New, 4 comments

We are 11 days removed from the end of the 2016 MLB First Year Player Draft, and the agreements keep rolling in. I'm here to let you know how your team is doing, starting with the American League.

All this information can be found in our 2016 MLB Draft Signings Tracker via Google Sheets. This is the motherload of draft information with player and signing info and slot implications on each player in the top 10 rounds. It is updated each day to reflect the most recent signings. Remember to check out each tab as we also have all players in rounds 6-10 who signed for $100,000 more or $100,000 less than their slot recommendation, and also players in rounds 11-40 who signed for at least $200,000.

Each team is color coded depending on what level of education each respective player has completed prior to being drafted. Players with a yellow background are high school players. A light blue background means junior college, green is a sophomore or junior at a four year college, orange is college seniors, and red means the player was a fifth year senior. You can find what round each player was selected in, as well as their overall pick number, where they went to school, how much over or under the slot recommendation they signed for, and any additional notes for each pick such as supplemental picks or compensation picks.
