If they don’t sign Knight they lose the value of his slot, so no, they can’t use it elsewhere.

You can only use savings from any underslot in the top ten rounds to go overslot. There is also a 5% overage that is allowable without severe penalty (75% tax on overage).

Here is an article about it in case I wasn’t as clear as I’d hope to be.

Thanks for the info, Luke!

Looks like we won't have much leftover money to sign overslots after round 10.  Sounds like Knight is very disappointed where he was drafted, so I'm guessing he'll want overslot money.  I don't think he has much leverage, but the O's typically are not tough negotiators with their high draft picks.  I imagine we'll have a tough time signing Killian.

I think they will save enough on Grenier to get Knight signed.

I think it is easier to think of teams having a pool of $ to spend based on their picks in the first 10 rounds of the draft. 

Teams can go overslot or underslot on individual players in the first 10 rounds as long as those players are signed. 

If players drafted in the first 10 rounds are not signed, the team's pools is reduced by the assigned bonus slot $ for that pick.

Any bonus of a player taken after the 10th round over $125k counts toward the team's pool spending.

Teams can go over their draft pool but must pay a 75% tax on any overage between 100.1% and 105% of the allotted pool.  Penalties become much steeper if a team spends over their draft pool by 5% including loss of future draft picks.

I agree, but I think Knight sucks up most of the pool savings.

I'm OK with Rom and Knight being the only two overslots.

I would have preferred more.  With pitching prospects (and especially in the O's organization), the more quantity the better chance one makes it.

I'd have preferred if they had kept the second round pick, they could have picked Grenier there and drafted a pitching prospect with the comp pick.

I'd have preferred they kept all 7 draft picks Dan has given up for mediocre veterans and organizational filler!

All of it I would assume.

    • That's.... that's exactly what I'm saying. How are you not hearing yourself? He lost the job because he couldn't hit - like AT ALL - and the mounting pressure from all that not hitting was getting to be a strain on him and the organization. So they sent him down to work on that. Meanwhile, Elias doesn't want to - like you said yourself - go to McKenna or Hays. So they just throw whoever out there. If they weren't worried about Mullins' development they would have just kept him, but you can't keep a guy in the bigs with a broken swing. Wilkerson isn't any better defensively out there, that's obvious to see. But he could hit at least a LITTLE. And let's not forget Santander and Stewart got CF looks as well. 
    • I don't love LeBlanc, but at least it will probably prevent a Cashner reunion. 
    • Notice they haven't punished the Red Sox yet? I'm betting MLB and the Red Sox got together and canned Cora so they could try and do the slow fade on the Red Sox getting caught cheating again.
    • Certainly not by me, but I think it will probably be old news to the casual fans in a few years. The only think they could have done to make it stick was have them vacate the title, as impractical as that may have been. 
    • Fans were not super keen on Christian Walker, but he's a starter in Arizona now. I think Cedric Mullins has shown enough potential (a year removed from .289/.346/.472 in AAA and 21 SB at 23yo) to get the benefit of the doubt that he had a down year instead of being branded as hopeless. 
    • I think it was worse because he lost it to Wilkerson.  They decided that a utility infielder was a better choice for CF than Mullins.  They decision to not promote McKenna or Hays had more to do with their development than it did what was happening at the ML level. I'm not convinced they sent Mullins down to facilitate his development.  I think they looked at him, looked at Wilkerson, and wanted Wilkerson in CF.  I think they have written Mullins off as a prospect.
    • If he can throw and he isn't a waiver guy, maybe a team like Pittsburgh could use him. If he can't and is, maybe we can give his slot to Mason Williams. Slow day here.
