Top 30 International Bonuses Of 2012


See also: Top 30 International Amateur Bonuses Of 2011


The following list includes the top 30 international amateur bonuses from 2012. The list does not include players who left Cuba, such as Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes or Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler. The age listed is the player’s age when he signed. An asterisk denotes a player signed before July 2, which means the player’s bonus will not count against the team’s 2012-13 international signing bonus pool. One notable player not listed is Dodgers lefthander Julio Urias, who signed with the Dodgers in a package deal from the Mexico City Red Devils. Baseball America could not verify his bonus.
