No professional sports draft involves more depth and uncertainty than the MLB draft, and that is a big part of what makes it so attractive to baseball fans.

With both collegiate and high school players available to be selected, strategy and speculation definitely play big roles. There are rarely surefire, bust-proof stars for the taking, as the MLB draft doesn't seem to have the best success rate in terms of first-round hits.

Even so, baseball fans love catching a glimpse of Major League Baseball's potential future stars, and they will have an opportunity to do that once again this year. Here is all the information you need to know about the 2014 MLB draft, including the draft order for all 40 rounds.

Prospects to Watch

Tyler Beede

The 2014 season has been a fairly inconsistent one for Vanderbilt starting pitcher Tyler Beede, which makes him one of the most enigmatic prospects in this draft. He could potentially go as high as No. 4 to the Chicago Cubs due to his immense ceiling, but he could just as easily fall outside the top 10.

He was lights out in 2013 as he went 14-1 with a 2.32 ERA, but his ERA has ballooned to 3.42 this year. His strikeout rate has improved slightly; however, there is no question that he has regressed. With that said, he seems to be hitting his stride at the right time, according to John Manuel of Baseball America:

It should be noted that Beede pitches in the SEC, which is arguably the toughest conference in college baseball, but it is tough to blame teams for possibly being reluctant to take him. He has all the tools you look for in a pitcher, though, and perhaps coaches will be able to help him bring it all together at the next level.


Carlos Rodon

North Carolina State lefty Carlos Rodon has seemingly been the leader in the clubhouse for top-pick honors since last season. Although his 2014 campaign hasn't been perfect, he has fought through adversity and posted excellent numbers once again.

His 6-7 record doesn't tell the entire story, as his 2.01 ERA and 10.67 strikeouts per nine innings suggest that he has been dominant for large portions of the season. Rodon has improved in almost every area statistically aside from his record, which is something that is largely out of his hands anyway.

There were a lot of eyes on one of his recent starts, and Aaron Fitt of Baseball America reports that there is a belief he solidified his status as the top prospect in this draft:

The Houston Astros are a very likely destination for Rodon at No. 1, but there is very little chance that he slips past the Miami Marlins or Chicago White Sox at worst.


Jeff Hoffman

There is never a good time for a pitcher to suffer an arm injury, but the timing couldn't have been much worse for East Carolina righty Jeff Hoffman. According to ESPN's Keith Law, Hoffman was recently faced with the unfortunate reality of undergoing Tommy John surgery:

He had been enjoying a strong season and put himself in position to be selected in the top five or top 10 at the very least. Those aspirations are almost certainly over, but it isn't outside the realm of possibility that he could still be a first-rounder.

According to Jonathan Mayo of, an anonymous MLB executive still views Hoffman as a first-round prospect:

I think (Hoffman) is talented enough that he still will get selected in the first round. I don't know where that's going to be. Because of what he showed in the Cape, pushing (Carlos) Rodon for who would be No. 1, then that one outing when he was showing top-of-the-draft type of stuff. Teams will have to scramble now, having more discussions with their medical staff, to see where that risk factor lies.

MLB draft picks are a work in progress anyway, so taking a player who will miss a year isn't necessarily the worst thing in the world. As long as there is confidence that he can recover and return to form, Hoffman should still come off the board fairly early.
