Dodgers Heading for Top 10 Pick

And over here you’ll see the Dodgers are now in the bottom 10 in MLB by win-loss record, which means they’re almost guaranteed a protected first-round pick in 2011, but also they’ll have a top 10 pick. The last time the Dodgers had a pick that low was 2006, when the Dodgers drafted Clayton Kershaw.

The Dodgers have only had 10 top 10 picks in franchise history out of 43 first round picks, supplemental picks not included.

e: As reader Jared Massey (and writer of LA Dodger Talk) pointed out, two top 10 picks in 2010 didn’t sign (Barret Loux at no. 6 for the D-Backs and Karston Whitson at no. 9 for the Padres). The D-Backs will get pick no. 6A (which goes behind pick no. 6) and Padres will get 9A. The draft will look like this:

Picks
1
2
3
4
5
6
6A
7
8
9
9A
10

With the Dodgers being the 21st worst team in MLB, they’ll get pick 9, which will be the 10th pick in the draft.
