A good shorthand for projecting these types of bonuses is to look at the next team they would have likely fallen to and splitting the difference between the two slot values.There were a number of teams that were in on him in the first round, most notably the Angels at #15 probably would have taken a hard look if he were available.That's more or less exactly where his bonus ended up (the midpoint between the two slots is $4.04M).

Thanks for that explanation.Seeing that Wallner was also ranked below the spot the Twins took him, should probably get a similar savings when he is signed.

I found it interesting to read through the discussions from the draft when the Twins took Tyler Jay, in particular, the Benintendi thread. He was one of the fastest riders in the draft, and my question at the time was how a kid could really change their outlook in one spring season? Obviously, the late helium for Benintendi was correct, he had turned a corner or really started to show who he was.

For Cavaco, I’ve read that he didn’t appear in a lot of the big prep showcase events last summer (Area Code Games and Perfect Game Showcase) and so wasn’t on people’s radar until quite late. Thus the late rise in his stock. Here’s hoping that his value continues to rise as he starts his pro career. Will be interesting to watch his performance compared to the other kids in the draft, in particular prep kids who went before him (Witt, Greene, Abrams, plus Carroll after him) and others considered possible Twins’ picks like Langeliers, Jung (drafted before Cavaco) and Stott (who the Twins passed on).

Are all of these kids signing for under $150k?

Probably, though to this point we just have the names of those that signed beyond the 10th round. My guess is that none of them are more than $125K.

Doogie announced that Canterino is signing at $1 million and Seth Gray's (brother? father?) posted pictures of the Twins 4th round pick.

Updated the post to include a bonus pool tracker. Thought this was a useful addition. Let me know if there is anything else you would like us to track in this post, and I will see what we can do.

Bit surprised that Canterino signed for that much under slot, -$238,500.Starting to build a nice warchest to maybe go after one of the high school kids.Or maybe will need some of it for Julien?He is the one that the Auburn coach commented on?

Maybe with the bonus pool tracker a total on how much under or over slot we are with the signings so far...

I agree, since any of the slot money remaining for guys that haven't signed would cease to exist if they ultimately failed to sign them.I don't think this is likely to happen.

 

My quick math says they've saved a bit over $400K.I could see some of it being needed for 5th round pick Holland and later round pick Julien, but there are probably still some savings to be made on some of the other second-day guys and I'm not sure where it'll all go.They didn't even draft many high schoolers in the late rounds.

Looks like it is going to be another large class of signees.If memory serves, the Twins used to sign around 25+/- players out of each class...even when they still had 50 rounds. 

 

Somebody probably has this at the tip of their fingers, but I believe they signed around 33 last year making it one of the largest classes ever.If my Wisconsin math is correct, they have already signed 20.They will certainly try to sign all the top 10 which would add another 7.Also get the middle infielders from Auburn and another one or two elsewhere and you again have a class over 30.Seems to be the new plan going forward.

6th-rder Sawyer Gipson-Long signs with @Twins for $215k (pick 179 value = $274,800). Mercer RHP, lean frame, hit 95 mph late in spring, changeup is best secondary pitch. @MLBDraft
