2011 MLB Draft: Start Time, Coverage And Order For Tuesday's Rounds

The 2011 MLB Draft kicks into overdrive on Tuesday after a drawn-out affair on Monday. The coverage was at a snail's pace throughout the first and sandwich rounds on Monday as analysts took their time breaking down the picks and filling air-time to milk as much coverage as possible. While it took hours to get two rounds of the Draft done on Monday, the picks will come flying in on Tuesday, with the second through 30th rounds set to take place over the course of the day. Monday is about flash while the rest of the draft is about building organization depth and, hopefully, finding that diamond in the rough.

The Mariners had a quiet day on Monday, picking only once. But Seattle had a large amount of responsibility and plenty of options with the second pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, and chose to use it on left-handed pitcher Danny Hultzen, a junior from the University of Virginia. It came as a surprise as many expected the Mariners to take Anthony Rendon or any of the other top position players available, but Jack Zduriencik and his scouting crew loved what they saw in Hultzen and pulled the trigger.

The Mariners will pick early on Tuesday, once again holding the second pick of the day. Here's the vital information for Tuesday's festivities.

Start time: It's an earlier start on Tuesday as teams have a boatload of picks to make and work to get done. Coverage begins at 9 a.m. on the West Coast with the beginning of the third round.

Coverage: Once again, MLB Network will have full coverage of the 2011 MLB Draft. The picks will be coming fast and Tuesday is less about painstaking analysis and more about getting the picks out in the open and going back to review some of the highlights. In addition to the television broadcast, MLB.com will also have a live-stream and draft tracker, for those stuck at work.
