MLB Draft 2021 guide: Start times, Live Stream

For the first time in 2021, the MLB Draft will be part of the All-Star events.
MLB moved its annual selecting-the-future-stars event from its traditional slot of early June to mid-July, with the hopes that adding it to the sport’s premier mid-season showcase will put a bigger spotlight on the event. It’s an event worthy of more eyeballs. The Draft’s first round has been aired live on MLB Network since 2012 — you’ll remember a kid named Mike Trout was the only potential first-round pick to show up in the studio for that one — and this year ESPN joins the broadcast.

Here’s what you need to know about the event. More details will be added — such as the list of representatives for each team — as they become available.
