Indians sign ... everybody

9

Following on earlier rumors, Baseball America reports that the Indians have signed second-round pick Trey Haley for $1.1 million and 16th-round pick T.J. House for a way-way-over-slot $750,000. More detail on the players' situations is in this update from Hoynes. The Indians had only one of the first 75 picks yet are now poised to end up with five of the top 75 signing bonuses, after making several "flier" picks in the lower rounds and courting them aggressively. The Indians had already gone far over slot earlier this week to sign three other picks: Bryce Stowell (22nd round, 725K), Zach Putnam (fifth round, 600K) and Tim Fedroff (seventh round, 725K). Haley was picked #76 overall, at the end of the second round, but received a larger bonus than any of the picks in the supplemental first round, #31 to #46 overall, and the same as #29 overall Lonnie Chisenhall. The other four — House, Fedroff, Stowell and Putnam — were each paid a bonus commensurate with a second-round pick. The Indians have now signed all of their top 16 picks, plus seven of their next ten picks, paying an estimated $6.5 million in signing bonuses, with the six mentioned above receiving $4.9 million out of that total.
