1057topper Orioles Win Lottery For Draft Picks

NEW YORK (AP) — The Rockies, Orioles, Indians, Marlins, Royals and Brewers won picks after the first round of next year’s draft in Major League Baseball’s second annual competitive balance lottery.

The lottery involved the 10 teams with the lowest revenue and 10 in the smallest markets and was six picks after the first round. A club’s odds of winning the lottery were based on its winning percentage last season.

The teams that did not win a pick after the first round were entered into another lottery for picks after the second round.

The Padres, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, Rays, Pirates and Mariners won second-round picks.

The competitive balance draft was agreed upon as part of the labor agreement that went into effect in 2012.
