Podcast: Guardians, Reds land Draft Lottery shockers

December 6th, 2023

The latest Pipeline Podcast comes on the heels of the second annual Draft Lottery, and Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Jason Ratliff break down the results.

In a stunning turn of events, the Guardians moved up from the ninth slot to No. 1 and the Reds jumped from 13th to No. 2. Jonathan sat down with Paul Gillispie, Cleveland's vice president of scouting, to discuss the ramifications of the first No. 1 overall choice in franchise history.

There's also talk about the game's top two prospects -- Orioles middle infielder Jackson Holliday and Brewers outfielder Jackson Chourio -- making news, a pair of trades that have happened at the Winter Meetings and a listener mailbag question about how the top three picks in the 2024 Draft could play out.

On the MLB Pipeline Podcast, Mayo and Callis are your tour guides through all the unfolding stories and breaking news of baseball's top prospects. Each week, you'll find out about the stars of tomorrow from the guys who know today.
