For those that support losing for draft position, congratulations. 

Tied with Oakland at 75-87...A's should get the tie breaker (2016 record)

 

First round picks are protected from compensation, so this used to be sort of the worst spot (top 10 protected), but not so much now.

 

Other draft pick consideration is the Orioles are switching into the "A" Competitive Balance Round in 2018 and should have the 3rd pick (behind SD, PIT), in front of (STL, KC, COL, AZ and CLE)....so likely pick #33 (I think there's a condition where they could be #32)

 

If the Orioles sign a compensated FA, I believe they lose their 3rd highest pick, which would be the 11th pick in the 2nd round.

I am not sure congratulations is the word, but they certainly earned the higher draft performance with some seriously bad play.

 

 

I thought, they might be in the top 10, but I  think the 2016 records come into play when two or more teams tie for a draft spot.

Ryan Rolison, LHSP, Mississippi....?

 

With the draft order set and BA already producing their Top50 HS and College players....John Manual went ahead and published a BA Mock Draft for 2018.

 

Odd that he's calling out not-new-compensation rules. (says Orioles pick is first 'unprotected' pick)

Throw a dart at the board right now.

 

Meaningless to try and project that at this stage.  So much will change between now and then.
