Compensation Picks

If a team that loses a qualifying free agent is a revenue-sharing recipient, then the team — if and only if the lost player signs for at least $50 million — is awarded a compensatory pick between the first round and Competitive Balance Round A. If the player signs for less than $50 million, the compensation pick for the team comes after Competitive Balance Round B.

 The Rays gained two picks here due to Alex Cobb signing with the Baltimore Orioles and not signing Drew Rasmussen (draft pick).

 Next, the Royals acquired these two extra picks as they saw Eric Hosmer and Lorenzo Cain find new homes this past off-season. Hosmer signed with the Padres and Cain went to Milwaukee.

 Lastly, the Indians let Carlos Santana hit the open market and they could not retain him as he signed with the Phillies.

 

31. Tampa Bay Rays – Joe Gray Jr. – OF – Hattiesburg HS (Mississippi)

32. Tampa Bay Rays – Cole Wilcox – RHP – Heritage HS (Georgia)

33. Kansas City Royals – Tristan Beck – RHP – Stanford

34. Kansas City Royals – Jeremy Eierman – SS – Missouri State

35. Cleveland Indians – Triston Casas – 1B – American Heritage School (Florida)

Competitive Balance Round A

All teams that have either one of the 10 smallest markets or 10 smallest revenue pools receive an additional pick at the end of the first or second round. In 2017, six picks were assigned between the first and second rounds based on a formula that considers winning percentage and revenue. The remaining eight eligible teams received a supplemental selection between the second and third rounds. In 2018, the groups of teams switch places, meaning there will be eight Comp Round A picks and six in Round B.

Competitive Balance picks may be traded and are not subject to forfeiture.
