Traditional Type A picks left to be awarded based on signing team (won't know draft position until then); Prince Fielder

Modified Type A picks left to be awarded based on signing team (ditto): Ryan Madson

From a Twins' standpoint, they they will now have either the 32nd or 33rd overall pick as compensation for Michael Cuddyer's departure (depending on where Ryan Madson signs) and they will have picks as high as #40 as compensation for Jason Kubel and #64 for the 2nd compensation pick for Cuddyer. The lowest their other 2 picks can be at this point are #43 and #74.

I will keep this up to date as we move along. There are only 8 remaining "compensation" Free Agents left unsigned.
