In baseball, a Sandwich Pick is when a first or second-round draft pick signs with a different team as a free agent, and the former team had offered the player arbitration, then the player's former team is entitled to a draft pick during the "sandwich round" of next year's draft. A sandwich round, also known as a compensatory round, occurs after the first, but before the second round of the draft. For instance, if a team has the No. 5 pick in the first round but fails to sign the player, then the team receives a pick in the first sandwich round of the following year. The order of picks in a sandwich round is determined by inverse standings.[1]
