A Look Back: 1999
*No longer active. Signed major league contract. #Did not sign.
HOW THEY DID IT THEN . . .
HOW THEYD DO IT NOW . . .
FIRST PLAYERS TO MAJORS
Royals. The Royals made judicious use of four first-round picks and have gotten a lot of mileage so far out of Brian Sanches (2), Ken Harvey (5) and Mark Ellis (9).
Indians. Cleveland wisely sacrificed its first-round pick to sign Roberto Alomar, but it has almost nothing to show for the picks after that either.
MOST ASTUTE PICK
Bobby Bradley, rhp, Pirates (1/8)
Jacob Peavy, rhp, Padres (15)
BIGGEST FIRST-ROUND REACH
Corey Myers, ss, Diamondbacks (4th pick)
