LOS ANGELES -- The 2015 MLB Draft is upon us which is has been stretched out to three days, though you'd think we would be used to that by now since this has been the format since 2009. On Monday, the festivities will be televised by MLB Network.
Monday will feature the first two rounds of the draft, plus the supplemental picks in between, and the competitive balance picks after both round. In all, 75 picks will be made, including four by the Dodgers:
- First round: No. 24 overall
- Supplemental first round: No. 35 overall (compensation for Hanley Ramirez signing with the Red Sox)
- Second round: No. 67 overall
- Competitive balance round B: No. 74 (obtained via trade from Orioles in Ryan Webb trade)
In between picks in the first round (including compensation picks) there will be a flexible time interval in between picks, between 3:30 and 4:30. For competitive balance picks, as well as for rounds two through 10, there will be one minute in between picks, with no time in between picks from rounds 11 through 40.
Several Hall of Famers and team legends will represent teams at the MLB Network studios on the draft's first day. The Dodgers will be represented by former manager Tommy Lasorda and longtime scout Hank Jones.
