The 2013 Major League Baseball First Year Player Selection is over, which means that mock drafts will soon pop up projecting next year's draft.
It is easy to predict which player from the class of 2014 will be selected first in the draft. That's because Drew Ward
of Leedey (Okla.)
, the No. 3 prospect in the MaxPreps class of 2014
, was already taken with the No. 105 pick overall by the Washington Nationals. The shortstop, who will likely convert to either third or first base at the next level, was reclassified as a senior prior to the start of the 2013 season and thus became eligible for the 2013 draft.
