2011 MLB Draft: Order, TV Schedule And More

The 2011 MLB Draft gets underway on Monday night and the Colorado Rockies will have two selections over the first round and the compensatory/supplemental first round proceedings. But as in recent years, the Rockies will need to wait a little while to make their selections.

This year their first pick comes in at No. 20. This is actually a bit lower in the round than usual due to additional selections inserted into the first round. Arizona, San Diego and Milwaukee all failed to sign their first-round selections in 2010, which, under MLB rules, gives those teams a draft pick immediately following where they chose the previous year. For example, the D'Backs drafted Barrett Loux sixth overall and didn't sign him after injury issues cropped up. They will now get the seventh overall pick. However, these additional picks don't come with compensation, so the teams are likely to draft players they know they will sign with them.

After the 20th pick, the Rockies must wait until No. 45 overall, or 12 selections into the compensatory round. These picks are rewarded to teams who lose players through free agency. Type 'A' free agents give the losing team the signing team's first-round selection (top 15 protected, sending the second-round pick instead) and a compensatory pick. Type 'B' free agents give the losing team a compensatory pick. The Rockies picked up No. 45 due to Octavio Dotel. As part of a gentleman's agreement, the Rockies offered arbitration and Dotel nodded and declined. He signed with Toronto.

Tune into the MLB Network at 4 p.m. MT for a predraft show and then 5 p.m. MT for the actual draft. MLB.com will also have live streaming coverage.
