MLB’s second annual lottery stung the Oakland Athletics again Tuesday as the team garnered the fourth pick in the 2024 MLB Draft. Oakland led the majors with 112 losses in 2023 and entered with an 18.3 percent chance of getting the No. 1 overall selection. The Cleveland Guardians will get the first pick despite having just a 2 percent chance. The Cincinnati Reds made an even bigger leap as they entered the draft with just an 0.9 percent chance of claiming the top pick.
