The 2021 MLB Draft order is officially set, and the San Francisco Giants will have the No. 14 selection. It had been reported that the league was going to use the 2020 standings to determine the draft order, as they do in normal years, and that is now official.
The Giants went 29-31, which was tied for 14th in baseball. They lost the tiebreaker to the Milwaukee Brewers, which meant the Giants missed out on the postseason, but get to draft one slot ahead of Milwaukee.
San Francisco most recently had the No. 14 pick in 2014, when they selected right-handed pitcher Tyler Beede. Before that, they had only drafted from that slot once before: In the inaugural draft of 1965, when they took third baseman Al Gallagher.
