With the MLB draft set to begin on June 4, teams are hoping to find the next superstar for their squad that can be a cornerstone for the next decade or so. The top five picks in order belong to the Detroit Tigers, San Francisco Giants, Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox, and Cincinnati Reds. Here are the best players selected at each draft position (one through 10) throughout the MLB June draft history (since 1965). As a subjective list, many of these can be debated.
