THE BONUS POOL EXPLAINED

Under the MLB Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), each team receives an allotted bonus pool equal to the sum of the slot values of that club's selections in the first ten rounds of the annual First-Year Player Draft. The more picks a team has in the first ten rounds, and the earlier the picks are in those rounds, the larger the bonus pool total.


The signing bonuses for a team's selections in the first ten rounds, plus any bonus greater than $100,000 for a player taken after the first ten rounds, will apply toward the bonus pool total. If a player selected in the first ten rounds does not sign, the associated slot value is removed from the team’s bonus pool total.


* A team that spends between 0 and 5 percent over its allotted pool total will receive a 75 percent penalty on the overage.

* A team that spends between 5 and 10 percent over its allotted pool total will receive a 75 percent penalty on the overage and the loss of a first round pick in the next succeeding draft.

* A team that spends between 10 and 15 percent over its allotted pool total will receive a 100 percent penalty on the overage and the loss of a first and second round pick in the next succeeding draft.

* A team that spends 15 percent or more over its allotted pool total will receive a 100 percent penalty on the overage and the loss of first round picks in the next two succeeding drafts.

* A team that exceeds its allotted pool total, but does not possess the draft picks subject to forfeiture as a result of being penalized in a prior year, will forfeit the designated draft picks in the next draft in which it possesses the relevant picks.
