When is the 2015 Competitive Draft lottery?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know when the 2015 Competitive Draft Lottery is held? I can't seem to find when it is although the past lotteries seem to have been held in the third week of July. The O's could definitely use that pick as a trade chip like last year.

Does anyone know what our chances would be of winning a pick? I know it's based on the previous year's record right?

Last year it was held the day after the All-Star Game, I assume it will be the same this year. It is not solely based on the previous year's record. The eligible teams are the 10 teams with the lowest revenue and the 10 teams with the smallest market. There is overlap among these groups. Last year there were 14 teams eligible and 12 of them received picks. The determination of where in the lottery a team picks is odds based, tied to winning percentage from last season. Hence the A's and Rays missed out in 2013 (The O's beat the odds in getting a good pick in 2013 despite their great 2012 record).

So like a guy in the bullpen?

Guy's in the bullpen have faces. They just pitch too little in real action for their future performance to be reliable. Their success is usually due to so tic or idiosyncrasy that throws the timing of the competition off. For a slice of time. And then it is gone. So their faces change and age prematurely.

Per this website I found searching about the draft, it states it will be on Monday:

"The Rule 4 Draft Competitive Balance Lottery (CBL) is held on the Monday following the Rule 4 Draft signing deadline in July. Only MLB clubs that receive revenue sharing and clubs from the ten smallest markets are eligible to participate in the lottery for the CBL draft slots."

    • I hope Elias and Adley have as much success together as Belichick and Brady before in the long run of time baseball probably creates some data what happens with one but not the other. I do really enjoy Elias having grown up with OPACY before the Nats, and hope he'll be around for the long haul.   I think chances are at least decent there, but I do also think Mike Elias vs. the field might be an interesting prop bet if Hal Steinbrenner ever lets go of huckleberry Brian Cashman. From Sig interviews, I'm pretty sure he'll stick with Elias as long as he is able. I guess POBO Eve Rosenbaum here could be fun if succession ever became necessary.
    • And, the Opening Poster was clearly rushed to this message board, had a huge swing and a miss, and needs to be sent down to reset.
    • Lost in the cut play was that HJ got no help from Holliday who hesitated as if he had to cover the bag (he's not a 2b yet).   HJ made a poor throw but Holliday has to be in the correct position for the cut-not running and expecting the RF to pick him up.  Palmer thought they had a play at second but with Holliday hesitating and not lined up he would have to catch the ball then set and then throw against his momentum which isn't easy.  Not excusing the poor throw but the execution of the throw is a lot easier if the first cut in lined up correctly and not still moving.  
    • Grayson command (at least to me) is unusually poor for an elite starter.  He often gets away with it because his stuff is so darn nasty.  Even last night, Grayson got 14 swing and misses. all that being said, I do wonder if Grayson was tipping his pitches again (it was speculated in 1H23).  Because the Angels got such high EVs on a variety of different pitch types, and not just sitting on one specific pitch. 
    • That's what, second on the team?  😉
    • I like how you credit Elias and Company for developing Grayson but forget that Hall showed little progress under their development. I don't see how you can look at what they have accomplished with hitters and think, hey, let's also try and give them credit for a pitcher that Dan's team selected. Is what they've accomplished with hitters not enough to warrant a thread praising them? The post would be a lot stronger without trying to shoehorn in the pitcher.
    • 5 turns along Grayson sits 5th in 4-seam fastball velo among SP, lagging... Hunter Greene, 2019 TJ Jared Jones, a survivor like him, so far doing exciting things Jordan HIcks, 2019 TJ Dylan Cease, 2014 TJ Grayson got to 3000 game pitches in 2023; Jared Jones' 2022-2023 looks like 2050 and 2067 pitches according to Fangraphs.
