The Los Angeles Dodgers are a Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise based in Los Angeles, California. They play in the National League West division. Since the institution of MLB's Rule 4 Draft, the Dodgers have selected 57 players in the first round. Officially known as the "First-Year Player Draft",[1] the Rule 4 Draft is MLB's primary mechanism for assigning players from high schools, colleges, and other amateur clubs to its franchises. The draft order is determined based on the previous season's standings, with the team possessing the worst record receiving the first pick.[1] In addition, teams which lost free agents in the previous off-season may be awarded compensatory or supplementary picks.[2]

Of the 58 players picked in the first round by Los Angeles, 32 have been pitchers, the most of any position; 20 of these were right-handed, while 11 were left-handed. Nine players each at shortstop and seven in the outfield were selected, while five catchers, three first basemen, and two third basemen were taken as well. The team also selected one player at second base.[3] Seven of the players came from high schools or universities in the state of Texas, while California follows with six players.

Five Dodgers first-round picks have won a World Series championships with the team. Pitchers Bob Welch (1977) and Steve Howe (1979) played with the 1981 championship team.[4][5] Shortstop Dave Anderson (1981) and first baseman Franklin Stubbs (1982) were a part of the 1988 championship team.[6][7] Catcher Mike Scioscia (1976) won championships with both teams.[8] Welch was also on the Oakland Athletics' 1988 team which lost to the Dodgers in the 1988 Series.[4] Howe and Rick Sutcliffe (1974) each won the MLB Rookie of the Year award.[5][9]

The Dodgers have made 11 selections in the supplemental round of the draft and have never made the first overall selection.[3][10] They have also had 16 compensatory picks since the institution of the First-Year Player Draft in 1965.[3] These additional picks are provided when a team loses a particularly valuable free agent in the prior off-season,[2][11][V] or, more recently, if a team fails to sign a draft pick from the previous year.[12] The Dodgers have failed to sign one of their first-round picks, Luke Hochevar (2005), but received no compensation pick.[13][14]

Footnotes[edit]

  • V Free agents are evaluated by the Elias Sports Bureau and rated "Type A", "Type B", or not compensation-eligible. If a team offers arbitration to a player but that player refuses and subsequently signs with another team, the original team may receive additional draft picks. If a "Type A" free agent leaves in this way his previous team receives a supplemental pick and a compensation pick from the team with which he signs. If a "Type B" free agent leaves in this way his previous team receives only a supplemental pick.[12]
