2013 Draft: Broadcast Schedule & Representatives

By

Via Conor Glassey: MLB has announced details for the 2013 Draft broadcast. A total of 73 picks — First round, Supplemental First Round, Competitive Balance Lottery Round A, Second Round, and Competitive Balance Lottery Round B — will be broadcast by MLB Network at 7pm ET on Thursday, June 6th. The broadcast will be preceded by an hour-long preview show. Day two (rounds 3-10) and day three (rounds 11-40) will be broadcast online at MLB.com on June 7th and 8th.

Willie Randolph and area scout Andy Cannizaro will represent the Yankees at MLB Network during the day one broadcast. Tino Martinez, Lee Mazzilli, and CC Sabathia have represented the team in previous years. The Bombers have four picks that night — 26th, 32nd, 33rd, and 66th overall — so that will be a lot of fun. The Yankees will be in Seattle for the start of ten-game, 12-day road trip that night, which means we’ll get to focus on the draft for a few hours before first pitch. Not as nice as last year’s off-day, but better than having to juggle with Red Sox-Yankees like 2008.

    Good for Cannizaro. Even though he was a crappy player he found a living for himself around the game he probably loves.

      I was gonna say, i thought i remember seeing him in some old Minor league stuff years back. Maybe he can be like KLong, never good enough for the show himself, but enough knowledge about the game himself to be able to teach and scout and what-not

      • Bob Buttons says:

        It’s certainly possible. A lot of people have the heart and the mind, but not the body. Just happens that some people existed in the eyes of the front offices. I mean, if P.J. Pilittere can do it…
