The 2023 Draft’s first two days and ten rounds have been completed, but the laborious process of acquiring potential future stars is far from over.

As part of the All-Star festivities in Seattle on Tuesday, Day 3 of the Draft begins, and some of the participants in this year’s Midsummer Classic are well aware of the value that can be found in later rounds.

Five of the current year’s All-Stars were taken and endorsed in the tenth round or some other time when they previously entered expert ball: Jordan Romano placed 10, Nathan Eovaldi placed 11, Josh Hader placed 19, J.D. Martinez placed 20, and David Bednar placed 35. That’s an exceptional starter, a dominant DH, and three outstanding pitchers whose names were not announced until very late in the process.

Pondering which late-rounders could be the All-Stars of tomorrow? There is only one way to see for yourself.

How, when to observe

Day 3 of the 2023 First-Year Player Draft formally starts Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET. All picks will be gushed free of charge on, and there will be no postponement between choices. On the official Draft Tracker and by following @MLBDraft on Twitter, you can also follow along with Rounds 11 through 20.

Most ideal players that anyone could hope to find

Cameron Johnson, LHP, IMG Institute (Fla.) (No. 42 on MLB Pipeline’s Main 250)
Roch Cholowsky, SS, Hamilton (Ariz.) HS (No. 44)
Trent Caraway, 3B/SS, JSerra Catholic (Calif.) HS (No. 70) Zane Adams, Porter (Texas) High School LHP (No. Will Gasparino, OF, Harvard-Westlake High School (Calif.) (No. 75) Texas’ Tanner Witt, RHP (No. 76) Caden Sorrell, OF, Marcus High School (Texas), 79)
Joey Volchko, RHP, Redwood (Calif.) HS (No. 80) Liam Peterson, Calvary Christian (Florida) High School RHP (No. 85) Jake Brown, LHP, HS in Sulphur (La.) 93) Complete list of the best players currently available » Witt, who pitched only 10 1/3 innings for Texas this spring after recovering from Tommy John surgery, is the tenth of the remaining top 10 prospects. The other nine are almost certain to respect their school responsibilities subsequent to dropping this far, however it isn’t entirely impossible that they could be taken and marked all things considered.

Clubs can spend up to $150,000 on players chosen in Rounds 11 through 20 without having that money count toward their bonus pool. Any overages are counted against the pool, so a company with a lot of early savings may have room to hire top talent late on Tuesday.

Furthermore, attempting that on Day 3 carries significantly lower risks. Clubs have an additional incentive to sign all of their early picks because an unsigned player’s slot bonus still counts toward the pool for the first ten rounds. There is no such punishment in the eleventh round and then some, so expect a few major swings from clubs Tuesday regardless of whether they interface on time.

All-time talent in Rounds 11 through 20 The Rounds 11 through 20 have brought Hall of Famers Andre Dawson (11th, 1975), Ryne Sandberg (20th, 1978), and Jim Thome (13th, 1989) to Major League Baseball. MVPs Jose Canseco (15th in 1982), Jeff Kent (20th in 1989), Don Mattingly (19th in 1979), Dave Parker (14th in 1970), and Albert Pujols (13th in 1999), who just retired. Cy Young Award winners Bret Saberhagen and Orel Hershiser (17th in 1979).
