Top signing: 3B Wander Valdez, Dominican Republic, $495,000.

Total signings: 24.


When the Twins signed Dominican shortstop Wander Javier for $4 million in 2015, they put all of their bonus pool money for 2015-16 into one player, supplementing the class with signings of $10,000 or less exempt from the bonus pools. They switched things up with a different approach in 2016-17, avoiding seven-figure deals and spreading their money around to a wider variety of players. The Twins also opened a new academy in the Dominican Republic, where they will send all of their 2016 signings to debut in the Dominican Summer League.
