The players will have restrictions on their free agency. They will be eligible to sign with another club for another signing bonus beginning on Dec. 5 up until Jan. 15. After Jan. 15, the player is still allowed to sign but cannot receive an additional signing bonus. Only the amount of the signing bonus beyond $200,000 will count toward a team’s signing bonus pool. Players are allowed to re-sign with the Braves, but if they choose to do so, they must wait until May 1 to sign with them and can’t receive an additional signing bonus.
I'm really hopeful we've kept our money free. No idea if we've spent big in Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico or wherever, but it definitely seems we've not done it in the DR.....
This seems like more recruiting than normal. We've got multiple looks at these guys in game action at this point. May take less for them to sign now? No idea. But, it seems very possible to me, since they've already received a bonus and there's a finite amount of money to be spent on the entirety of the class by MLB and in reality, most of that money has been committed already.
I'd love to get Maitan. Gutierrez would be my second choice, then the two pitchers, Rosario and Contreras. It'd be ridiculously nice if we could fit ANY (not thinking those 4)of the released prospects into our 2017-2018 poolfor 300,000 or under.
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.
