    Re: 2020 Draft

    Maybe I'm just missing something...

    So, after the 5th round, the rest of the eligible players are then free agents, able to sign with ANY club? But the compensation is capped at 20k? Since when did free agency mean that their ability to sign with the highest bidder was null and void? Who is to stop a bidding war for a "free agent"? What is the penalty if a team signs someone for more than 20k?

    Some lawyers are going to be pretty well-off next year...

    There's no penalty - you literally aren't allowed to do it. The bidding war is capped at $20,000 and the player then just has to choose which organization he wants to play for.

    Heyman says draft probably will be June 10.

    Separately, I’ve read it could be five rounds or ten rounds.

    It is 5 rounds now. MLB holds the right to make it more than 5 rounds if they so choose.

    Both the CBS and BA articles on the recent agreement say the 2020 draft can be as few as five rounds. It’s a lower limit.

    MLBTR tonight says it will be five or ten rounds, decision to follow.

    More is more......

    I assume the new Reds drafting regime will pass on any HS hurlers as they did last year.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
