We’re 10 days away from the 2023 MLB draft, which will take place July 7-9 in Seattle in conjunction with Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game festivities. The first round kicks off at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have the No. 1 pick, followed by the Washington Nationals, Detroit Tigers, Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins. The 2023 draft class features top-tier talent that was on display during this year’s Men’s College World Series, including LSU’s Dylan Crews, the consensus top draft prospect since Adley Rutschman in 2019, and teammate Paul Skenes, the best draft pitching prospect in a dozen years (since Gerrit Cole in 2011), as well as Florida’s Wyatt Langford.

Like last year, this year’s draft will consist of 20 rounds.

Who does ESPN MLB draft expert Kiley McDaniel think is the best prospect this year? Which potential future star is your favorite team targeting with its first-round pick?
