Quick Draft Order Tracker UpdateBy
Just a quick heads up, I have added all of the Type-A and B free agents that were offered arbitration (with Elias scores) to our 2011 Draft Order Tracker. It’s also been updated to reflect the now finalized Victor Martinez, Joaquin Benoit, and John Buck signings as well. There’s a total of 14 Type-A’s and 21 Type-B’s, so the supplemental first round could theoretically be 35 picks long. That won’t happen though, some guys will re-sign with their old club, some will accept arbitration, some might should retire (coughTrevorHoffmancough).
I did the math, and the absolute worst that the Javy Vazquez compensation pick can be is 57th overall. More than likely, it’ll be right around 50 somewhere, which isn’t bad at all. That pick is protected, so the Yankees keep it no matter how many free agents they sign.
