Baseball America’s 2014 draft coverage continues with our draft recap. John Manuel recaps the 2014 drafts of the Atlanta Braves, Miami Marlins, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals.
Three NL East teams had top 10 picks overall (Marlins-Tyler Kolek; Mets-Michael Conforto; Phillies-Aaron Nola) as it was a down year in the majors for those organizations. The Braves drafted No. 32 overall, selecting North Carolina prep catcher Braxton Davidson, while the Nats went with UNLV righthander Erick Fedde, despite his recent Tommy John surgery.
You can track all of your team’s picks as well as who has signed with our Draft Database. The database also features complete information on each team’s signing budget, and how they’re tracking against that budget, as well as a player by player breakdown of how much the players have signed for compared to the bonus slot for each pick. The database also includes our comprehensive scouting reports for BA subscribers.
Also for Baseball America subscribers, don’t forget to check out all of our team-by-team draft organization reports; comprehensive looks at what each team did on the first night of the draft from each of our major league correspondents.
Our coverage of the 2015 draft begins now, with Clint Longenecker at the Perfect Game National Showcase this week, followed by the USA Baseball Tournament of Stars next week.
