2023 MLB First-Year Player Draft

Rounds 1 and 2: 7:00 p.m., Sunday, July 9th

Media: ESPN, MLB Network,, fuboTV

Tigers’ picks:

#3 - OF Max Clark, Franklin Community HS (IN)

Scouts believe Clark can be the next superstar in the sport, and his floor is high enough to take a gamble with the No. 3 pick without too many concerns. For a prep bat, Clark shows all the signs of being a five-tool player in the big leagues. His power is undeniable at the high school level, and he might be a better centerfield prospect than either Crews or Langford. -Bless You Boys

#37 - SS Kevin McGonigle, Monsignor Bonner HS (PA)

McGonigle possesses some of the best pure hit ability in the class. He’s a proven hitter, consistently playing well against high-level competition in nationally ranked tournaments. It’s a hit-over-power profile with the potential for average power at the highest level. He’s a good athlete with good instincts in the field, making second base his likely long-term home defensively. -Prospects Live

#45 - 2B Max Anderson, University of Nebraska

Max Anderson just hits. He is viewed as a power-over-hit player but he has shown there is power there as well as strong contact rates. There are questions about his future position as well as about his athleticism and size. His production though has been too good and too consistent to ignore, doubt Max Anderson at your own risk. -Prospects Live
