It’s not often a Major League Baseball scout will share insights on draft prospects just a month before the draft, but Detroit Tigers Northeast scouting supervisor Jim Bretz did just that on the most recent New England Baseball Journal Podcast.
In a must-listen for anyone interested in the 2021 MLB Draft, Bretz talked about what could be a historic draft for New England prospects with as many as 10 players expected to earn selections in the first three rounds.
“There’s a large emphasis on New England this year,” Bretz said. “If you talk to all of the bosses from all of the clubs, the consensus seems to be that the Northeast has the best arsenal of players in the country. That’s coming from the top for all clubs.”
