Up-To-Date International Bonus Pools For All 30 Teams

Teams consummated six trades involving international bonus slot money within one week of the July 2 opening bell for the international signing period. (See trade chronology below.) This activity dramatically altered the spending pools for all teams involved, with the Cubs adding $963,100 to their international pool and the Astros subtracting $784,700 from theirs. Six other teams fell somewhere in between.

The chart below provides up-to-date international spending pools for all clubs, to which they must abide until the next signing period begins on July 2, 2014. Each club’s bonus pool, as determined by Major League Baseball, is the sum of the slot values it possesses, plus a $700,000 base allocation.
