SAN FRANCISCO — For the first time since 2008, the Phillies will pick four times in Major League Baseball's top 100 draft picks.

The official order for June's draft was released Tuesday. Changed compensation rules as dictated by the new collective bargaining agreement have changed how picks are assigned. The Phillies will select 40th, 54th, 77th and 95th.

Compensation for losing Ryan Madson is the 40th and 77th pick. The 54th pick is awarded for losing Raul Ibanez. And 95th is the Phillies' second-round pick.

For signing Jonathan Papelbon, the Phillies forfeited their first-round pick at No. 31. Boston was also awarded the 37th pick for losing Papelbon.

In 2008, when the Phillies last had four top 100 picks, they selected Anthony Hewitt, Zach Collier, Anthony Gose and Jason Knapp. Gose and Knapp were used in trades for Roy Oswalt and Cliff Lee, respectively.

The draft is shortened from 50 to 40 rounds under the new CBA. The Cardinals have five of the first 59 selections and the Blue Jays hold five of the first 60 picks.
