The two biggest prospect events of the year are the Draft and the Futures Game, held on four consecutive days leading up to the All-Star Game. Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Jason Ratliff were on hand for all of it in Los Angeles and break down both events on the latest MLB Pipeline Podcast. They start with the top of the Draft, which began with the two best players (Jackson Holliday to the Orioles, Druw Jones to the Diamondbacks) before the Rangers dropped a Kumar Rocker bombshell at No. 3. From there, they delve into other first-round surprises, some notable Day Two picks and which players will arrive in the Majors the soonest. Then there's plenty of Futures Game talk centering on the standouts and Jim and Jonathan's now-annual unofficial batting practice home run derby competition. They wrap it up with a listener mailbag question about the Mets' Draft, which leads to some discussion of which organizations had the best efforts.
