The 2018 MLB Draft opened with the first round and more Monday night. The Tigers used the first overall pick on Auburn pitcher Casey Mize, who had spent much of the spring being projected as the draft’s top player.

The annual draft is a 40-round event that includes more than 1,000 picks, although less than 100 were announced on the opening evening, which included the first and second rounds, along with a host of compensation and competitive balance picks distributed to different teams.

Top players in this year’s class included Mize, Georgia Tech catcher Joey Bart and Oregon State infielder Nick Madrigal. The upper crust of the class leaned a bit toward college players over prep talent this year, although players such as Carter Stewart, Matthew Liberatore and Jarred Kelenic were highly coveted from the high school level.

The White Sox used the No. 4 overall pick on Madrigal, while the Cubs used the No. 24 overall pick on Stanford’s Nico Hoerner. A full order for all 40 rounds of the draft can be found here.
