2019 draft picks signing information

Recommended Posts

NOTE: all numbers outside of parenthesis will be the original MLB pool, numbers in parenthesis are the added up value from that new list.

 

;TLDR version - We have $8,564,300 (or $8,567,100) left in our pool.  We have the potential of offering Bleday/Misner a total of up to $9,216,550 (or $9,219,490) without losing a draft pick.

 

MLB's original pool says $13,045,000, (using that link above, I added up the pick value of the top 10 picks and got $13,047,800).  I then added up what guys have been signed for and got $4,480,700.

That means for those top 10 picks, we have $8,564,300 (or $8,567,100) left.

Looking into it more (I provided the MLB info below), the top 10 picks are the only ones assigned a slot value that counts toward/against our pool figure.  Only if a guy from 11-40 signs over $125k will that count against our pool.  According to that list at that link, there were only a few guys right at that $125k figure, so they shouldn't count against our initial pool.  There are more guys unsigned, but I'm assuming the team will cap everyone out at that $125k figure to not affect their pool for Bleday and Misner.

Also important to note, we can exceed our bonus pool too, but we'll incur pentalties.  We can exceed it by up to 5% and "only" pay a 75% tax on the overage.  After that, we'd get hit with losing draft picks.

MLB's list at the link below says the Marlins had a $13,045,000 pool (so not sure where the extra $2,800 comes from adding up the picks from the new link, but still a negligible difference), but given that, that means we could go up to $13,697,250‬ ($13,700,190‬ using the new link) total (an extra 652,250 or 652,390) without losing a draft pick, and "only" paying a $489,187.50‬ (or $489,292.50) tax.

 

Written another way:

They can spend an extra $652k over their original pool allotment and only pay a 490k overage tax.  Meaning we have the potential of offering Bleday/Misner a total of $9,216,550 (or $9,219,490) without losing a draft pick.

 

 

From MLB:

https://www.mlb.com/news/2019-mlb-draft-pools-and-bonus-values

Quote

Each pick in the first 10 rounds of the Draft has an assigned value, with the total for each of a club's selections equals what it can spend in those rounds without incurring a penalty. If a player taken in the first 10 rounds doesn't sign, his choice's value gets subtracted from his club's pool. 

Any bonus money above $125,000 given to an individual player selected in rounds 11-40 also counts against a team's allotment.

...

If a team exceeds its assigned pool, it faces a penalty. Teams that outspend their allotment by 0-5 percent pay a 75 percent tax on the overage. At higher thresholds, clubs lose future picks: a first-rounder and a 75 percent tax for surpassing their pool by more than 5 and up to 10 percent; a first- and a second-rounder and a 100 percent tax for more than 10 and up to 15 percent; and two first-rounders and a 100 percent tax for more than 15 percent.

Frisaro says deal getting closer. Marlins wanted to give Bleday a week to get situated, deal will happen. I like that they gave him some time to let it sink in that he won a college championship and have a chance to say bye to everyone at Vandy and whatnot.

Taking Heyman's post at face value.....

 

If Bleday takes that $6,664,000, that'd leave us with around $1.9M left.  Now, Misner's slot is 2.1, which means there's some off math somewhere.

That said, if my math is roughly right, they can offer Misner up to roughly $2.55M (this would be a 5% over their pool total) after accounting for Bleday at full slot value before they run into higher overage charges and lose draft picks.
