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.
