- The sailors They signed their picks from the first three rounds, according to MLB.com’s Daniel Kramer (Twitter link). This selection includes the twenty-first year Cole Young, who received a bonus of $3.3 million which is slightly higher than the slot price of $3,292,900. The high school quiz was a unanimous choice in the 12-20 range by raters, and is considered to have a high stakes as an all-around talent and a well-established future major, although there is some question as to whether he has the skill set to be a regular starter.

Schultz’s $2.8 million bonus is also a touch higher than the $2,789,400 allocated to the 26th group. A local producer born in Naperville, Illinois, Schultz is already 6’9″ at the age of 18, possesses a plus slider and a funky low delivery slot. McDaniel was the highest among experts on Schultz’s potential, ranking 34th on the enlistment list.

That’s less than the $2,373,000 slot price associated with the 32nd overall pick, which could reflect slight access from the Reds – BA was Stewart’s highest with an overall ranking of 58, and Law Stewart was 59. However, McDaniel believed Stewart had It could be a tough sign due to his commitment to Vanderbilt, but the third baseman in high school will instead ditch college for the minor leagues.

Nathan Ruiz of Baltimore Ruiz (Twitter link) reports that the Beavers received a bonus of $2.2 million, providing O with some savings under the slot price of $2,315,100. Pipeline ranked Cal’s player 22nd in their rankings, writing that “when the Beavers are locked up, they’re a proverbial pentathlete,” although the Beavers had some trouble keeping steady.
