    He should get to play somewhere in our minor leagues this year now, right? I'm not used to the top guy signing this early and I don't know what happens now, LOL
    Yes, he will be playing, at the latest, in 10 days when Billings opens up. He may start in Dayton too.

    Cool. Thanks for the info!

    The Reds have signed first-round pick Phillip Ervin for the exact slot recommendation of $1,812,400 according to Baseball America's Jim Callis (on Twitter). Ervin is advised by Moye Sports Associates..

    I went back and checked the numbers on the BA site. The numbers were repeated unintentionally.

    Can someone confirm this?

    Thanks.

    It is close enough. The Reds pool money is a little over $6M. They can spend whatever they want after round 10, as long as it isn't more than $100,000. Anything over that counts toward their "cap" in its entirety. Everything spent between rounds 1-10 counts toward the cap. A failure to sign a player goes against your "cap" and you lose that money. For example, if you don't sign your #8 round pick and the slot is $160,000, you lose that $160,000 off of your draft cap.

    Since we have our first signing with a $ figure associated with it, you can see how the spreadsheet version gives you the remaining money.

    Shedrick Long on his Tweeter feed has himself listed as a Catcher in the Reds's organization and told one of his friends who was drafted by the Giants that he would be playing against him.

    I'm betting that out 1A pick will sign for less money in a pre-draft deal, which will give us the money to sign pick #14.

    They'll save on contracts for Weiss and Bratvett for sure, and probably Wright, so that will free up some of that top 10 money for the talented kids with signability issues who came later (Abreu, Morales, Collins and others). I'm wondering if they got Franklin on a below slot deal, too.
