Also note that Martin and Papierski are involved in the CWS and contract discussions will not begin until they are done.

Last year the Astros signed Forrest Whitley for $600k over slot and it took a while to line up all the ducks. This year the slow down might be for a similar reason. They may be blowing by that figure to sign J.B. Bukauskas.

When Joe Perez was taken with pick #53 as a 3B, comments were made that he was more of a 5th - 6th round pick at that position. If the Astros paid him at a 5th - 6th round rate, that would give them approx $1m more to give Bukauskas.

In addition Corbin Martin could be signed at below slot. If the Astros combine that with the additional $237.9k top 10 round picks signing underslot and the 5% they can go over pool w/o losing a pick, Bukauskas could end up getting $1.3m - $1.5m overslot for his bonus.

Mark Berman says Corbin Martin took physical today and will sign Tuesday or Wednesday.

Y'all are awesome. Thanks!

Alan Zepeda said...

your calculations on Nathan Perry, his draft slot is $326,600, he signed for $230,000, leaving $96,600 on the table. You have it as $95,400 left.

37-1101 Matthew Merrill is playing for the GCL Astros -
GCL Astros (1-1) 9, GCL Marlins (2-0) 14
This game included 23 hits and 13 different pitchers, few of whom were effective. Matt Merrill, a lefty prep arm out of Oklahoma who the Astros snagged late on day 3, had the worst go of it on the mound, allowing 5 runs in 0.1 IP.

Mark Berman reports that Mike Papierski, catcher for LSU, draft pick #9, selection #271, has agreed to terms and will sign Monday, in Florida.

What's going on with #15 pick Bukauskas? Astros could use him in bullpen NOW.

Anonymous said...

Do you think that the Astros will be able to sign Andres Santana?

Kenneth Meadows said...

Nitpicky I know, but Serano's +/- Value should be a +

Mine says it's correct. Maybe refresh your browser????
