Competitive Balance Lottery Results: Pirates Get Extra Draft Pick

The rules of MLB's first Competitive Balance Lottery were labyrinthine, but all's right with the world, as the Pirates have ended up with one of the picks following the first round and compensation round.

Since we don't yet know about the number of compensation selections, we don't know exactly where the Pirates' pick will be, but even if it's as low at No. 40, that's still a pretty nice addition to the Pirates' draft. The Bucs will also get two first-round selections, their regular pick and also the No. 9 overall pick, which they got for failing to sign Mark Appel. The Bucs can also trade the lottery pick (but not either of the other picks) during the regular season, if they so choose.
