The 2020 MLB Draft has been shortened from 40 to five rounds, setting up the smallest influx of amateur talent into the sport in nearly six decades.

The Dodgers had six total selections — one in each of the five rounds, and one pick in between the second and third rounds that was acquired from the Twins in February, part of Competitive Balance Round B.

Los Angeles picked four pitchers and two position players, beginning with Louisville right-hander Bobby Miller in the first round.

Their total draft pool, the sum of the recommended slot bonus values, is $5,928,400, including $2,424,600 for their first-round selection, 29th overall. Unlike in previous years, later bonuses are hard capped, at $20,000 for undrafted free agents. That means the Dodgers, and every other team, can only spread their bonus pool among their draft picks within the five rounds.

The deadline to sign drafted players this year was moved from July 10 to August 1, to allow more time to coordinate and complete physical exams. But the Dodgers signed all six picks before that original deadline. Here are the details:
