Signing Bonuses: Alex Dickerson, Jason Creasy
The Pittsburgh Pirates officially announced the signings of third round pick Alex Dickerson and eighth round pick Jason Creasy last week. Baseball America has announced their signing bonuses. Dickerson received $380,700, which is right around slot for the 91st overall pick. Creasy received $250,000. Technically there are no slot prices after the 5th round, although the unofficial ceiling is $150,000, which technically makes Creasy an “over-slot” signing. He received more than 6th round pick Dan Gamache ($125,000) and 4th round pick Colten Brewer ($240,000).
The draft pick signing tracker is updated. The Pirates have spent $1,115,700 in announced bonuses so far this year.
