Competitive Balance Draft Lottery 2015 |

For half of Major League Baseball’s 30 clubs, Wednesday’s Competitive Balance Lottery will provide a shot at a valuable extra selection in the 2016 Draft.

The Lottery, which was first held in 2013 after being created under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, gives the teams with the 10 smallest markets or 10 smallest revenue pools chances at one of 12 extra Draft picks. The picks are divided into Rounds A and B, with six falling after the first round and six after second round of the MLB Draft.

Twelve teams are eligible to win a pick in Round A this year: the D-backs, Rockies, Reds, Marlins, Padres, Rays, Brewers, Indians, A’s, Pirates, Royals and Cardinals.
