MLB Draft Order 2017: Where All 30 Teams Will Pick In First Two Rounds

1,019

It’s time to put the present on hold and take a peek toward the future.

The 2017 Major League Baseball draft kicks off Monday night in Secaucus, N.J., where a whopping 40 rounds will be spread out over a three-day span. Monday will feature the cream of the crop, though, as 75 selections will be made between the first and second rounds and the two Competitive Balance Rounds, which award picks to small-market teams using a formula based on winning percentage and revenue.

The Minnesota Twins, who finished with MLB’s worst record in 2016, will pick first. marking the fifth time in eight years they’ll select sixth overall or higher. Teams also receive compensation picks for losing free agents, meaning the Toronto Blue Jays, Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs all will select players twice in the first round.

The St. Louis Cardinals, meanwhile, forfeited two of their picks to the Houston Astros — Nos. 56 and 75 overall — as punishment for their role in a 2013 hacking scandal.
