  1. Indians lost 2nd and 3rd round picks, not 1st and 2nd. Their 1st rounder was protected.

  2. I believe you made an error – the Tigers wouldn’t pick at #39. Your wrote that they are a competitive balance round “B” team.

  3. The Marlins and Tigers swapped competitive balance picks in the Anibal Sanchez trade last year.

  4. Actually the Indians lost the 2nd round pick and their Competitive Balance Round B pick.

  5. Why do the Mets (76) and Phillies (96) get extra third-round picks?

  6. Two unsigned players from last year. All picks in the top three rounds are protected, if the player doesn’t sign. The Mets failed to sign Teddy Stankiewicz with pick 75 last year, so they get pick 76 this year. The Phillies failed to sign Alec Rash with pick 95, so they get pick 96 this year.

  7. Both teams didn’t sign 3rd round picks from last year.

  8. Thanks for writing this up Wendy! There was a lot of confusion last year. It’s nice to have this in layman’s terms when a question comes up.
