The Cleveland Guardians, with 2% odds coming into the MLB Draft Lottery, have landed the #1 draft pick:

Jeff Ellis and Justin Lada from LockedOn Guardians (and Next Year in Cleveland) are live talking about the potential pick as I post this:

MLB put out this mock draft for 2024 in the summer and this one today, Kiley McDaniel did one for ESPN, and ProspectsLive did one here.
