2018 MLB Draft order: First round, supplemental, competitive balance picks and how to watch, live stream

On Monday, the 2018 First-Year Player Draft will begin with a live broadcast from the MLB Network studios in Secaucus, NJ. The annual amateur draft covers three days and 40 rounds. Here is our mock draft. And here's how to watch:

What: Round 1 and Competitive Balance Round A (note: Round 2 and Competitive Balance Round B will be streamed on MLB.com)
When: 7 p.m. ET
Where: MLB Network
Streaming: MLB.com

As a reminder, the draft order is the reverse order of the previous year's regular season standings. MLB does not have a draft lottery, nor can postseason results change the draft order. Teams can gain and lose draft picks via free agent compensation, however. Here are the teams that forfeited picks this year:

Free agent compensation rules have changed with the current collective bargaining agreement. Compensation picks are now tied to market and contract size. Furthermore, MLB hands out 14 Competitive Balance Lottery draft picks to small market teams each year. Those picks can be traded. The Twins sent one to the Padres in the recent Phil Hughes trade.

So, with all that mind and the draft right around the corner, here is the 2018 MLB Draft order. Aside from potential last minute Competitive Balance Lottery pick trades, these selections are locked in.
