ESPN’s Keith Law has a new blog post discussing possible bonus demands for a couple of projected first-round picks.
- Law says high school first baseman Eric Hosmer has a "reported demand" of $7MM. Hosmer is advised by Scott Boras. Law says Hosmer would go in the #5-8 range if not for his price tag. Could he fall to the Nationals, Rangers, or A’s if one of those teams is willing to pony up?
- Corner infielder Pedro Alvarez might be looking for something in $8.6MM range. Some folks think the Rays will pass but the Pirates will make a splash and take Alvarez.
