Load up on information before the Sox make their first three picks tonight

If you're wary of watching the White Sox in the middle of a five-game losing streak, Major League Baseball has provided a pleasant diversion in the form of the MLB draft, which starts tonight on MLB Network and MLB.com at 5 p.m. CT. The draft itself starts an hour later, with the first 77 picks broadcast live.

The White Sox have three picks over the first two rounds, the middle one coming via compensation for Jeff Samardzija signing with the Giants (slot value in parentheses):

  • No. 10 ($3,380,600)
  • No. 26 ($2,128,500)
  • No. 49 ($1,284,500)

The combined slot value for these picks accounts for 72 percent of the White Sox' draft bonus pool, which is $9,416,600.

If you don't pay attention to the draft until it happens, allow us to help you get up to speed.
