MLB Draft 2015: Astros draft pick slot money

New, 78 comments

How will the Astros make it work to sign Daz?

Reid Compton-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros' bonus pool is the largest among major league teams in 2015 MLB draft, $17,289,200. Houston may use this bonus pool to sign their draft pick from the first 10 rounds of the draft. Any amount of money over $100,000 for players drafted in rounds 11-40 will count against the pool money for the first 10 rounds.

Houston reached the point after getting a compensation pick for failing to sign the first-overall in the 2014 MLB Brady Aiken, earning the fifth pick by posting the fourth-worst record in 2014, and the 37th pick from the Marlins as the Jarred Cosart trade.

The slot values are taken from Baseball America.
