2011 MLB Draft Schedule, TV Coverage, Online Stream, And Draft Order

The 2011 MLB Draft is scheduled to start on Monday, June 6 at 7:00 p.m. ET / 4:00 p.m. PT with Round 1 of the First-Year Player Draft. This year's draft is widely considered one of the better and deeper crops of talent in the last few years. TV coverage of the first round of the draft will be provided by the MLB Network on cable and satellite television and live online streaming will be available on MLB.com who has a fantastic Draft Central page set up.

Rounds 2-30 of the MLB First-Year Player Draft starts at 12:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 a.m. PT on Tuesday, June 7 and Rounds 31-50 at the same time on Wednesday, June 8. There does not appear to be any TV coverage of Rounds 2-50.

There's several pitchers slated at the top of most mock drafts that could help teams in the coming years and a couple of position players as well. UCLA RHP Gerrit Cole is at the top of several draft boards but by no means is a consensus first pick. Other top arms include Dylan Bundy and Danny Hultzen Infielder Anthony Rendon and outfielder Bubba Starling are the top position players.

SB Nation Arizona will provide timely coverage of every pick in the top ten and will be on-hand for any media availability with the Diamondbacks front office. The Diamondbacks have both the third and seventh overall picks and will operating their draft war room out of their new Spring Training facility at Salt River Fields.

AZ Snake Pit has a primer to the MLB Draft that explains everything from the process to Diamondback team needs. They will have additional draft information such as history of top picks and other useful information in the coming days.
