The first part of the draft is tonight! Coverage begins on MLB Network and MLB.com at 6 p.m. with a preview show, and the draft itself gets underway at 7 p.m., also on MLB Network and MLB.com. MLB.com's Draft Central is a pretty good place to follow the draft, and FanGraphs will be live blogging the draft as well.
The Orioles will only make one pick tonight, #4 overall. I'll be updating this page through the first round so please stick around the chat about your opinions on the player picked by the Orioles and other teams. As a primer, read the following by our personal draft blogger, James F:
