2016 Frontier League Draft Results

The two-day Frontier League tryout has finished, and the draft is now complete.  30 players were selected in this year’s draft. Pitching and catching once again dominated the draft results.  Only seven other position players (three outfielders, two 3B, and two 2B) were selected – all late in the draft.

With the first selection in the draft, the Normal Cornbelters selected LHP Billy Waltrip. Waltrip, who was drafted in 2013 by the Colorado Rockies, made it as high as low A Tri-City with the Rockies organization in 2014.

As we did last year, this site will be covering the entire draft class throughout the Frontier League season.
