2017 MLB Draft Slots And Bonus Pools

Baseball America has obtained proposed individual bonus slots for the 2017 draft. These slots were sent to agents on Thursday, and have not yet been sent to teams. As reported in December, the first overall pick comes with a bonus slot value of $7.4 million, down from more than $9 million in 2016.

The new Collective Bargaining Agreement redistributes the slot money, shifting more money to the top picks and bringing the slots at the top closer together. In 2016, there was a gap of more than $6 million between the first overall pick and the 15th; in 2017, that gap will shrink to less than $4 million.

In addition to the first overall slot value decreasing, slots past pick No. 54 have decreased from 2016. In theory, this change will reduce the flexibility teams have to sign players for under-slot bonuses and redistribute their bonus pools elsewhere.

The aggregate bonus of the top 312 picks is $233,700,800. Players selected after the 10th round can now sign for up to $125,000 before their bonus counts against their team’s pool. This is up from $100,000, which the previous CBA stipulated.

Below are the bonus pools for each team, as well as the individual slots for each pick. Each team’s bonus pool is the sum of the slots of each of its picks. If a team fails to sign a player, it loses the slot money of the pick it used on the unsigned player. (*-given to Astros by MLB from Cardinals as part of hacking penalty).
