2023 MLB Mock Draft: Predicting the First 75 Picks Following MLB Draft Lottery

The MLB Draft Lottery took place for the first time in league history last night. The draft order is now figured out through a system that combines records, postseason finish, and revenue-sharing status.

The Pirates were given the first overall selection of the 2023 MLB Draft.

With the new changes to an order, we've put together a 2023 mock draft of the first 75 picks. Follow along below!

2023 MLB First 75 Picks Mock Draft

1. Pirates: Dylan Crews, OF, LSU

The Pirates need to start competing soon. They'll look at Dylan Crews, who projects to be a five-tool player with massive power and a great glove in right field.

2. Nationals: Chase Dollander, RHP, Tennessee

Dollander could've easily been the first selection for the Pirates. He's a left-handed pitcher with a solid mix of pitches in his bag.

Washington has a history of bringing in the top college pitcher in the first round and will ultimately get another top-of-the-rotation guy for their rebuild.

3. Tigers: Jacob Gonzalez, SS, Ole Miss

The reality is teams want to start competing faster. The whole rebuild process usually takes too long and rarely works out. The teams who buy are the teams that are generally in the playoffs.

Teams like the Tigers, Nationals, and Pirates don't want to wait. They will want to go after college-level athletes who can move up the farm system quickly and onto their roster.

Gonzalez can make contact at ease at the plate, and although he's just an average fielder, he's got plenty of room to grow.

4. Rangers: Walker Jenkins, OF, South Brunswick HS (Oak Island, NC)

On the other hand, teams like the Rangers, who spend a lot, won't have a problem bringing in high-school talent.

The Rangers will have their selection of Walker Jenkins or Max Clark. They can't go wrong with either selection, but if Jenkins stays healthy, I believe he might have a little more upside.

5. Twins: Wyatt Langford, OF, Florida

The Twins love their power bats. Every year, they're one of the top teams in the home run department.

Langford has extremely raw power from the right side and the legitimate speed to make him a real threat at bat, in the outfield, and on the base paths.

6. Athletics: Max Clark, OF, Franklin Community HS (Franklin, IN.)

7. Reds: Jacob Wilson, SS, Grand Canyon

8: Royals: Enrique Bradfield, OF, Vanderbilt

9. Rockies: Kevin McGonigle, SS, Monsignor Bonner HS (Aldan, PA)

10. Marlins: Noble Meyer, RHP, Jesuit HS (Portland, OR)

The Marlins selected a big bat with their first selection last year. But it sounds like the Marlins are ready to unload most of their starters in trades this season. They'll need to start adding more pitching depth to their farm.

11. Angels: Hurston Waldrep, RHP, Southern Miss

12. Diamondbacks: Aidan Miller, 3B, JW Mitchell HS (FL)

13. Cubs: Arjun Nimmala, SS, Strawberry Crest HS (FL)

14. Red Sox: Rhett Lowder, RHP, Wake Forest

15. White Sox: Paul Skenes, RHP, LSU

16. Giants: Travis Honeyman, OF, Boston College

17: Orioles: Thomas White, LHP, Phillips Academy (Rawley, MA)

18. Brewers: Maui Ahuna, SS, Tennessee

19. Rays: Colt Emerson, SS, John Glenn

20. Blue Jays: Roch Cholowsky, SS, Hamilton HS

Cholowsky has a solid glove but is also one of the better contact hitters in this draft class. If he falls to 20, the Blue Jays must pick him up.

21. Cardinals: Tommy Troy, IF/OF, Stanford

22. Mariners: Jack Hurley, OF, Virginia Tech

23. Guardians: Cade Kuehler, RHP, Campbell

24. Braves: Ross Dunn, LHP, Arizona State
