2014 Perfect Game MLB Draft preview content

Seniors in Demand

 
In the two drafts since a landmark Collective Bargaining Agreement between Major League Baseball and the Players Association introduced sweeping changes to the baseball’s first-year player draft, college seniors have had a surprising place of importance in the proceedings. In all, roughly 60 college seniors were factored into the top 10 rounds of both the 2012 and 2013 drafts. With major-league teams often needing flexibility to stay within their allowable bonus-pool limits, seniors, with their limited leverage, have played a key factor as budget-saving selections, and a significant number have been drafted much higher than their raw talent might otherwise warrant. No doubt, college seniors will be in demand again in this year’s proceedings, and Perfect Game has identified 100 of the most attractive players in that demographic.
