The 2016 MLB Draft starts on Thursday night, the first of three days packed full of picks. Here is a look at the schedule for the three days, and how to keep track of things as they happen.

The first night, Thursday, is the only part of the draft that is televised, with the first 77 picks on MLB Network. That is the first two rounds, plus Competitive Balance Rounds A & B.

The Dodgers have four picks on the first night, picking 20th in the first round with their own pick, then No. 32 as compensation for losing Zack Greinke, followed by No. 36 for failing to sign 2015 pick Kyle Funkhouser, and No. 65 overall, the club's second-round selection.

MLB.com will simulcast the MLB Network broadcast on Thursday night, which begins at 4 p.m. PT, then carry the mantel all along on both Friday and Saturday.
