Recommended Bonuses

Top draft picks can ask for however much they like each summer because nothing officially limits the amount teams spend on their draft picks. Bud Selig presents each team with a recommendation for its slot, but the clubs don't have to stick to it. Here's a quick explanation of slotting:

  • Selig recommends a limit to keep bonuses down.
  • There are no direct consequences for a club that awards a big bonus.
  • Teams aren't supposed to know what the recommended bonuses are for other slots.
