The Red Sox may have broken the $10 million barrier for draft bonuses, but they’re not alone.
The Royals spent $10,165,000 on bonuses for draft picks in the first 10 rounds alone, led by No. 3 overall choice Eric Hosmer ($6 million) and fourth-rounder Tim Melville ($1.25 million). Kansas City also made a reported seven-figure offer to seventh-rounder Jason Esposito that he turned down.
Complete bonus amounts for all signees aren’t yet available. Once we track them down, we’ll determine the all-time record holder once and for all.
Thanks to all the Royals fans who brought this to our attention.
