While Day 1 of the Major League Baseball draft took place Thursday night and carried through the end of the Competitive Balance Round after Round 2, Day 2 began in the early afternoon Friday and came to a close after Round 10.
Since most of the best amateurs are selected on Day 1, Rounds 3 through 10 are about picking more signable players (i.e., college seniors) so teams can stay within their allotted bonus pools. That doesn't mean, though, that clubs can't find and take college and high school talent with some upside as potential mid-round steals.
Here's a look at a batch of the biggest steals from Day 2—amateurs who went much later in the draft than projected based solely on their talent—listed in draft order from latest to earliest. For the purposes of this piece, only players picked in Round 5 or later could qualify as steals.
