The Cardinal Draft Tracker

As I noted in this morning’s podcast, the Cardinals are going to have some difficulty signing all of their draftees in the first 10 rounds; the college players might not create a bonus pool surplus to get the high schoolers. Below I have laid out different tables to track the signings.

I’ll be updating these as often as possible. These are current as of 06/24/2015.

First is the Pool Tracker. The Cardinals have $7,387,200 to spend without penalty on their first 10 rounds, plus any overage after that. The table also has the amount they can spend plus 5%; that’s the amount they can spend without losing future picks.

Note: All figures are in thousands.

Available Used Overage
$7,387.2 $7,214.4 $(172.8)
Available + 5% Used Overage
$7,756.6 $7,214.4 $(542.2)

Next is the signed percentage for the full draft.

Drafted Signed Percentage
42 30 71%

The following table is everyone the Cardinals drafted. As they are signed, I’ll put the bonus in, along with the difference in slot value. Signed players are bolded.

40 1211 Joseph Hawkins SS Missouri State MO $100.0 $- $-

Update: 10th round pick Kep Brown will not sign and will attend the University of Miami in the fall. The Cardinals will lose $149,700 from their bonus pool; they will still have $23,100 available to spend without penalty after taking out Brown’s slot value. That leaves $385,000 to spend before they lose draft picks; they probably won’t be able to sign any of Paul Salazar (11th), Jacob Schlesener (12th) or Kyle Molnar (25th) with only $485,000 available to spend.

They have until July 17th to sign their picks.

The last 2 tables are breakdowns of what they took. First is by position:

C 5 12%
1B 2 5%
2B 4 10%
3B 2 5%
SS 3 7%
OF 8 19%
RHP 13 31%
LHP 5 12%

Second is by education level:

High School 14 33%
JuCo 3 7%
College 25 60%
