I'm assuming a big chunk of that will come from Jones and possibly Daniel Wright.
It's hard to see where the additional $350K will come from. Granted, they have some leverage with numbers 8-10, but those are not high dollar amount slots. Need for some of the higher picks to take less than slot. Or, perhaps, someone in the top 10 does not get signed. I'm sure they have a plan, but it is not apparent to me. I suspect that the Reds feel they can lure some of these players with lower amounts than is being reported here.
