Twins, Rockies, Mets Drafted Most Players In BA 500

The 2012 MLB Draft is in the books, and it’s time to see which players from our BA 500 were selected by your favorite team. It was a historical year for the draft with stricter consequences for going over the assigned budget outlined in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. As such, there were various strategies each team employed, especially as the draft went into the later rounds. Leading the way with the most Top 500 prospects were the Twins, whom also have the most money to spend of any team.

Disclaimer: In no way is this list a reflection of how well each team drafted. For example, the Blue Jays only had 11 of our Top 500, but they selected five of the top 45 prospects. Obviously, another caveat is that these players still need to sign before any real conclusions can be drawn. This year, teams will have up until 5 p.m. ET on July 13 to sign their players. Until then, some conclusions that can be drawn are that the Blue Jays, Twins, Cardinals, Astros, and Pirates all had very good drafts. They each had six of our top 100 prospects.
