2004 Draft Order

It's been 16 years since San Diego took righthander Andy Benes with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1988 draft. When they make the first pick again in June, the Padres will join the Mets by drafting No. 1 overall for the fifth time in the draft's 40-year history. This year's draft is scheduled for June 7-8.

Teams draft in reverse order of their 2003 finish with the National League up first. The Padres also drafted first in 1970, '72 and '74.

The order of selection in the second half of the first round (picks 16-30) has changed to reflect compensation for major league free agents who signed with new clubs during the offseason.

The Twins will be the most active club, with five picks before the start of the second round. They receive two additional picks apiece for losing lefthander Eddie Guardado (Mariners) and LaTroy Hawkins (Cubs).

Here is the raw order, with adjustments:

1. Padres
2. Tigers
3. Mets
4. Devil Rays
5. Brewers
6. Indians
7. Reds
8. Orioles
9. Rockies
10. Rangers
11. Pirates
12. Angels
13. Expos
14. Royals
15. Diamondbacks
16. Blue Jays
17. Dodgers
18. White Sox
19. Cardinals
20. Twins
21. Phillies
22. Twins (1)
23. Yankees (2)
24. Athletics (3)
25. Twins (4)
26. Athletics
27. Marlins
28. Dodgers (5)
29. Royals (6)
30. Rangers (7)
