The MLB Draft might be the most player friendly. A prospect can get drafted and still play in college. However, there is a catch. Once a player starts college baseball, he cannot return to the MLB Draft until the end of his junior year. BC commitment Dante Baldelli is dealing with that right now.
The Phillies drafted Baldelli. Depsite his commitment to BC, Baldelli could still be gone. If he agrees to a deal before school starts, he's a Phillie. If he waits, he's an Eagle for three seasons.
This whole scenario is tough on the coaches. They need elite talent, but cannot have too many empty roster spots or unused scholarships. Good luck to Baldelli and to BC Baseball's coaching staff.
