2012 MLB Draft Order: Phillies Will Draft 40th In First Round

The first round of the 2012 MLB Draft is scheduled to get going Monday night in Secaucus, NJ.

While the baseball draft doesn't get the same attention nationally as the NFL or even the NBA drafts, it has been gaining steam since it's debut on the MLB Network.

Philadelphia Phillies fans will have to be patient, with the Phils not having a selection until the 40th overall selection. The pick is in fact a compensatory one.

Ruben Amaro Jr. has a big decision to make, with the Phillies major league club aging and often injured. Whoever Amaro takes Monday night could go a long way in helping to replenish the team in a few years.

The Houston Astros will kick things off with the first overall pick.

Here's the complete order of the first round:

  1. Houston Astros
  2. Minnesota Twins
  3. Seattle Mariners
  4. Baltimore Orioles
  5. Kansas City Royals
  6. Chicago Cubs
  7. San Diego Padres
  8. Pittsburgh Pirates
  9. Miami Marlins
  10. Colorado Rockies
  11. Oakland Athletics
  12. New York Mets
  13. Chicago White Sox
  14. Cincinnati Reds
  15. Cleveland Indians
  16. Washington Nationals
  17. Toronto Blue Jays
  18. Los Angeles Dodgers
  19. St. Louis Cardinals
  20. San Francisco Giants
  21. Atlanta Braves
  22. Toronto Blue Jays
  23. St. Louis Cardinals
  24. Boston Red Sox
  25. Tampa Bay Rays
