The MLB draft used to be semi-secretive in order for drafted players to not find out who was selected in order for teams to have better leverage in signing them. Times change. Today's event is televised. The Halos are not playing today, so this is perfect, right... except... well... there was that stupid Hambone signing and...

The Angels do not have a pick in the first round. The pick was forfeited to the Rangers for signing Josh Hamilton.

They have no supplemental between-round picks.

Their first pick is #59, late in the second round.

That is all they will be picking today.

Their second pick is #95 late in the third round, that is tomorrow.

Their third pick is #127 late in the fourth round

Their fourth pick is #157 in the fifth followed by every thirty picks thereafter (#187, #217 etc.)

There are forty rounds.
