Keith Law has here (MLB Draft -- Day two highlights and lowlights: AL - ESPN) that he thinks Stephen Gonsalves will be a tough sign. What do you guys think?

Twins didn't draft many LHP, in area of weakness in the system. It would be a blow to the draft if they can't sign him.

Twins sign 9th round pick Mitchell Garver for $40K. Signing this senior will save the Twins $108,100 to apply elsewhere in the draft.

Re Gonsalves: The Twins are confident they'll get him signed. Multiple sources have confirmed that. He might take up some of that extra cash, but the Twins have no reason to believe he won't sign.

The Twins drafted so many college kids early in the draft you have to think they were saving up a good amount of money for Gonsalves and/or Navarretto.

I know it's only been a couple days, but seeing that the Rangers have already signed 12 picks, I'm jealous.

Can we bold the guys that get signed? Once more and more of these guys sign it is going to be a headache to look at.
Do or do not. There is no try.

Are you planning on put the amount they signed for next to their names as well? Could make it nice and easy to get an idea of how much they are spending.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Here is a related link to Baseball America's Draft database. It includes the amount each player is signed for, and the current amount of the pool used vs allotted value. Worth taking a look at as more players are signed. 2013 MLB Draft Signings Central - BaseballAmerica.com

Here is a list of the slot values for the top 10 picks. Each pick after has an allotment not to exceed $100,000.:

TWINS
Round Pick Assigned Value
1 4 $4,544,400
2 43 $1,294,100
3 78 $703,000
4 110 $468,200
5 140 $350,500
6 170 $262,500
7 200 $196,600
8 230 $158,600
9 260 $148,100
10 290 $138,400
Bonus Pool $8,264,400

The R&P page will have all the draft information too. You'll just have to scroll down a little ways. This is much easier, though, if you're looking for one-stop shopping.

Nelson Molina and Tanner Mendonca have both reached agreements, pending physicals. They are scheduled to arrive in FM on Thursday. Contracts to be signed Friday or Saturday.

The Twins could add $413,220 to their bonus pool and incur only monetary penalties ($309,915 in fines).

That would be more than enough to overslot Gonsalvez and/or Logan Shore

Righty8383 - After the bonus amount in the original post, can you add how much above or below slot it is?

Molina's deal will count "a little" towards the spending cap, which means it is for "a little" over $100k.

I will if I have that information. Keep in mind with a lot of these guys, we may never find out exactly how much they got. Of course that may not be an issue with the top 10 picks. Also, I know its been listed, but I can't find the page that lists the slot value for each pick from rounds 1-10.

Twins front office has already said there is no way they are signing shore.

I don't see how they "can't" sign shore if they keep signing guys under slot, it would seem conceivable to be able to offer Shore the rest

I highly doubt it. He is looking for over a mil reportedly. My guess is that any savings from top 10 rounds goes to Gonclaves who will definitely need an above slot bonus to sign.

Where in the world did you see this?

As an aside, I'm not convinced that Gonsalvez is even going to get slot.

Shore was quoted somewhere, maybe the Pioneer Press, that he was not going to sign now but hoped the Twins would draft him again in a few years. Sounded like he was only going to sign if he was picked in the top few rounds.

Ah, thanks. I was surprised the normally tight lipped front office would have said anything particularly at this early stage.

Intentionally pick guys they don't think they can sign? Why would a team do that, if that is what you are saying? What is the strategy play? Draft picks are a limited resource.

No team signs all their picks. Twins most likely will sign 26-28 out of their 40 picks. After Shore wasn't picked in the top rounds of the draft there was no way to sign him. Twins grab a local kid for PR and the kid gets to say he was drafted by the Twins but choose college. Possible good will gesture for 3-years from now. Win-win for both sides.
