Rather scary note that Venezuelan players have requested that their signing bonuses not be reported.

Still waiting for Polanco. Marcano isn't eligible until the end of next month.

They're going to need to trade for more slots then.

$4.425M committed to four guys. Going to need more than just $325k to sign Marcano and Salazar, I would think.

The JDB Baseball site is reporting the Mets have signed IF/OF Patricio Diaz for $85K.

He's listed at 6'0 175 DOB 3/13/01

That's now $4.51M/$4.75M

Expecting Milton Ramos to be traded to the White Sox by the end of the day.

How much can the Mets spend without being penalized next year?

It doesn't work like that anymore. There's no penalties, you are just simply barred from exceeding your cap, like a hard salary cap. You are allowed to trade for more slots though.

The Mets' current cap is $4.75M, which they almost definitely will need to exceed.
