For the past several weeks, we've provided (almost) daily coverage to prepare you for the 2016 MLB Draft. Now that the big day has finally arrived, here's how you can follow along at home:
Thursday, June 9th, 2016
-6:00 pm EST, MLB Network - A live, one-hour draft preview will kick off the network's coverage.
-7:00 pm EST, MLB Network - Live, pick-by-pick coverage of the first round, supplemental rounds and second round.
It should be available to stream on MLB.com as well.
Friday, June 10th, 2016
-1:00 pm EST, streaming on MLB.com - Rounds 3-10
Saturday, June 11, 2016
-12:00 pm EST, streaming on MLB.com - Rounds 11-40
Although the first amateur draft was held in 1965, MLB Network only started televising the first round live back in 2009. Now the first day is broadcast live, and after that you can stream it on MLB's website. This makes a lot of sense. Unless you are a die hard fan, or actually know someone in the draft, there's no real reason to tune into all 40 rounds. If you do want to stream the second and third day on MLB.com, there is a chance that you will hear all kinds of background noises including dogs and kids on car phones.
Luckily for you, if you don't want to watch more than just the first round, Jason and Tanya will be providing live coverage of all of the Yankees' draft picks.
You have a little time remaining to familiarize yourself with everything you need to know about the draft. Here are some helpful resources:
