Updated 2012 MLB Draft Order (January 27th)

Updated MLB draft order for 2012 to this point; just 3 Type B Free Agent picks left to be determined. A few notes:

  • Carlos Beltran and Takashi Saito both had clauses in their contracts that they could not be offered arbitration.
  • Roy Oswalt was not offered arbitration.
  • The Red Sox will not get a compensation pick for the loss of Dan Wheeler, since he signed a minor league deal with the Indians (why did the Twins not sign him, again?)
  • David Ortiz, Francisco Rodriguez, and Kelly Johnson all accepted arbitration.
  • The top 15 picks in the draft are protected picks under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Previous reports had the top 10 picks being protected under the new CBA, but according to both MLBTradeRumors and Keith Law, Ryan Madson's signing makes it clear that's the case, becau
  • There was a pool of Modified Type A Free Agents that do not require signing teams to relinquish their respective First Round Picks. For this pool of players, the compensated team receives the pick immediately preceding the traditional draft slot of the signing team.
  • Picks TBD (for remaining unsigned "compensation" Free Agents) are denoted with ****

From a Twins' standpoint, they they will now have the 32nd overall pick as compensation for Michael Cuddyer's departure and #42 as compensation for Jason Kubel's departure. Assuming the above holds (ie all of the remaining compensation Free Agents find new homes) the Twins' picks will be:

#2, #32, #42, #63, #72, and #96 overall.

I will keep this up to date as we move along. There are only 3 remaining "compensation" Free Agents left unsigned.
