2013 MLB Draft Order: Where Each Team Will Pick on Draft's Final Day
The first two days of the 2013 Major League Baseball draft may be over, but its most chaotic day still remains.
While Days 1 and 2 featured just 10 rounds between the two of them, the MLB squeezes an incredible 30 rounds into Day 3.
The later rounds have proven to be the landing spot of some of baseball's biggest stars. Names like Mark Buehrle (38th) and Russell Martin (17th) were taken late into Day 3 before turning into big time major league players.

- Houston Astros
- Chicago Cubs
- Colorado Rockies
- Minnesota Twins
- Cleveland Indians
- Miami Marlins

Top Prospects Available
Ryan Boldt, CF, Red Wing HS (Minn.)
Considering ESPN's Keith Law considered Ryan Boldt a potential top-40 pick, it's a fairly big surprise that he's still available.
Yes RT @tmengd: Could Ryan Boldt with his injury be the type of player the Astros could try to pry away from college at 40 with extra money?— keithlaw (@keithlaw) May 8, 2013
At 6'2" and 185 pounds, he still has some room to grow as he matures and his left-handed swing shows the potential for big time numbers. He made a name for himself by batting leadoff for Team USA this summer, and was also named the MVP of the Perfect Game All-American Classic game, per MLB.com.
His immense talent and college commitment to Nebraska are good signs that his signability could be an issue.
Michael Wagner, RHP, San Diego
Teams looking for a pitcher who is likely to sign and make it to the majors in some capacity (which should be every team) would love to pick up Wagner in the later rounds.
He spent his sophomore season as the closer for San Diego and notched 19 saves with a 5-2 record and an ERA of 2.58.
Though he transitioned to a starting role this season, he could very well wind up in the bullpen at the major league level. His stuff isn't overpowering, but he's the kind of consistent pitcher who teams should be happy to add in the late rounds.
Tony Rizzotti, RHP, Tulane
Rizzotti is a high-risk pick with a ton of potential. He has bounced around from TCU to Grayson College and now to Tulane while dealing with injuries to his back and knees, but his stuff caused Keith Law (ESPN Insider required) to label him a "third to fifth rounder."
The injury risk is something that obviously caused his plummeting stock, but the later rounds should give teams the confidence to take more risks.
Adding a reliever who can hit 96 on the gun as a sophomore in college isn't a bad pickup on Day 3. Rizzotti has eventual MLB closer written all over him.
