FA draft compensation system?


Recommended Posts

There are a bunch of FAs out there that are Type A that nobody has signed because the player would cost a first or second round pick to sign.

Considering you lose a draft pick for signing said player, could a team theoretically wait until after the 2009 draft to sign a Type A player and not forfeit a pick, or would they forfeit a pick in the 2010 draft by doing so?

Also if the player signs a minor league deal with an invite, but gets a large signing bonus for doing so, could that also skirt the losing the draft pick for signing a Type A FA.

Just wondering if some of this stuff might happen because of the way the system is and the way teams are holding onto their picks...
