Thanks to their 115-loss regular season in 2018, the Baltimore Orioles hold the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft. It is the second time the O’s have held the No. 1 pick. They selected LSU right-hander Ben McDonald with the top pick in 1989. McDonald made his MLB debut a few weeks after the draft and retired with 78 wins and a 3.91 ERA in nine big league seasons.

The entire MLB draft covers 40 regular rounds — it used to be 100 rounds way back in the day — plus several compensation and competitive balance rounds. Three teams hold an extra first round pick this year while one team had their first round pushed back. Here are the details:

  • Braves: Received No. 9 pick as compensation for failing to sign 2018 first rounder Carter Stewart.
  • Diamondbacks: Received No. 26 pick as compensation for failing to sign 2018 first rounder Matt McLain.
  • Dodgers: Received No. 31 pick as compensation for failing to sign 2018 first round J.T. Ginn.
