The crop of left-handed prospects has been struck by incredibly poor luck this season, as the top two southpaws have been struck by injuries: Brady Aiken with Tommy John surgery, and Kolby Allard with a back injury.
Their absence has allowed a few others to step into the void and garner consideration as top-ten picks, however, and it’s becoming increasingly evident that Illinois reliever Tyler Jay will be the first lefty selected.
These rankings are current as of 6/6/15, and will be updated throughout the draft season.
