A high profile first round pick did not sign this year. I understand the issue. He didn't want his MRI done, the team that drafted him didn't like what they saw on their MRI. I have to imagine there is a better way to go about this so that the player isn't handcuffed to a team that doesn't want him.
I understand the club didn't like what they saw on their MRI, but why draft a guy who refused the MLBs predraft MRI? Isn't that the risk they take when they draft somebody in that position?
Should the MLB require all pertinent medical info and imaging to be done in order to be eligible for a draft slot? Hoping someone who knows more about the draft can shed some light on how this happens. Club loses a pick. Player loses out on millions. Hoping somebody can help me make sense of this.
