Draft : : Story

There has been very little in the way of detail shared by Major League Baseball about the dollar specifics of the draft slots and team draft budgets in the new CBA. This has probably contributed to the overall sense of confusion about the new rules, especially as it pertains to the round budget slot vs. team budget pool concept that is integral to the new draft rules.

Perfect Game has learned that the Commissioner’s Office has privately circulated the budget/slot numbers for the first 10 picks in the 2012 draft. They are as follows:

1.  Houston Astros -- $7.2M
2.  Minnesota Twins --  $6.2M
