2020 MLB Draft Countdown: 34-1

With all the craziness going on in the world, a family road trip, and ongoing negotiations between MLB and the MLBPA, I simply ran out of time to do the full breakdown of each player. So here I put my final 34 in list form and will do a deeper dive post draft. A few notes as I look at it, lots of discussion as to who goes number one, I think Torkelson goes number one, but my pick would be Austin Martin. I like his bat and ability to play a premium position. Pete Crow-Armstrong I doubt slides to 20 as the amount of time he had in front of scouts pre-COVID may help him as much as any prep player in the draft. The first round will be college heavy for numerous reasons, the biggest two being the lack of access to bonus slot flexibility as a result of the shortened draft and HS players not scouted as much as college players have given the early end to the season,
