Re: 2 Dirtbags in MLB Draft so far....
M. Johnson - 11th round - Boston
Luttrell - 13th round - Marlins
Teams can sign guys for up to 125K after the 10th round without the signing bonus counting against a team's bonus pool. Both of those guys were drafted around where they were supposed to be so it is very likely that they will sign.
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.
