MLB Bonus Baby League Draft - First 15

The MLB Bonus Baby Dynasty League has kicked off its inaugural draft, and I thought I'd give an update on how it's going. The players eligible for the draft are all 2009 draftees and international signees, plus any player that is a future draft-eligible player. International players that either haven't signed yet or will be signing a Major League contract are not eligible. Therefore, there's no Aroldis Chapman. I declared Wagner Mateo eligible, simply because he already did sign a contract, and he'll be signing a definite one within a matter of days or weeks. Pushing him back to next year eligibility is not the right thing to do.

Knowing those rules, here's how the first 15 picks have come out, with their current team and draft year at the end:

1. San Francisco Giants (via Washington Nationals) - Stephen Strasburg, RHP, Washington Nationals (2009)
2. Tampa Bay Rays (via Pittsburgh Pirates) - Bryce Harper, C, CC of Southern Nevada (2010)
3. Baltimore Orioles - Dustin Ackley, OF, Seattle Mariners (2009)
4. Kansas City Royals - Gerrit Cole, RHP, UCLA (2011)
5. Cleveland Indians - Aaron Crow, RHP, Kansas City Royals (2009)
6. Arizona Diamondbacks - Jameson Taillon, RHP, The Woodlands HS (TX) (2010)
7. New York Mets - Anthony Ranaudo, RHP, LSU (2010)
8. Houston Astros - Donavan Tate, OF, San Diego Padres (2009)
9. San Diego Padres - Matt Hobgood, RHP, Baltimore Orioles (2009)
10. Oakland Athletics - Anthony Rendon, 3B, Rice (2011)
11. Toronto Blue Jays - Tyler Matzek, LHP, Colorado Rockies (2009)
12. Cincinnati Reds - Jacob Turner, RHP, Detroit Tigers (2009)
13. Chicago White Sox - Christian Colon, SS, Cal State Fullerton (2010)
14. Milwaukee Brewers - Zack Wheeler, RHP, San Francisco Giants (2009)
15. Florida Marlins (via Chicago Cubs) - Tanner Scheppers, RHP, Texas Rangers (2009)
