2014 MLB Draft: Competitive balance lottery results

Stephen Dunn

The Rockies were the biggest winners from the Competitive Balance Draft Lottery.

The Colorado Rockies won the Competitive Balance Draft Lottery and will pick first in Competitive Balance Round A of the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft. The Baltimore Orioles, Cleveland Indians, Miami Marlins, Kansas City Royals and Milwaukee Brewers also won picks in the round.

The Competitive Balance Draft is designed to give teams in small markets, or who have minimal revenue, additional high draft picks. The 10 clubs with the lower revenue and 10 clubs from the smallest market are entered into a lottery to receive one of six picks in Comp Round A, which comes right after the first round. After that, all the teams that did not get picks in Round A, as well as all teams that are payees under the league Revenue Sharing Plan, are entered into a lottery for six more picks, this time in Round B, which comes after the second round.

The San Diego Padres will lead Round B, followed by the Arizona Diamondbacks, St. Louis Cardinals, Tampa Bay Rays, Pittsburgh Pirates and Seattle Mariners.

These draft picks are eligible to be traded. Detroit and Florida swapped their Round A and Round B picks for the 2013 draft.

The lottery was conducted on Wednesday at the MLB offices in New York.
