2016 Major League Debuts And Their Signing Scouts



Each player who makes his major league debut this season had a scout recommend him to his signing organization. To give credit where credit is due, we’ll track those scouts and scouting directors, where applicable, for each player to make the big leagues for the first time in 2016. Players are sorted in alphabetical order by debut date. Included with each listing is signing organization, year signed and draft round in parentheses, where applicable. Source indicates the high school, junior college, college or country from which each player signed. The BA Executive Database supplies the names of scouting directors. Players listed with an asterisk (*) were major league Rule 5 draft selections last December. We also have MLB debuts archives for 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011.
