Worth Following Up

Matt Blood -Premium Content

Though Major League Baseball did away with the draft-and-follow process by instituting an Aug. 15 signing deadline beginning with the 2007 draft, teams still pick players with the intention of evaluating them further in what is known as a summer follow. The summer follow usually arises for prospects who had performed well in the past but played poorly in the spring leading up to the draft, or for players who were hurt during the spring and were either unable to play or hampered by their injuries.
