2018 MLB Draft Order/Results:

 Detroit Tigers (1st Overall): Casey Mize, Pitcher, Auburn Tigers

 San Francisco Giants (2nd Overall): Joey Bart, Catcher, Georgia Tech

(Author Thoughts: The San Francisco Giants decided to go catcher here and it is a sign that Joey Bart will become the successor of Buster Posey in the future.)

 Philadelphia Phillies (3rd Overall): Alec Bohm, Third Baseman, Witchita State

 Chicago White Sox (4th Overall): Nick Madrigal, Shortstop, Oregon State

 Cincinnati Reds (5th Overall): Jonathan India, Third Baseman, Florida

 San Diego Padres (7th Overall): Ryan Weathers, Pitcher, Loretto HS

 Atlanta Braves (8th Overall): Carter Stewart, Pitcher, Eau Gallie HS

 Oakland Athletics (9th Overall): Kyler Murray, Outfielder, Oklahoma

(Author Thoughts: The star quarterback from Oklahoma gets selected in the top 10. The decision still lingers if the two-sport athlete will commit to a football career or a baseball career.)

 Pittsburgh Pirates (36th Overall): Gunnar Hoglund, Pitcher, Fivay HS

 Baltimore Orioles (37th Overall): Cadyn Grenier, Shortstop, Oregon State

 San Diego Padres (38th Overall): Xavier Edwards, Shortstop, North Broward Prep

(365SN Thoughts: The Padres add another stud shortstop to their farm system with Xavier Edwards. A speedy and solid contact hitter, Edwards could be an essential point in the future for the Padres.) 

 Arizona Diamondbacks (39th Overall): Jake McCarthy, Outfielder, Virginia

 Kansas City Royals (40th Overall): Kris Bubic, Pitcher, Stanford

 Cleveland Indians (41st Overall): Lenny Torres, Pitcher, Beacon HS

 Colorado Rockies (42nd Overall): Grant Lavigne, First Baseman, Bedford HS

 St. Louis Cardinals (43rd Overall): Griffin Roberts, Pitcher, Wake Forest 


Other Notable Draft Selections:

 Detroit Tigers (44th Overall): Parker Meadows, Outfielder, Grayson HS

 Detroit Tigers (79th Overall): Kody Clemens, Second Baseman, Texas

(365SN Thoughts: Kody Clemens, son of Roger Clemens, is the third Clemens boy to be drafted in professional baseball as older brother Koby was drafted by Houston in the 8th round in 2005 and Kody last year by Toronto. Cody is a solid hitter as he is hitting .346 this year while leading Texas to the Austin Super Regional.) 

 Cincinnati Reds (82nd Overall): Bren Spillane, Outfielder, Illinois

365SN Thoughts: We originally had Bren Spillane as a mid-second round draft pick but was stolen here by the Reds in the third round.)
