Seattle passed on Rice 3B Anthony Rendon and took LHP Danny Hultzen from Virginia with the second pick. Arizona went with RHP Trevor Bauer at number three. Baltimore selected the first high schooler in RHP Dylan Bundy from Owassa, Oklahoma. The first position player was taken by Kansas City, who went with the hometown kid in OF Bubba Starling from Gardner Edgerton High School in Kansas at number five. Rendon slipped to Washington at number six.
