Sweet, thanks for the updates. Didn't really doubt Perkins much. Didn't know about Dulin and a Vabdy commitment. I would've been a lot less positive about him signing had I know that earlier.

Guess we felt obligated to move Renda a few days ago. Were restocking the system with 5'8 2b in Schrock and Dulin.

@jimcallisMLB: 6th-rder Matthew Crownover, @Nationals agree on $160k ($70,400 under slot). Clemson finesse LHP, ACC pitcher of year. @MLBDraft

With Crownover's $70,400 under slot and 10th rounder Guilbeau's 25k bonus ($124,700 under slot), the Nats currently have $195,100 to work with. And that's only from 2 draftees signing. We don't know how much over slot Dulin's bonus is, but there should be enough savings from top 10 round picks to give other 11-40 rounders over slot deals.

Is it possible to free up enough money to sign away one of Mack Lemieux or Nick Sprengel from their college commitment? Getting a projectable pitching prospect in the later rounds would be nice. None of first ten picks look like they'll command over slot bonuses, and there are 3 seniors in the first 10 picks who haven't signed yet.

Quote
Sprengel is unsure if he will sign with the Nationals or go to University of San Diego. If he sticks with the college plan, that’s fine with him.

“The coaches are awesome and the location is great,” Sprengel said. “It’s a good school and it should be a lot of fun.”

If I were to pick, I'd prefer Sprengel. I never really considered him a signal option. He's more of a pitch ability guy than a project able one, but he's a lefty than can break 90 at 18. That's a good foundation to start with, but he's pretty polished for an HS kid as well. If I had to guess, I think he's more of a 7-9 round talent, maybe earlier if he makes it known he wants to sign. I figured with a San Diego commitment and falling so low, no chance he signs. If we can push the offer up around 300k, maybe it's possible. But, if that's all it was going to take, you'd think he would've been popped a lot earlier. He's been compared to Kyle Twomey, because they went to the same HS. Twomey was a 3rd rounder out of hs but went to USC and didn't develop as expected. I think Twomey had a bit more project ability to him than Sprengel, but Ive read Sprengel is more advanced.

My money would still be on him not signing but there's more hope than I originally thought it looks like.

David Kerian has signed for $130,100 under slot, Grant Borne for 27,800 under slot, and Taylor Hearn for 32,600 under.

The current total as of 5 of the top 10 round players signed is $385,600 under slot.

Mariano Jr. has signed for slot ($410,700).

Blake Perkins has signed for 800k, $93,100 under slot.

Running total: $478,700 under slot.

That's 7 of the top 10, and of the remaining 3, Stevenson was an over draft, so it's likely he signs for under slot, Wiseman looks like he'd sign for slot, and Glover is a senior sign. If Stevenson signs for 100-200k under slot and Glover accounts for another 120k, that could give the Nats $700,000-$800,000 to work with for rounds 11-40.

Do we know what Dulin signed for? Figured he and Rash would eat into that too.

Bunting in the first inning!?! There isn't a junk punch big enough for the turd that called for it.

It runs rampant in college baseball, especially among the teams that have elite pitching where they only need a couple of runs and they'll probably win.

They've turned out a few major leaguers, won the CWS last year and are in the final this year.  So don't think anyone can say he is a bad manager. Also that new park in Omaha is almost HR proof so like you said they are playing small ball.

Not anymore. They've had a huge uptick in HRs this year, that's not an excuse anymore. "Small-ball" has infected all of college baseball, not just Vandy. Just because they're the best team at executing a bad system doesn't make it good idea.

Interesting that 8th round RP Koda Glover went 34k over slot to sign.

Wasn't he a senior?

Anyway, Stevenson has signed for $750k, so that's another $300k to work with. About $750k under slot total over the first ten rounds.

He was listed as one by mlb.com but looking around, he's only a junior. Two years at a JuCo and one at OK State. No mention of a redshirt. Not sure what caused the confusion.

What are the dynamics that lead to over and under slot signings?

Seniors have less leverage, high school commits have more, beyond that it's a question of how much the team wants a kid to sign vs how much a kid wants to play pro ball
