Thread: Eagles in the draft

    Default Re: Eagles in the draft

    Two pitchers in the first 9 rounds, so Rodney and BJ must be doing something right.

    And on another happy note, Swaggerty is finally gone from South Alabama.

    The MLB website lists the signing money for each draft choice. These guys will get around $150,000 each

    Holy smokes! I had no idea. So those picks are in the 9/10th rounds, and all those guys get that kind of bonus?

    That's unbelievable. Good for them.

    A few years ago MLB put the clamps on signing bonuses, right when Roach and Beck got drafted. Each team has a pool of signing bonus money and a max per pick they can spend. It's a lot more complicated that than and what I understand. ie overall #1 gets a max of $xxxx and pick 2 is slotted a certain max amount and so on and so on. I seem to recall that Bruce Benedict's son get drafted in a later round and received like a $30K signing bonus.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    +1. Years and years ago a kid could get BIG money to sign.
