For the first time ever, the MLB Draft was supposed to be held at the site of the NCAA College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska. Instead, because of COVID-19, this years draft is going to be held at Studio 42 on Wednesday and Thursday June 10th-11th on ESPN and MLB Network. Also because of COVID-19, instead of the regular 40 round draft, this draft is only going to be 5 rounds. Round 1 is on June 10th at 7:00 PM EST and rounds 2-5 are on June 11th at 5:00 PM EST.
