2021 MLB Draft: Day 1 Draftchat

Sox Machine logo for MLB Draft coverage

One good thing about the MLB draft being moved back to July — we’ll have three days to devote full attention to it, rather than covering the players in between games that count.

It all starts tonight at 6 p.m. CT on ESPN and MLB Network. The White Sox will only make one pick tonight, as MLB is pushing back the second round into the second day of the draft.

Discuss the picks as they come in, and feel free to peruse the following resources to see who’s coming off the board.

Longenhagen says in the FG chat Henry Davis is likely to go #1

And that may mean Mayer ends up in our division (Tigers)

Josh nailed Detroit’s pick with Jackson Jobe!

Longenhagen and Goldstein are saying that Watson’s contract demands may mean he ends up going to school.

Unless he’s bluffing to get down to the White Sox ????

I was literally typing this question just now. It’s amazing to me that he’s still there. Wonder if the White Sox would be willing to go over on him and draw away from their 2-5 pool money.

Trooper Galactus

So much for that idea. Big get for Miami.

Five more teams pick before the White Sox. Best remaining are Ty Madden, Matt McLain, Jordan Wicks, Anthony Solometo, Joe Mack, and Will Taylor, per MLB.com. Colson Montgomery also still on the board, though if Wicks somehow falls to 22, I can’t imagine the White Sox passing on him.

Possible White Sox 3rd Round target now skipping the draft.
