Royals, Tigers Have Largest Bonus Draft Allotments

Draft

Even though their first pick is not until No. 18, the Kansas City Royals have the largest bonus allotment for June's draft, edging the Tigers, who have the No. 1 pick. Both teams have more than $12 million to spend in the draft this year.

In addition to their first round selection, the Royals have two compensatory picks at No. 33 and No. 34 for losing free agents Lorenzo Cain and Eric Hosmer and a competitive balance selection at pick No. 40. When adding in their second-round selection, the Royals have five picks in the top 60.

The Rays also benefit from extra picks, slotting in with the third-largest total allotment thanks to a compensatory selection for failing to sign 2016 supplemental first-round pick Drew Rasmussen and a compensation selection for losing free agent Alex Cobb. The Rays also have a competitive balance selection after the second round at pick No. 72.

Overall, pick values in the draft are up 4.2 percent. The first overall pick is now valued at slightly over $8 million, up from about $7.7 million last year.

The Dodgers have the smallest allotment, but even they have more than $5 million to spend.
