MLB Draft Hard Slotting Values

New, 6 comments

MLB is currently negotiating their new collective bargaining agreement and one of the bigger issues is a hard slotting system in baseball. This means that a player will recieve a predetermined amount depending on where he is drafted. Currently the MLB offers a suggested slot for each pick but they want to lock this into a hard slot.

The owners want to keep their investment as low as they can, for obvious reasons.

What I did was assigned values based on percentages of success for draft picks. I sorted them from highest to lowest and put them side by side with the actual bonuses signed by players this year, sorted from highest to lowest.
