Current MLB Rule 4 Draft Order

Updated MLB draft order for 2012 to this point; a few Type A/Type B Free Agent picks left to be determined.

Carlos Beltran had a clause in his contract that he could not be offered arbitration, and Roy Oswalt was not offered arbitration, so both of those Type A's are gone as well. Ditto for David Ortiz, Francisco Rodriguez, and Kelly Johnson, all of which accepted arbitration. I will modify this as we go along throughout the offseason:

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

Modified Type A picks left to be awarded based on signing team (ditto): Ryan Madson, Michael Cuddyer, Josh Willingham

One last note; I have included the new revenue-sharing lottery picks under the new CBA, which will be instituted this year. There will be a lottery among the 10 lowest revenue clubs and the 10 smallest market clubs for 6 picks immediately following the 1st rd (before the Type A/Type B supplemental picks) and 6 picks immediately following the 2nd rd. We just have no idea what this looks like yet or which teams are eligible/will win, so for now, I'm leaving that alone.
