The ScoreEvery MLB team's best and worst pick of last decade

With the 2024 MLB Draft rapidly approaching, it's a good time to take a look back at some of the best and worst picks by each team over the past 10 years.Arizona Diamondbacks Duane Burleson / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Corbin Carroll, 2019 (16th)Despite his rough 2024, getting a talent like Carroll with the 16th pick in 2019 is still a huge coup for the Diamondbacks. The dynamic Carroll won NL Rookie of the Year in 2023 and still has MVP potential at 23 years old.Worst: Dansby Swanson, 2015 (1st) Arizona traded Swanson less than a year after drafting him first overall in a deal for Shelby Miller that ended up being a huge setback for the franchise. The D-Backs selected Swanson over players like Alex Bregman, Kyle Tucker, Andrew Benintendi, and Ian Happ.Atlanta Braves Kevin C. Cox / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Spencer Strider, 2020 (126th) Landing Strider in the fourth round is one of the best value selections in some time. The right-hander led the league with 20 wins and 283 strikeouts in 2023. His future is still extremely bright even though he suffered a season-ending elbow injury this year.Worst: Braden Shewmake, 2019 (21st) The Braves traded Shewmake to the White Sox as part of a package for left-handed reliever Aaron Bummer ahead of the 2024 campaign. Shewmake never appeared in a game for the Braves and was drafted ahead of players like Anthony Volpe and Michael Busch.Baltimore Orioles Jess Rapfogel / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson, 2019 (1st, 42nd)The fate of the Orioles changed forever in June 2019. Baltimore drafted catcher Adley Rutschman first overall and shortstop Gunnar Henderson to start the second round, securing two franchise pillars and future stars who are now leading one of baseball's best teams. Cedric Mullins, a 13th-round pick in 2015, also deserves a mention.Worst: Cody Sedlock, 2016 (27th)The Orioles took Sedlock in the first round. The right-hander made one appearance before he was traded to the Detroit Tigers for cash considerations in July 2022.Boston Red Sox Joe Nicholson / USA TODAY SportsBest: Andrew Benintendi, 2015 (7th)Benintendi developed into a fan favorite during his time in Boston, helping the Red Sox win the World Series in 2018. He finished runner-up in AL Rookie of the Year voting in 2017 and posted a .789 OPS across five seasons with the Red Sox.Worst: Jason Groome, 2016 (12th) Groome struggled through injuries during his time in the Red Sox system. The right-hander was eventually moved to the San Diego Padres in the Eric Hosmer trade in 2022. Groome has yet to make a big-league appearance and has a career ERA well over five in the minors.Chicago White Sox Brace Hemmelgarn / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Garrett Crochet, 2020 (11th)Crochet made an immediate impact the same year he was drafted in the first round, striking out a pair in a postseason appearance against Oakland. The talented left-hander enjoyed success as a reliever but has reached another level in 2024 after the White Sox moved him to the rotation. He looks like a bonafide ace for years to come; unfortunately, it looks increasingly unlikely that his future is with the team that drafted him.Worst: Nick Madrigal, 2018 (4th)Madrigal was traded to the Cubs for Craig Kimbrel in 2021. He was drafted one pick ahead of 2021 NL Rookie of the Year Jonathan India. Madrigal was expected to be a quality offensive player but has mustered an 87 career wRC+ so far.Chicago Cubs Jamie Sabau / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Ian Happ, 2015 (9th)Happ's been a popular player and a versatile one as well, providing value at the plate and in the field. The 29-year-old has been an above-average hitter (117 wRC+) throughout his career and has the look of a lifelong Cub.Worst: Ryan Jensen, 2019 (27th) The Mariners claimed Jensen off waivers in 2023 after he accumulated a 2 7 record and a 5.77 ERA with 66 strikeouts in 53 innings across two minor-league levels that season. He has yet to make his MLB debut.Cincinnati Reds Dylan Buell / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Jonathan India, 2018 (5th) India hasn't quite been able to replicate his Rookie of the Year campaign, but he's still become a solid player who can hit for a bit of power and steal bases while playing competent defense.Worst: Nick Senzel, 2016 (2nd)Senzel struggled to stay healthy in five seasons with the Reds and hit 40 home runs with a .671 OPS across 433 games.Cleveland Guardians Brian Fluharty / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Shane Bieber, 2016 (122nd) Bieber won a Cy Young in 2020 and is a two-time All-Star. Not too shabby for a fourth-round pick.Worst: Bradley Zimmer, 2014 (21st) Zimmer showed flashes of the tools that made him a first-round pick, but he never put it all together in Cleveland.Colorado Rockies Matthew Stockman / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Kyle Freeland, 2014 (8th)Despite pitching half his games at Coors Field, Freeland has a career ERA around 4.50 - a pretty strong mark considering the left-hander's home environment.Worst: Riley Pint, 2016 (4th)Pint was a fourth overall pick and was retired from June 2021 until the start of the 2022 campaign. He owns a 27.00 ERA for the Rockies and hasn't fared particularly well in the minors either.Detroit Tigers Katelyn Mulcahy / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Riley Greene, 2019 (5th)Greene is on pace to set new career highs in almost every major offensive category in 2024 and made his first All-Star team. The talented outfielder is a building block in Detroit.Worst: Casey Mize, 2018 (1st)Mize has dealt with injuries, and his stuff just isn't as sharp anymore. The former first overall pick has been hit hard in 2024 and his strikeout rate has plummeted too.Houston Astros Logan Riely / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Alex Bregman and Kyle Tucker, 2015 (2nd, 5th)Bregman and Tucker both became integral members of a Houston core that's won a pair of World Series titles and made seven consecutive ALCS appearances.Worst: Forrest Whitley, 2016 (17th)Injuries robbed Whitley of the opportunity to make much of an impact at the big-league level. The right-hander made his MLB debut in 2024 as a reliever but went back on the IL with an elbow issue.Kansas City Royals Gregory Shamus / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Bobby Witt Jr., 2019 (2nd)Witt is a cornerstone in Kansas City and signed the biggest contract in franchise history. He could be mentioned among the all-time great Royals when his career is over.Worst: Asa Lacy, 2020 (4th)Lacy is still in the Royals organization but is out for the season following Tommy John surgery. The 25-year-old owns a 7.09 ERA in the minors and hasn't thrown a pitch since the 2022 season.Los Angeles Angels Ronald Martinez / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Taylor Ward, 2015 (26th)Ward has developed into a quality hitter after an inconsistent start to his career. He posted a better-than-league-average wRC+ in each of the last four seasons.Worst: Will Wilson, 2019 (15th)Wilson was traded to the Giants alongside Zack Cozart in 2019, the same year he was drafted for cash considerations and a player to be named later.Los Angeles Dodgers Icon Sportswire / Icon Sportswire / GettyBest: Will Smith, 2016 (32nd)Smith's become one of baseball's best catchers and a World Series champion, and he was rewarded with a 10-year, $140-million contract extension in March.Worst: Jeren Kendall, 2017 (23rd)Kendall retired in 2022 after posting a .693 OPS in 1,400 minor-league at-bats. He never made a big-league appearance.Miami Marlins Michael Reaves / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Braxton Garrett, 2016 (7th)Although he's dealt with injuries throughout his career, Garrett's been productive when healthy. He owns a 4.03 ERA, 3.84 FIP, and 8.83 K/9 in 326 1/3 innings.Worst: Connor Scott, 2018 (13th)Scott was dealt to the Pirates in 2021 as part of a package for catcher Jacob Stallings. The 24-year-old hit .161 this season at Double-A before the Pirates released him in June.Milwaukee Brewers Norm Hall / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Corbin Burnes, 2016 (111th)Burnes won a Cy Young and developed into a premier starting pitcher after the Brewers selected him in the fourth round.Worst: Corey Ray, 2016 (5th)Ray had two at-bats for the Brewers in 2021 and retired at the end of 2022 after dealing with a number of injuries. He's now managing the Chicago Cubs' rookie-level affiliate. Minnesota Twins Brace Hemmelgarn / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Royce Lewis, 2017 (1st)Injuries are the only thing stopping Lewis from becoming one of baseball's biggest stars. He showed his immense potential down the stretch of the 2023 campaign, and it carried over as he hit four home runs in six postseason contests.Worst: Tyler Jay, 2015 (6th)Jay made his MLB debut for the Mets this season out of the bullpen. The Twins sent him to the Reds for cash considerations in June 2019. New York Mets Brandon Sloter / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Pete Alonso, 2016 (64th)Alonso won Rookie of the Year in 2019, is a three-time All-Star, and has hit at least 40 home runs three times. That's quite the return on investment for a second-round pick.Worst: Justin Dunn, 2016 (19th)Dunn was traded to Seattle as part of the package that brought back Edwin D az and Robinson Can in 2018. He was then shipped to Cincinnati in the Jesse Winker/Eugenio Su rez deal in 2022.New York Yankees Sarah Stier / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Anthony Volpe, 2019 (30th)Volpe has endured some offensive inconsistency but is an excellent defender at shortstop and has already amassed at least 2.0 fWAR in his first two MLB seasons.Worst: Blake Rutherford, 2016 (18th)The Yankees traded Rutherford to the White Sox in 2017 as part of a deal that brought David Robertson, Tommy Kahnle, and Todd Frazier to New York. Rutherford made his MLB debut with the Nationals in 2023 and is currently playing in the Mexican League.Oakland Athletics G Fiume / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Matt Chapman, 2014 (25th)Chapman developed into the game's premier defensive third baseman during his five-year stint in Oakland, winning three Gold Gloves and a pair of Platinum Gloves.Worst: Kyler Murray, 2018 (9th)The A's took a risk by selecting Murray in the first round and hoping he might pick baseball over football. Murray ended up as the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and signed a $230.5-million extension with the Arizona Cardinals in 2022.Philadelphia Phillies Mary DeCicco / Major League Baseball / GettyBest: Aaron Nola, 2014 (7th)Nola has been everything the Phillies could have hoped for as the seventh overall pick. The right-hander will likely spend his entire career in Philadelphia and should be among the franchise's all-time leaders in a number of pitching categories when it's all said and done.Worst: Adam Haseley, 2017 (8th)Hasely hit .264 with a .695 OPS over parts of three seasons with the Phillies before he was dealt to the White Sox in 2022. Pittsburgh Pirates Justin K. Aller / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Jared Jones, 2020 (44th)Paul Skenes deserves a nod as well, but Jones has taken the league by storm in his rookie campaign. The second-round pick's fastball/slider combination evokes comparisons to Spencer Strider - pretty impressive company.Worst: Travis Swaggerty, 2018 (10th)Swaggerty had one hit in nine at-bats for the Pirates in a five-game stint during the 2022 campaign. Pittsburgh designated Swaggerty for assignment later that season and he's currently playing for the Kansas City Monarchs of the American Association of Professional Baseball. San Diego Padres Chung Sung-Jun / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Jackson Merrill, 2021 (27th)Merrill's hit his stride in his first season and looks like a strong candidate to win NL Rookie of the Year.Worst: Hudson Potts, 2016 (24th)Potts was traded to the Red Sox in 2020 for first baseman Mitch Moreland. Currently a free agent, Potts owns a career .716 OPS with 90 home runs in 2,436 minor-league at-bats.San Francisco Giants Thearon W. Henderson / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Patrick Bailey, 2020 (13th)The Giants have been searching for a successor to Buster Posey and could have their man in Bailey. He's one of MLB's best defensive catchers and is making legitimate strides offensively this season.Worst: Joey Bart, 2018 (2nd)Bart was the Giants' first potential Posey replacement. However, the former second overall pick hit just .219 across parts of four seasons in San Francisco before he was designated for assignment in April.Seattle Mariners Sam Hodde / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Logan Gilbert, 2018 (14th)Gilbert narrowly edges out George Kirby. The right-hander has been a steady and consistent performer for the Mariners since making his debut in 2021. Worst: Evan White, 2017 (17th)The Mariners signed White to a six-year contract before he appeared in a game. The first baseman failed to live up to the deal, hitting .165 in 84 games before he was traded in December 2023. He's currently in the Los Angeles Angels organization.St. Louis Cardinals Mitchell Leff / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Alec Burleson, 2020 (70th)Burleson's enjoying the best year of his career in 2024 and has already set career highs in home runs and RBIs. Worst: Delvin P rez, 2016 (23rd)P rez is currently a free agent and owns a .642 OPS in 1,722 minor-league at-bats. Tampa Bay Rays Steph Chambers / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Shane McClanahan, 2018 (31st)McClanahan blossomed into one of baseball's best starting pitchers, making a pair of All-Star Games in his first three MLB seasons. He has a career 3.02 ERA in 74 starts with a strong 10.1 K/9.Worst: Brendan McKay, 2017 (4th)McKay tried his hand at becoming a two-way player but injuries derailed any momentum. He's still in the Rays organization, attempting to return from a myriad of injuries.Texas Rangers Julio Aguilar / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Josh Jung, 2019 (8th)Jung made the All-Star Game and helped the Rangers win the 2023 World Series while hitting 23 home runs in his rookie season. Worst: Bubba Thompson, 2017 (26th)Thompson has bounced around, spending time with the Royals and Reds after Texas designated him for assignment in August 2023. Toronto Blue Jays Tim Nwachukwu / Getty Images Sport / GettyBest: Bo Bichette, 2016 (66th)Bichette led the American League in hits in consecutive seasons and has made a pair of All-Star Game appearances. He could eventually sit atop a number of franchise offensive categories if he remains with the Blue Jays beyond next season, when his contract is set to expire.Worst: T.J. Zeuch, 2016 (21st)The Blue Jays took Zeuch in the first round over pitchers like Cole Ragans, Dane Dunning, and Nick Lodolo, all of whom went on to have productive MLB careers. Zeuch made seven starts for the Blue Jays, posting a 4.59 ERA with 5.7 K/9.Washington Nationals Icon Sportswire / Icon Sportswire / GettyBest: Mitchell Parker, 2020 (153rd)Parker, a fifth-round pick in 2020, made his MLB debut this season and has become a key contributor to the rotation. The left-hander posted a strong 3.44 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP in his first 16 MLB starts.Worst: Jackson Rutledge, 2019 (17th)Rutledge is pitching at Triple-A and has struggled to the tune of a 6.86 ERA in five MLB appearances (four starts) across the last two seasons.Copyright © 2024 Score Media Ventures Inc.

The Score2014 MLB redraft: Astros land Trea Turner

With the 2024 MLB Draft beginning Sunday, theScore looks back a decade and redrafts the first round from the 2014 event.1. Houston Astros Tim Nwachukwu / Getty Images Sport / GettyActual pick: Brady Aiken, LHPOur pick: Trea Turner, SSThe Astros already had an elite shortstop in 2014 after selecting Carlos Correa two years prior. Picking Turner, who has amassed 39.5 fWAR throughout his career, would have given Houston one of the top infields in baseball, with Correa likely shifting to third base and Jose Altuve manning second. That trio would have been a nightmare for opposing clubs to face and likely would have caused the Astros to pass on Alex Bregman in the 2015 draft.2. Miami MarlinsActual pick: Tyler Kolek, RHPOur pick: Aaron Nola, RHPIt's possible Nola, who's won 100 games and thrown more than 1,500 innings for the Phillies, could have pitched for someone else in the NL East. Instead, the Marlins used the second overall pick on Texas high schooler Kolek, who never pitched in the majors and was out of baseball by 2019. Nola was scooped up by the Phillies five picks later.3. Chicago White Sox Actual pick: Carlos Rod n, LHPOur pick: Logan Webb, RHPRod n has had a nice career, finishing top-six in Cy Young voting twice and throwing a no-hitter, but Webb is the superior pitcher. The 27-year-old has established himself as one of baseball's top hurlers over the past four seasons, amassing the third-most innings pitched, fifth-most fWAR, and third-lowest FIP among qualified starters.4. Chicago CubsActual pick: Kyle Schwarber, COur pick: Kyle Schwarber, CWe have to agree with the Cubs' pick at four. Schwarber hit 121 homers and posted an .816 OPS for Chicago while playing a big role in its 2016 World Series win. He's since become a fixture in Philadelphia, with consecutive seasons of 46-plus homers in 2022 and 2023.5. Minnesota Twins Thearon W. Henderson / Getty Images Sport / GettyActual pick: Nick Gordon, SSOur pick: Matt Chapman, 3BSince 2014, the Twins' top performer at third base has been Eduardo Escobar, who amassed 9.2 fWAR at the hot corner during his Minnesota tenure. Things could have been a lot different in the Land of 10,000 Lakes had the Twins selected Chapman, a four-time Gold Glove and two-time Platinum Glove winner, instead of Gordon, who hasn't lived up to expectations and is currently on the Marlins.6. Seattle MarinersActual pick: Alex Jackson, OFOur pick: Dylan Cease, RHPCease, a high schooler, didn't come into his own until 2021, meaning the Mariners could have had another stud arm in their already impressive rotation. Instead, they selected Jackson, an outfielder-turned-catcher who owns a .406 OPS in 99 career games.7. Philadelphia Phillies Actual pick: Aaron Nola, RHPOur pick: Carlos Rod n, LHPWith Nola off the board, the Phillies could have grabbed Rod n, who would have been the best starting option available at this point in the draft had he not already been picked. 8. Colorado RockiesActual pick: Kyle Freeland, LHPOur pick: Michael Conforto, OFConforto had a solid career with the Mets before moving to the Giants, but who knows what kind of numbers he would have put up playing most of his games at Coors Field, where he's posted a career .330/.415/.510 slash line with nine extra-base hits and 13 RBIs in 28 games.9. Toronto Blue JaysActual pick: Jeff Hoffman, RHPOur pick: Brandon Woodruff, RHPHoffman never blossomed into a top-of-the-rotation starter like the Blue Jays hoped, although he did just make the All-Star team as a reliever. They could have had Woodruff, owner of two All-Star appearances and a career 3.10 ERA, here instead.10. New York Mets Norm Hall / Getty Images Sport / GettyActual pick: Michael Conforto, OFOur pick: Jordan Montgomery, LHPMontgomery started his career in New York but could have pitched in Queens instead of the Bronx. The southpaw could have provided the Mets with a dependable innings-eater from the left side. New York's best left-handed starters since 2014 have been Steven Matz, David Peterson, and Jonathon Niese.11. Toronto Blue JaysActual pick: Max Pentecost, COur pick: Jack Flaherty, RHPThe Blue Jays missed by selecting Pentecost, who never played in the majors and hasn't suited up since 2018. Flaherty, meanwhile, has had some dominant campaigns when healthy, including this season's career-high 11.6 K/9 and career-low 3.06 FIP.12. Milwaukee BrewersActual pick: Kodi Medeiros, LHPOur pick: Justin Steele, LHPSteele has blossomed into a Cy Young contender, finishing fifth for the NL version of the award last season. Medeiros has never appeared in the majors, owning a 4.91 ERA in 179 minor-league games.13. San Diego PadresActual pick: Trea Turner, SSOur pick: Rhys Hoskins, 1BWith Turner off the board, the Padres could have landed a slugging first baseman in Hoskins, who has 161 career round-trippers and 448 RBIs.14. San Francisco GiantsActual pick: Tyler Beede, RHPOur pick: Jordan Romano, RHPBeede hasn't amounted to much and continues to bounce around organizations, while Romano turned himself into one of the game's best closers with 105 career saves and 11.2 career K/9.15. Los Angeles Angels Luke Hales / Getty Images Sport / GettyActual pick: Sean Newcomb, LHPOur pick: Alex Verdugo, OFNewcomb didn't pitch a game for the Angels, who traded him to the Braves in a 2015 deal for Andrelton Simmons. Verdugo, who was also part of a big swap involving Mookie Betts, has proven to be a reliable big-league outfielder thanks to a .757 career OPS.16. Arizona DiamondbacksActual pick: Touki Toussaint, RHPOur pick: Mitch Keller, RHPToussaint, like the aforementioned Newcomb, never pitched a game for the team that drafted him. Arizona flipped him to the Braves in 2015. The D-Backs could have had Keller, a one-time All-Star, who's been pretty good in his age-26-28 seasons.17. Kansas City RoyalsActual pick: Brandon Finnegan, LHPOur pick: Lane Thomas, OFThomas has become a 20-20-caliber player who could have manned the outfield for the Royals and potentially fast-tracked their rebuild following the 2015 World Series win. Finnegan, who appeared in the 2014 World Series months after getting drafted, hasn't pitched in the majors since 2018 and currently plays independent ball.18. Washington NationalsActual pick: Erick Fedde, RHPOur pick: Kyle Freeland, LHPFreeland was one of the top arms available in 2014, but he hasn't panned out aside from his stellar 2018 campaign. Perhaps pitching away from Coors Field would have helped his career. One also wonders if the Nationals sign fellow lefty Patrick Corbin in 2018 if Freeland is on the roster.19. Cincinnati RedsActual pick: Nick Howard, RHPOur pick: J.D. Davis, 3BDavis had some nice years for the Mets and Giants and owns a career .768 OPS. Howard never pitched above Triple-A and is currently in High-A for the Braves organization.20. Tampa Bay Rays Sarah Stier / Getty Images Sport / GettyActual pick: Casey Gillaspie, 1BOur pick: Luke Weaver, RHPWeaver has turned into a solid bullpen piece for the Yankees after an inconsistent career as a starter for multiple organizations. Gillaspie is one of those rare draft picks the Rays got wrong. The 31-year-old hit 60 minor-league homers, spent three years in independent ball, and no longer plays. 21. Cleveland GuardiansActual pick: Bradley Zimmer, OFOur pick: Jose Trevino, 3BThe Guardians could have employed one of the top defensive catchers in the game in Trevino, who owns a career 67.5 FanGraphs defensive rating. Instead, they chose Zimmer, who's strong defensively in his own right but has been used more as a bench piece throughout his career.22. Los Angeles DodgersActual pick: Grant Holmes, RHPOur pick: Ryan Yarbrough, LHPHolmes recently surfaced in the big leagues with the Braves after spending 10 years in the minors. Meanwhile, Yarbrough has pitched meaningful innings for contenders like the Rays and Dodgers.23. Detroit TigersActual pick: Derek Hill, OFOur pick: Erick Fedde, RHPHill has appeared in 121 big-league games with the Tigers and Rangers but is more of a glove-first type with a career 73 OPS+. Fedde has transformed into a solid big-league starter after turning around his career in Korea.24. Pittsburgh PiratesActual pick: Cole Tucker, SSOur pick: Tanner Scott, LHPTucker hasn't amounted to much in the bigs and was recently outrighted to the minor leagues by the Angels, his fourth organization. Scott is a hot commodity ahead of his season's trade deadline thanks to a 1.42 ERA as the Marlins closer.25. Oakland Athletics Ryan Pierse / Getty Images Sport / GettyActual pick: Matt Chapman, 3BOur pick: Jeff Hoffman, RHPWith Chapman off the board, the A's could have taken Hoffman. He's become a top reliever in the Phillies' bullpen over the past two seasons.26. Boston Red SoxActual pick: Michael Chavis, SSOur pick: Ryan O'Hearn, 1BO'Hearn has become an effective run producer and slugger late in his career. Chavis posted a .704 OPS in 168 games for the Red Sox and is now playing in the minor leagues.27. St. Louis CardinalsActual pick: Luke Weaver, RHPOur pick: Spencer Turnbull, RHPTurnbull threw a no-hitter for the Tigers in 2021 and has been terrific for the Phillies this season. He would have been a solid pick for the Cardinals with Weaver off the board.Copyright © 2024 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved. Certain content reproduced under license.
