On Tuesday, Major League Baseball announced changes to the draft structure -- again.
It will still be a three-day event, starting Monday, June 7 in the evening. But unlike last year, the first day will consist only of the first round and initial compensation round; that's a total of 50 selections as opposed to 111 first-day picks a year ago.
