The Cleveland Guardians will pick first in the 2024 MLB amateur draft next summer for the first time after winning the second-ever draft lottery at baseball's winter meetings.
The Guardians had just a 2% chance of earning the No. 1 pick and beat out eight other teams with better odds.
The Oakland Athletics, Kansas City Royals and Colorado Rockies each had an 18.3% chance of winning the first pick, tied for the best percentage among all teams.
The Cincinnati Reds will pick second in the July 14 draft at Arlington, Texas, followed by Colorado, Oakland, the Chicago White Sox, Kansas City, St. Louis, the Los Angeles Angels, Pittsburgh and Washington.
