The reason why we haven't traded the pick
Typically, the Competitive Balance Lottery has been held in late July. Introduced when the current Collective Bargaining Agreement began in December 2011, the lottery gave teams that have either one of the 10 smallest markets or 10 smallest revenue pools a chance to obtain extra Draft picks. Six picks have been awarded after each of the first and second rounds. Any teams that received revenue-sharing funds that didn't fit in either group of 10 have been added to the mix for the picks following the second round, or Competitive Balance Round B.
I was using past tense because the future of the Lottery is a bit up in the air, because the current Agreement will expire this year and a new one will have to be collectively bargained by Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association. As part of those negotiations, it's possible the format of the Lottery will change in 2017. As a result, both MLB and the MLBPA agreed to postpone the Lottery until Jan. 25, 2017, to give them time to adjust to any changes.
