OAKLAND -- Greg Cadaret, a prominent member of the bullpen that guided the A's to a pennant-winning 1988 season, will represent the club when it makes the 10th overall pick at the First-Year Player Draft next month.
Drafted by the A's in the 11th round of the 1983 Draft, Cadaret played the first two and a half seasons of his 10-year career with Oakland, where he provided an effective left-handed relief option before being traded away in June 1989 along with two other players to the Yankees in exchange for Rickey Henderson.
MLB.com will offer live coverage and analysis of the entire First-Year Player Draft on June 7-9 on MLB.com/Live. The first round and Compensation Round A will be broadcast live from MLB Network's Studio 42 in Secaucus, N.J., on MLB.com and MLB Network on Monday, June 7, beginning with the Draft preview show at 6 p.m. ET.
MLB.com Draft expert Jonathan Mayo will join Greg Amsinger, Harold Reynolds, John Hart, Peter Gammons and Baseball America executive editor Jim Callis on Monday's broadcast.
Coverage for Rounds 2-50 will shift exclusively to MLB.com/Live, where Rounds 2-30 will be streamed on Tuesday, beginning at noon, and Rounds 31-50 will be streamed on Wednesday, starting at noon. Host Pete McCarthy will be joined by Mayo and former general manager Jim Duquette.
Cadaret, 48, will be among the many baseball luminaries present in Secaucus, as each team has tabbed at least one significant player from its past to sit at its Draft table.
