2019 MLB Draft: Order, Slot Values & Team Bonus Pool Amounts

The Orioles have the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, but the team with the largest total bonus pool doesn't pick until the 16th selection of the first round. With seven total picks on Day 1 and eight of the first 100 selections, the D-backs will have $16,093,700 to spend during the 2019 draft, just over $2 million more than the Orioles, who have the second-highest bonus pool.

Arizona has a plethora of draft selections for several reasons. First, they failed to sign their first selection in last year's draft (current UCLA freshman Matt McLain) with the 25th pick. For that they were given pick No. 26 in this year's draft. Secondly, the D-backs gained a pair of compensation picks between the first round and the competitive balance round A (No. 32 and No. 33) after both lefthander Patrick Corbin and outfielder A.J. Pollock signed with other teams in free agency this offseason for more than $50 million. Had either player signed for less than $50 million, the D-backs would have received a pick after the second competitive balance round. Third, the Diamondbacks received their own competitive balance round B pick (No. 74) as one of the 10 smallest markets or for having of the 10 smallest revenue pools in the game. The team then traded for the Cardinals' competitive balance round B selection (No. 75) in the offseason trade that sent Paul Goldschmidt to St. Louis.

The number of picks and extra pool money will allow the D-backs to make a large impact on the 2019 draft class. While it is more difficult to slide players down the board under the current CBA, having the most money in the draft could allow Arizona to confidently take any player who is falling for signability concerns. It could also allow the organization to take a few more risks on players with big tools but less track record, while not having their draft hinge upon those players panning out thanks to the depth of the class.

At the opposite end of the spectrum are the Red Sox, who have the smallest pool at $4,788,100. This is due, in part, to the organization surpassing the luxury tax threshold, which dropped their first pick ten spots, down to No. 43 overall.
