Just curious, how does saving money help the Mets here? Seems like all the guys left to sign are college guys that won’t require going significantly over slot. Unless we needed the savings to sign Rocker?


It's $2 for every dollar, so even Cohen might consider that, but in theory, if there's any undrafted players they like, they could toss some extra money their way. It's happened before.

The Rocker number that's been tossed around is $6M. So, they roughly need to save $1.3M to be in line with his slot and the extra needed to reach his number. With what the Mets are giving the other picks. Looks like all the Ziegler savings will be going to Rocker.

Not the case here. The most they can offer is 20,000.

That strikes me as an odd rule. I would think 125k should be the standard limit, with the same understanding that overage counts against the pool.
