    I believe it is stoetld before their second round pick as it relates back to the old rules where teams in the lower half were risking their #2 pick. Should be a comp pick around 35 and then a stoetld 2nd round in the low 70s. Six Type A players became modified Type A free agents, meaning a team signing one of them not required to forfeit a draft pick, but the team losing them will receive a draft pick in the slot immediately before the pick they would have received had the player actually had Type A status.

    Clubs won’t have to surrender a draft pick to sign one of the oollfwing six players: Heath Bell, Michael Cuddyer, Kelly Johnson, Ryan Madson, Josh Willingham and Francisco Rodriguez. Teams that lose these players after offering arbitration will obtain first round picks in the slot before the signing team plus a supplementary draft pick for a total of two selections. The Reds don’t have to surrender a draft pick to sign Madson, but the Phillies will obtain two picks this June because they offered arbitration after the season. One selection will come before the Reds’ first round pick and the other will come in the supplementary first round. Both from MLBtraderumors.com, there’s also an acticle from Matt Gelb stating that if the Phils didn’t sign Madson they’d get the pick before the signing team’s first round selection. The wording is confusing but all indications are that the Phillies will pick 14th and the Reds move back a slot to 15.
