Monday night, all 30 baseball teams will look to acquire their next franchise cornerstone when the 2017 First-Year Player Draft begins. It's a three-day even that covers 40 rounds. Here are all the first round details. The Minnesota Twins hold the first overall pick for the third time in franchise history. They used their previous No. 1 selections on Tim Belcher (1983) and Joe Mauer (2001). As it stands, the Twins are still deciding who to take with that top pick Monday night, though they are reportedly down to two players. In our mock draft, we projected the Twins to take Vanderbilt RHP Kyle Wright. That was before Wright allowed seven runs on eight hits in 6 2/3 innings in his Super Regionals start over the weekend. While one game is never enough to completely change a team's opinion, clubs will surely take Wright's weekend performance into consideration before the draft. The Twins are basing their No. 1 pick decision on money as much as talent.
