2014 MLB Draft: Signing Bonus Central

Bud being Bud. - Rich Schultz

Signing Bonus updates for the first 5 rounds of the 2014 MLB Draft.

News of the top selections in the 2014 draft signing their first professional contracts begins to trickle in once the dust settles. Many recent draftee will sign quickly, especially if their amateur careers have already been completed. Some wait due to contract negotiations or their amateur teams have not finished their seasons. Since the news of these signings doesn't come all at once, I wanted to create an article that will be continuously edited when new players sign their names on the dotted line. Bonus information will be updated daily, and players with a "?" under the Bonus column have signed but terms of the amount has yet to be disclosed. All bonus amounts were obtained through MLBTradeRumorsBaseball America, and SBNation's own MLBDailyDish.

High school player have a yellow background, players from four year colleges are in green, and players who attended a junior college or community college are in blue.

As of Friday, June 27 there are still 10 first round or supplemental first round picks yet to ink a contract. Out of the first five rounds there are a total of 22 players who have not signed with one player making it known he will go to college (Trevor Megill, 3rd RD, STL).

With that said, I bring to you, the faithful Minor League Ball reader and new fans alike, a complete track record of all 2014 draft signings for players in the first five rounds.

For those that prefer this in the Google Doc format, it can be found here (it will open a new window).
