2016 MLB Draft Results

The first-year player draft, also known as the Rule 4 draft, is Major League Baseball’s way of assigning players from high school, college and other amateur clubs to professional teams. The draft order is determined based on the standings from the previous season, with the team possessing the worst record receiving the first pick. If two teams finish with the same record, the previous year’s standings will be the tiebreaker. Teams who lost a free agent who received a qualifying offer will be awarded a compensation pick.
