The trend of signing mid first-round picks to 2006 (and not 2007) MLB slot recommendations continues as the Mariners have landed No. 11 overall pick Phillippe Aumont for $1.9 million. MLB’s slot for this year was $1.71 million, down 10 percent from 2006.
No. 10 pick Madison Bumgarner (Giants) and No. 14 choice Jason Heyward (Braves) recently signed deals worth exactly their 2006 slots. No. 17 pick Blake Beavan (Rangers) signed yesterday for a bonus that almost exactly split the difference between the 2006 and 2007 recommendations for his slot.
The Nos. 9 (Jarrod Parker, Diamondbacks) and 12 (Matt Dominguez, Marlins) picks are still trying to bridge the gap between theÂ 2006 and 2007Â slots. MLB values Parker’s slot at $1.89 million (down from $2.1 million) and Dominguez’ at $1.71 million (down from $1.9 million).Â
