AL West: Team targets for '13 draft
The needs, desires and impulses of every team in advance of the 2013 draft
MLB Draft Prospect: Colin Moran
The 2013 draft is almost upon us, and we thought it would be a good time to take a step back and look at what each organization needs.
While you've surely heard that MLB teams typically don't draft for need in the first round, they will adjust their strategies based on the strengths and weaknesses of the system, as well as what is available.
With that in mind, we've highlighted the strength and weakness of each organization, including Keith Law's top 10 prospects for each. We've also provided a breakdown of the type of player each club tends to favor in the draft. For example, the Phillies have long been known to prefer athletic high school prospects, while the Mariners have favored college players in recent years. For the purposes of this exercise, we are focusing on the first round, supplemental first round and competitive balance Round A.
Really, this is the only MLB draft primer you will need.
