Re: 2 Dirtbags in MLB Draft so far....
Both went a couple of rounds lower than projected but college guys rarely go back to school if teams draft them in the first ten rounds because those slots count against the bonus pool if the players don't sign and that will make it harder for teams to sign other players.
Luis Ramirez 7th Round - Rangers, Est Bonus $245K
Dev. Harrison 9th Round - Blue Jays, Est Bon. $159K
Ramirez drafted a little lower than projected, might
be able to come back and improve since he's a starter.
Harrison's poor year obviously hurt. Undersized, 22 year old, likely only projects as a relief pitcher, limits how much he could really move. It's not a lot of money, but relievers can climb quickly, so
he might want to get crackin as a pro and see if he can earn it on the back end.
