Grading Every MLB Team's Draft Performance over the Past Decade
David Goldman/Associated Press

The MLB draft is a crapshoot.

It's the place where top picks frequently turn into monumental busts and 21st-round selections become lockdown closers. However, teams like the Atlanta Braves, San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals have transformed the draft process into a science. 

What follows are grades for all 30 MLB teams regarding their draft performance over the past decade.

The grading criteria is two-fold. First, there is a major emphasis on how teams have done in the opening round. The grades take a look at each team's most successful first-rounder over the past 10 years as well as how many of its top selections have made it, briefly or not, to the major leagues.

Second, the grades take into consideration how teams have done in Rounds 2-50. For each team, there is a rundown of how many draft picks are currently on the roster and how much production (in terms of WAR) they have been provided.
