Ok...I always liked getting that 1st Rounder AB's or IP's in the first part of spring training :-(

That is exactly why I'm asking...still not sure what the answer is!

Hopefully the 15th, not the 22nd.

This has been a very long chain which I have not been following closely. Where have we landed?

From Steve:

A couple of small changes to the draft for next season.

1. Draft will be shrunk from 10 to 8 rounds.
2. 1st round draft will occur after first update -- not immediately following the creation of draft prospects.

Got to say I'm not exactly sure I like the change of the timing of the first draft round. It was nice to get a guy into some spring training games immediately after he is drafted. I guess it was done so that there aren't a bunch of dead weeks in the season for drafting with the shrinking to only 8 rounds.

Could the amateur/undrafted thing mean that players can still get training even while they are not on a team? That would be an interesting change, could open up the free agent/waiver market some by having more viable players available.

Did I miss an announcement about official changes to the draft?

Don't we have the front page news for a reason?
