Major League Baseball's 2020 amateur draft wrapped up on Thursday. The spread of the novel coronavirus required the draft to be held virtually instead of in Omaha, Nebraska alongside the College World Series. The owners' desire to slash costs, meanwhile, led to the draft being shortened from 40 rounds to five.
With the 25th overall pick, the Atlanta Braves selected Jared Shuster, a lefty out of Wake Forest. He was part of a four-pick Braves class that earned a C grade from our experts:
The Braves had only four picks all draft. They started well, taking Wake Forest left-hander Jared Shuster in the first round. Shuster saw his stock improve as much as any pitcher over the last year, and now features a power fastball and above-average changeup. Their other notable pick was Michigan outfielder Jesse Franklin, who did not play this season due to a broken collarbone.
