2010 Draft Order – Updated Thru August 17

EDIT: Jim Callis says that the comp picks are reliant on overall number picked, not technical number, so the Rangers do get 14(a) instead of 13(a), and the Rays get 30(a). Draft order is updated to represent this, so I guess MLB interprets their rule differently than the letter of the law.

Now that the unsigned first-round picks are in, here’s the raw 2010 draft order as it stands through Monday. The plus and minus signs indicate changes in the order since my last update. This does not include any forthcoming changes due to free agent signings this coming offseason. The compensation picks are bolded, and their number is set in stone.

1. Washington Nationals (43-75)
2. Kansas City Royals (46-72)
3. Pittsburgh Pirates (47-70)
4. Baltimore Orioles (48-70)

6. Cincinnati Reds (50-67)

9. Arizona Diamondbacks (54-65)
10. New York Mets (55-63)
