Minnesota Twins 2019 MLB Draft Signing Tracker

Now that the 2019 MLB Draft is behind us, it is time to sit back and wait for news on when each of the 41 picks will either sign or decided to forgo their opportunity to play with the Twins. As the signings start coming in, this page will consistently be updated, so be sure to check back to keep up to date with all of the signings.
This year the Twins have a bonus pool allotment of $9,905,800 to spread amongst their 11 picks in the top 10 rounds. Any pick after round 10 can sign for a value up to $125,000 without it counting against their bonus pool. There is a reasonable chance that the Twins were able to save some money with their picks in the top 10 rounds, which will allow them the ability to extend some of that money to their picks picks in later rounds.

Typically, teams will sign roughly 25 to 30 of their draft picks, though the Twins were able to sign 32 of their 39 draft picks in 2018. Let’s find out how many picks the Twins will sign this year?

11th round pick brubaker has already signed according to the list up above. And some other comments. Maybe use some of the leftover money for that Texas high school pitcher or the Puerto Rican outfielder or maybe their 40th rounder



I was also wondering about the Canadian HS pitcher Antoine Jean or were they able to sign him already?

Sounds like he’s committed to university of New Orleans and probably won’t sign. But money could change that real quick

Looks like all 11 of the first ten rounds are signed with +$443,000.Overall, looks like they signed 31 of 41. 

 

Can they use the entire $443,000 and give $568,000 to the Auburn second baseman?Would be almost exactly what they paid Holland.I know he said he was returning, but dollars can change everything.

 

Hopefully they will get one or two more signed, making an unusually big class really big.But then we don't know, maybe this new regime will always sign 30+ every year.

Wow ... that a huge over-slot bonus ...

Wow I did not see that coming.That is a nice get for the Twins.Yet another power hitter with a bit of swing and miss concerns but he is young.Plenty of time to turn it around.Very happy they got him he has fair bit of upside Fangraphs had him at 88 and MLB at 177.Doesn't run real well, doesn't have a great arm but has an above average power stroke.Currently a lot of swing and miss but he has been hitting really well recently.He is a nice lottery ticket if you ask me and they needed to do something with that left over money anyway.

guess they didn't really like many prep players this year... not sure what to think about that.

Do they have enough powder left over to sign the Canadian lefty?Someone else?

 

[Disregard this comment, thought the amount listed above as remaining was after signing Julien.After looking again, they used every dollar remaining to get him signed.Nice going front office!]

 

Another year where they signed over 30 picks.Much different than the past when the norm was mid-20's signed each year.

Yeah I was thinking they would spend that money on one the High School pitchers they took late.Either they didn't like them that much or $500,000 wasn't enough to get them to sign? 

 

System needs more pitching lotto tickets if you ask me but experts said this year was not great for arms so looks like they are taking their shots with hitters that have potential instead of arms as they went over slot for two power hitters with swing and miss in Holland and now Julien. No such deals for any arms this year.

The two Stillwater kids taken in the 35 and 36 rounds have played together and been friends since they were very young.They are both headed to Oregon State and signing them was a long shot from the moment they were drafted.

I'm glad we signed Julien! We gave him $10,000 more than we gave our 4th rounder! So far we've signed 33 out of 41 picks. Hopefully we can sign a couple more of these guys! Go Twins!!!!! :)

Was thinking the Canadian but any high school pitcher would have been nice.

By my count Cavaco was the only HS player we signed. Did I miss anyone?
