Baseball America Releases the Draft Pick Slot Amounts

2013 draftBaseball America has released the assigned pick values for each draft position in the top ten rounds of the 2013 draft. We already knew that the Pirates had the fifth biggest draft pool, but now we know how much they have to spend on each pick.

Their first pick is the number nine selection, which they got for failing to sign Mark Appel. The pick is valued at $3,029,600, which is slightly higher than the value of the number eight pick last year. Their second pick is their normal first round pick at 14th overall. That’s valued at $2,569,800. Here is the complete list:

1 (9): $3,029,600

1 (14): $2,569,800

2: $1,065,400

3: $612,000

4: $429,200

5: $321,400

6: $240,600

7: $180,400

8: $155,400

9: $145,200

10: $135,600

To compare those amounts to last year’s round-by-round amounts, check out last year’s Draft Pick Signing Tracker.

The compensation pick that the Pirates traded away to get Gaby Sanchez (#35 overall) is worth $1,587,700.

    $3 million for 3B Colin Moran at #9, $2.5 for J.P. Crawford at #14, $1 million for LHP Marco Gonzales in the 2nd round. That would make my year if that’s who we get.

    I’ll have exactly what you’re having – that would be a grand slam draft! (although I’m not sure Gonzales will still be around by Round 2/#14)
