Florida Memorial University baseball players Nathan Harris and Jalen Young have been named Potential HBCU MLB Draft Prospects List for 2023 according to Black College Nines. Young, an outfielder, hails from Atlanta, Ga. while Harris, an infielder, comes from Orlando, Fla.

We’re just six months away from the 2023 MLB draft, which will take place July 9 through July 11 during All-Star festivities in Seattle, Washington.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have the No. 1 pick, followed by the Washington Nationals, Detroit Tigers, Texas Rangers and Minnesota Twins. There are more clear-cut choices for picks from HBCUs this year with Coppin State Jordan Hamberg, Junior (LHP/OF), expected by many to come off the board first. The draft will consist of 20 rounds this year, just as it was last year; half the length of the 40-round edition last held in 2019.
