2015 Draft Order

The new Collective Bargaining Agreement has changed the draft pick compensation rules dramatically. Type-A and B free agents are gone, ditto the arbitration system. Everything now comes down to qualifying offers, which are valued at $15.3M this offseason.

I’ll update this page as teams gain and lose draft picks this winter via free agent compensation, with updates made after the team announces the signing via press release. An in-depth breakdown of all the draft compensation rules can be found right here. Protected and Yankees picks are in bold. If you have any questions, you can email me at mike (at) riveraveblues (dot) com.
