NEW YORK — The Reds, Athletics, Rockies, Diamondbacks, Marlins and Pirates won picks after the first round of next year's draft in Major League Baseball's competitive balance lottery.

The lottery involved the 10 teams with the lowest revenue and 10 in the smallest markets. They were competing for 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, Indians, Twins, Brewers, Orioles and Rays won second-round picks.

The competitive balance draft was agreed upon as part of the labor agreement that went into effect in 2012.
