Interesting thoughts about Knight. Given where the Orioles are right now, they can take their time in developing him as a starter rather than looking to move him along quickly as a reliever. Even if the bullpen is his ultimate landing spot, it wouldn't hurt for them to give him a season or two out of the rotation.

Grenier signed for just under slot. Knight is left as the only top 10 pick they haven’t signed. They have also signed 17 of their top 20.

They have until Friday at 5 to get Knight and anyone else signed. Apparently the Os feel Knight will get signed.

Knight signed.  Looks like they ended up signing their first 19 picks, and 32 players in all.

Great job by the Os to spend all their money and get their guys signed.

Melewski:

On an assigned draft budget of nearly $9 million, O's spent all but 900 dollars on their 2018 top 10 rounds picks. Alloted 8,754,400 they spent 8,753,500. They also signed multiple picks in rounds 11-40 to the max allowed of $125,000 which is not included in top 10 pool.

So good job by the Orioles on getting their draft signed.  

 

Interesting that Melewski tries to frame their spending like IFA Pool. 

 

I'm not saying they even had anyone to spend it on, but they can actually spend up to 5% over the allotment without draft pick penalty.....so they didn't spend "all but $900"...they spent all but $438,620. 

 

You can spend more than 125k on a kid after the 10th round, use of the word max there is odd.  The first 125k you spend doesn't count against your draft pool.  You can spend 500k on a kid if you need to if you wanted to burn 375,000 of that 438,620.

 

What we should have mentioned is it looks (mlb.com) like the Orioles spent about 1.775M on those bonus totals after the 10th round ...including 12 guys they gave 125k to.  That's money above the Draft allotment.

 

Total draft spending was a little over 10.5M.
