Add #Mets 33rd-round pick Cole Kleszcz to the list of official draft signings. He led all college players with 27 home runs at Azusa Pacific in his junior season.

No money details yet for the top 10 rounders we signed?

Saved $827K on Jones, Ashford, and Ritter.
Doing some rough math and speculation...
With Allan's slot of $667K, that's ~$1.5M of the reported $3M he's asking. Figure the Mets need another $1M to $1.5M to sign him depending on whether Allan is willing to back down a little bit.
Would be sweet to save at least $500K on Baty and sign Wolf for no more than slot.
If Wollersheim, Genord and Ota get similar bonuses as Jones, Ashford and Ritter, that's over $400K they can use on Allan or a Day 3 guy. Mangum might get more than $10K, but I still don't see why it would be anything close to slot. My guess is $50K, saving the Mets nearly $440K.
So, in summary:
Allan slot: $667K
Saved on picks 5-6-7: $827K
Saved on Baty (possibly): $500K
Saved on picks 8-9-10 (possibly): $443K
Saved on Mangum (possibly): $437K
Potential total: $2.87M
If they need another $130K they can go over the total bonus pool and pay a $98K penalty.

The signing bonus figures for some #Mets draft picks per MLB Pipeline:
5th Rd RHP Nathan Jones - $10K
6th Rd OF Zach Ashford - $10K
7th Rd 2B Luke Ritter - $10K
8th Rd LHP Connor Wollersheim - $1K
That is a savings of $1,001,100 on bonus pool. #MLBDraft

Seems right. Expect 9th and 10th to be around that same 1k. The only way this works is spending ~ $50k on the seniors if Wolf is signed at slot.

I wanna see what the Mets save with Magnum tho as well...

Would be especially awesome if Allan can get signed for something like $2.5M and the Mets have a little bit to play with some of the interesting late round picks. Barco is not happening, but some of the other guys could be in play.

It's got to suck to be selected rounds 5-10 knowing you're going to get 10K or 1K, but if those guys were signed 11-40 they'd probably get a little more. Seems a little unfair.
Or am I overthinking it?

The system is so stupid.

Genord also signs for 10 K so more savings.
Mon Jun 10, 2019 8:57 pm
Genord signed for 10k
Mon Jun 10, 2019 9:00 pm
If they sign Ota for 1k and Mangum at 10k, that about $1.75m saved on 4-10 (52k total on the seniors). That gets you to 2.3 for Allen - so need another 600-700k from Baty and Wolf to get to 3m.
There's not going to be $$ for rounds 11+. And thats going as absolutely cheap as possible 4-10. Math just doesn't work.
