The lottery involved the 10 teams with the lowest revenue and 10 in the smallest markets and was six picks after the first round. A club's odds of winning the lottery were based on its winning percentage last season.
The teams that did not win a pick after the first round were entered into another lottery for picks after the second round.
The Padres, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, Rays, Pirates and Mariners won second-round picks.
The competitive balance draft was agreed upon as part of the labor agreement that went into effect in 2012.
