MLB Draft 2011: Who Will The Nationals Take With Two First Round Picks?

The 2011 MLB Draft is steadily approaching. It will take place on June 6 at 7 pm. You can watch the first round live on MLB Network, and streaming through MLB.com.

The Nationals won't have the first overall pick in this draft like they have the past two years, but they'll still have a pretty good opportunity to add one, if not two, impact players in the first round. They hold the sixth overall pick based on their own record, and also the 23rd overall pick because of Adam Dunn signing with the Chicago White Sox.

There aren't any Stephen Strasburg's or Bryce Harper's in this draft, so I guess it's fine that the Nationals don't have the top pick. But are still some interesting prospects, most notably UCLA's Gerrit Cole, Rice's Anthony Rendon, Montverde Academy's Fransisco Lindor, Texas' Taylor Jungmann and Gardner-Edgerton's Bubba Starling.

We'll be covering the MLB Draft live in this stream, but for more on the Nationals check out Federal Baseball.
