The 2016 MLB Draft is just days away and June 6, 2016 marked the 10th anniversary of when the Los Angeles Dodgers drafted pitcher Clayton Kershaw.
Kershaw has been dominant this season and was even named the NL pitcher of the month for the month of May. Dodgers senior advisor Ned Colletti joins MLB on TuneIn to discuss the decision to draft Kershaw over other stars like Max Scherzer.
“It was a great team effort between our scouts and having a few things fall in favor of us,” said Colletti.
In the interview he also reflected on how the Dodgers were able to land Kershaw. The Dodgers selected Kershaw with the No. 7th overall pick in the 2006 MLB Draft.
