Lottery Pays Off For Ohio



The latest Pipeline Podcast comes on the heels of the second annual Draft Lottery, and Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo and Jason Ratliff break down the results. In a stunning turn of events, the Guardians moved up from the No. 9 pick to No. 1 and the Reds jumped from No. 13 to No. 2. Jonathan sat down with Paul Gillispie, Cleveland's vice president of scouting, to discuss the ramifications of the first No. 1 overall choice in franchise history. There's also talk about the game's top two prospects (Orioles middle infielder Jackson Holliday, Brewers outfielder Jackson Chourio) making news, a pair of trades that have happened at the Winter Meetings and a listener mailbag question about how the top three picks in the 2024 Draft could play out.
