The 2020 MLB Draft is almost certainly to be held June 10 and be done virtually. What remains to be decided by commissioner Rob Manfred is whether the process will be five rounds or 10, according to multiple sources.
The draft was originally set to be held June 10-12 and for the first time ever was to take place in Omaha, Neb., in conjunction with the College World Series. But because of the coronavirus pandemic, MLB and the Players Association reached agreement on March 26 to give Manfred the right to decide when to hold the draft up to July 20 and to reduce the process from as many as 40 rounds to five.
The plan now is to return the draft to its original start date of June 10 with the potential to add a day if it is deemed necessary.
