The O's will be picking 2nd in Round 1. 
We'll also be receiving a Competitive Balance Round A pick, which should be in the early to mid 30's overall.
As well, our 2nd Round selection should be in the early to mid 40's overall. So, almost certainly three of the top 50 prospects. Sweet.

I'll update the specific slots as they are determined. 

I say take all bats with the top picks. Grow the bats. Buy the arms.

With the qualifying offer deadline passed, we now know that there will be no picks between the end of the first round and the beginning of Competitive Balance Round A.

The only way there could have been compensation picks between the end of Round 1 and the compensation round is if (a) the team that made the qualifying offer is a revenue sharing recipient AND (b) the player in question declined the offer and signed for more than $50 million. The only revenue sharing recipient team to extend a qualifying offer this year was the Twins to Jake Odorizzi, and he accepted.

The 8 players that received qualifying offers and declined them were all on teams that are not revenue sharing recipients, and thus their compensation picks (assuming the player is signed prior to the draft) will be after Competitive Balance Round B (between rounds 2 and 3).


2 of the post competitive balance picks have signed.  Since the new team forfeits the 2nd pick and old team gets comp pick, we should be locked into 2, 31, 40, 76, 106, 136...right?

And just for my own knowledge.  Competitive balance picks can be traded, however comp picks cannot, correct?

With the 31st pick and Detroit CompB being 68, will we likely have the highest draft budget?  Any sites that project these things?
