Even though the Major League Baseball Players Association has made a proposal to MLB for a season of 89 games, there is no baseball on the horizon, but there will be a baseball draft this week, though not in its usual form. You can watch the first round starting at 6:00 PM CT Wednesday on ESPN, with ESPN2 airing the next four rounds starting at 4:00 PM CT Thursday.

According to ESPN, here are some key points heading into the draft:

  • The draft will be just five rounds instead of 40
  • Slot money will be identical to in 2019 (and will remain fixed for 2021)
  • Undrafted players can sign for a maximum of $20,000
