July 29, 2013

 

Daily Draft Position (seeking the FA Exception)

 

1) Astros (.337)

2) Marlins (.388) -5.5

3) WSox (.392) -6.0

4) Brewers (.413) -8.5

5) Twins (.441) -11.0

6) Giants (.442) -11.0

7) Mets (.451) -11.0

8) Padres (.453) -12.0

9) Blue Jays (.461) -13.0

 

10) Cubs (.466) -12.5

10) Angels (.466) -12.5

12) Phillies (.467) -12.5

 

13) Mariners (.476) -13.5

14) Rockies (.481) -14.0

15) Nationals (.491) -15.0

16) Royals (.500) -17.0

 

9th is positioned because of winning percentage and not games behind Houston, note the 9th position is the final protected position for signing a top free agent without losing that year's draft position.

 

From Wiki

 

 

Current rules

For the 2012 draft, the previous "Type A" and "Type B" designations remained in place, but the CBA included special provisions that modified the statuses of 11 players who were Type A free agents under the 2007 CBA. Six of these were "Modified Type A"—meaning that the signing team did not forfeit a draft pick, but the player's former team received a compensatory pick in the same position it would have earned under regular Type A rules. The remaining five were "Modified Type B", with compensation identical to that for other Type B free agents.

 

Starting with the 2013 draft, free agents are no longer classified by "type". Instead, a team is only able to receive compensation if it makes its former player an offer at least equal to the average of the 125 richest contracts.However, if a player is traded during the final season of his contract, his new team will be ineligible to receive any compensation.

 

 

 

From MLBTR
 

 

Teams must forfeit a draft pick to sign a free agent who declined a  qualifying offer from his former club. If a team's first round pick is protected, the team will forfeit its next highest selection.

 

“A Club that signs one Qualified Free Agent who is subject to compensation shall forfeit its highest available selection in the next Rule 4 Draft,” the CBA reads. “Notwithstanding the above, a Club shall not be required to forfeit a selection in the top ten of the first round.”

Unless I am mistaken the Top 10 picks are protected, unless a team this year had a pick in the first 9 that did not sign, then they would receive a pick one spot later and therefore bump Team 10 out of protection. Did one of the first 9 teams this year not sign their pick (ala the Pirates last year)?

Ok I researched it and the Blue Jays who had pick #10 did not sign him. That means they will get pick #11 next year as compensation. That means the bottom 10 teams this year will have protected picks next year. So if you want he Cubs to have a protected pick they need to at least be the 10th worst team in baseball this year. Unless I am missing something and I am wrong, which could happen and does more often then I would like.
