The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed all of their picks in the top ten round, 12 players in all and we now know how their draft bonus pool shapes up. The new numbers are:
Connor Joe $1,250,000
Nelson Jorge $125,000
Kevin Krause $143,600
Krause signed for slot, while Joe signed for $207,600 under slot. Jorge signed for $39,700 under slot. Our draft signing tracker has been updated with all the information.
The Pirates now have approximately $484,485 available for over-slot deals without losing a draft pick. Of that total, $131,300 is from the draft bonus pool and the rest is the 5.0% they are allowed to spend over the bonus pool before the lose a draft pick. They will have to pay 75% tax on anything they spend over the $131,300.
This is also assuming that none of the picks signed after the tenth round required an over-slot deal. Eric Thomas Jr, taken in the 21st round, had a commitment to Sam Houston State, so he may have required an over-slot deal to sign.
