MLB Draft Tracker: Breaking down each team’s first-round pick

The Orioles have just enjoyed their best stretch of baseball in a long time. On Sunday, they will receive the first pick in the MLB draft for the second time in four years.

Sunday’s draft is happening later than usual on the calendar to coincide with the All-Star break, but the added anticipation has only heightened the anticipation. There are many sons of former Major League stars expected to be taken early — Drew Jones (son of Andrew Jones), Jackson Holliday (Matt Holliday) and Justin Crawford (Carl Crawford), to name a few — along with Kumar Rocker, who was a first-round pick by the Mets last year but did not sign amid injury concerns. Rocker has a chance to be taken in the first round once again on Sunday night.
