Barnes said the Padres lowballed him so he told them no thank you.
The Pirates made him a great offer and he agreed. He has not signed but said he plans to.

Could’ve gotten a better player, but because he won’t command slot that could help us sign Appel.

If I was picked 45th I would expect to get slot money, that is what the slots are for.
