The 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft begins on June 6 and runs through June 8.  Teams are busy finalizing their draft boards, which includes a lot of discussions with scouts who have spent numerous hours watching high school and college baseball players perform with the hope that they will some day make it onto an MLB 25-man roster.  Many of those players have hired advisors to help them with their interactions and to assist them with the upcoming draft and negotiation of their first professional contracts.
