The Prospect Development Pipeline (PDP) is a Major League Baseball – USA Baseball joint initiative. The voluntary program established the official identification and assessment pathway to elite amateur baseball players to all 30 MLB Clubs for the amateur draft.



Athletes participating in the PDP receive access to state-of-the-art technology for their unique baseball and athletic assessments, along with the most comprehensive evaluative experience of any sport, including professional sports’ combines.


The PDP supports single day, regional activations at no participation cost to attending athletes. During a PDP athletic assessment and evaluation, participants voluntarily take part in:

  • Performance Vision Screen
  • State-of-the-art Athletic Assessment
  • Offensive-Defensive Baseball Evaluation
  • On-field Gameplay


All PDP participating athletes receive a fully-customized, post-event Player Report, containing:

  • Data and metrics from the evaluation
  • Training tools for improvement and development
  • USA Baseball Sport Development amateur resources


The PDP actively supports partner activations, including:

  • Cape Cod Baseball League
  • Coastal Plains League
  • East Coast Pro
  • MLB Baseball and Softball Development
  • USA Baseball
