29)
    18) Cardinals (30-28)
    19) Blue Jays (32-28)
    20) Yankees (33-27)
    21) Cubs (34-26)
    22) White Sox (35-25)
    23) Indians (35-25)
    24) Braves (35-25)
    25) A's (36-24)
    26) Twins (36-24)
    27) Padres (37-23)
    28) Rays (40-20)
    29) Dodgers (43-17)
