2020 competitive balance picks announced

Recommended Posts

Qualifying offer decisions from this offseason will shake up the draft order to some extent. White Sox slugger Jose Abreu and Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi accepted those offers, but the eight others who received them rejected. Each of those calls will have an impact on the 2020 draft order.

We could conceivably pick 2 and 22? Unlikely but possible?

The order and current pick numbers of Competitive Balance Rounds A and B are below. Pick numbers are subject to change based on trades (Competitive Balance Round picks can be traded) and qualifying offer free-agent signings. Click here for the complete Draft order, including updates due to free-agent signings.

Round A

1- Baltimore Orioles
2- Pittsburgh Pirates
3- Kansas City Royals
4- Arizona Diamondbacks
5- San Diego Padres
6- Colorado Rockies
7- Cleveland Indians
8- St. Louis Cardinals

Round B

1) Miami Marlins
2) Detroit Tigers
3) Tampa Bay Rays
4) Milwaukee Brewers
5) Cincinnati Reds
6) Minnesota Twins

There are still changes that will come to the Draft order, starting with what happens with qualifying-offer free-agent signing deals. Those deals will have some impact on the Draft beyond the top picks. Two free agents, José Abreu of the White Sox and the Twins’ Jake Odorizzi, accepted their teams’ qualifying offer this year. That brings the total of acceptances to eight of the 90 players who have received a qualifying offer.

Here are the eight free agents who declined a qualifying offer this year and the Draft compensation their 2019 teams stand to receive if the players sign elsewhere. The Giants have already been awarded what is currently pick No. 75 for losing free agent Will Smith to the Braves. For signing Smith, the Braves will forfeit their second-highest pick, which was currently at pick No. 63 in the second round. When the Phillies’ deal for Zack Wheeler is official, they would lose their second-round pick (No. 53), moving the start of the Competitive Balance Round B up to pick No. 67, and the Mets would receive a compensation pick after the Giants:

Astros -- Gerrit Cole: pick after Competitive Balance Round B
Braves -- Josh Donaldson: pick after Competitive Balance Round B
Cardinals -- Marcell Ozuna: pick after Competitive Balance Round B
Giants -- Madison Bumgarner, Will Smith: picks after Competitive Balance Round B
Mets -- Zack Wheeler: pick after Competitive Balance Round B
Nationals -- Anthony Rendon, Stephen Strasburg: picks after Competitive Balance Round B

Nice to see us win something. 

So the Cole and Strasburg are awarded B picks that come after round 2? 

I can't imagine anyone getting a A pick for a player moving forward unless I have something wrong.
