Orioles 11th in total Draft pool Allotment
Round one, No. 4 overall allotted $4.2 million.
Round two, No. 65 overall allotted $793,700.
Round three, No. 99 overall allotted $481,100.
According to the new CBA rules for the draft, any club not signing one of its top ten round picks will lose the bonus money allotted money for that specific pick. But any club that signs a top ten round pick for a savings can use the savings amount on other selections.
"If the Orioles didn't sign the number four pick, they can't take his allotted $4.2 million and distribute it in the rest of the draft, it just goes away. But let's say they spent $3.2 on that pick. That gives them a million to play with and go over the limits for another pick or picks, even one after the tenth round," Callis said.
