On Wednesday, MLB announced the results of its competitive balance draft pick lottery.

First: What the heck is the competitive balance lottery? Long story short, the smallest-market and or lowest-revenue teams get a chance to win an extra draft pick each year. A team's odds of winning the lottery is based on its record in the previous year.

Those who wound up in Round A of the lottery will pick after the first round in the June 2015 draft. Those who fell into Round B will pick after the second round. And for the results.

First, Round A ...

And now Round B ...

Worth noting is that, unlike other MLB draft picks, competitive balance selections are eligible to be traded among teams.
