Default Draft/International CBA Changes

Changes so far are a doozy. Pretty ****ty overall for small market teams. Especially those that realize the need to invest in the draft and to build from within.


International:

International bonuses undergoing drastic overhaul. Among the biggest: Starting in 2013-14, teams can trade $ from their international pool.

For example: Worst team in baseball gets $5M to spend internationally. If team doesn't want to spend it all, it can trade $ to another team.

Teams can trade for only 50% more than their international spending cap. So if a team has a $2.5M cap, most it can trade for is $1.25M.

Every team will have $2.9M to spend in international bonus money this season. Money is not tradeable this year.

Sources: Cubans under 23 years old and with less than three years in pro ball will be considered "amateurs" and count against int'l bonus $.

In other words, players like Yoenis Cespedes are safe. Had Aroldis Chapman defected now, however, he would have received way less than $30M.

Overall money to be spent in draft and int'l FA in line with 2010 figures. CBA attempts to give advantage to bad teams via larger pools.

Worst teams, for example, will receive ~$5M in int'l $. Best teams will get ~$1.8M. Not sure on exact figures for draft, but similar %.

Teams with the worst records get the most money to sign international players. Other teams can exceed limits, but lose rights in future yrs

International signing limits will go into effect next winter, so won't limit Cespedes bonus

International signing limits will not affect the posting system for players from Japan

Draft:


JeffPassan Jeff Passan
Draft tax is harsh: Teams that go more than 5% over slot get a 75% tax. From 5-10% over, a 75% tax and loss of 1st-round pick the next year.

JeffPassan Jeff Passan
More draft tax: Go 10-15% over, 100% tax and loss of 1st- and 2nd-round picks. 15% and higher is 100% tax and loss of two first-round picks.

What MLB wanted more than anything with draft is players to get selected in order of talent. MLB believes this system will force that.

Draft signing deadline moves from Aug. 15 to between July 12 and 18.

Teams will lose a draft pick if they exceed their "draft pool" by even 5 percent
13 minutes ago Favorite Retweet Reply


DKnobler DKnobler
Lose 1st and 2nd round picks the next year if they exceed "pool" by 10-15 percent
13 minutes ago Favorite Retweet Reply


DKnobler DKnobler
If you don't exceed your "draft pool" (basically slot), then you have a chance to be awarded the picks lost by teams that did exceed it

If a player signs after the 10th round for more than $100,000, the excess money will go against a team's draft pool.

Very interesting: There is a "competitive balance lottery" that awards lowest-revenue and smallest-market teams extra draft picks.
13 minutes ago Favorite Retweet Reply


JeffPassan Jeff Passan
There will be six draft picks immediately after the first round given out via lottery to teams with 10 lowest revenues, 10 smallest markets.

From an MLB/MLBPA release: "A club’s odds of winning the lottery will be based on its prior season’s winning percentage."

Still need time to digest. As a White Sox fan, the changes are rather beneficial. Teams like the Pirates and Royals are severely hurt. Supposedly the majority of the GMs hate the changes. The owners don't though.

This looks great for small market teams, top prospects won't be able to play the signability card and get skipped over for lesser players who will take less, only to wind up with a bigger spender who will pay their demands.

The majority of the small market teams have been the ones selecting those players that would be skipped. Pirates, Jays, Nationals, Royals have all been picking those hard signs and throwing money at them. That's why they've been at the top of bonus spending for a few years now. This merely helps teams that are cheap and unwilling to go over slot.

Conversely, I'm pleased that this is going to hurt teams like the Red Sox. Should also hurt the Cubs who just recently started unloading bags of money in the draft. Theo's Red Sox model which he was bringing to the Cubs is pretty ****ed.

The big question is if this will prevent amateur talent from coming into baseball. And the overwhelming sentiment from the industry is: Yes.

The teams that amateur rules affect most: Successful, low-revenue teams like Tampa Bay, which now have even less room for error than before.

By my calculations, TWENTY teams went 16% or more over slot this year, which would have triggered 100% tax & loss of two 1st-rders #mlbdraft

These changes bode pretty well for us since it puts more emphasis on the proper amount based on slot. International signing used to be a free for all, but now there is some regulation to it.

Quite right. This certainly helps the White Sox. I'll be happy in that regard.

These changes will also cause more of the prep talent to attend college. It essentially eliminates the leverage these players had in threats of going to school instead.

I like the draft signing deadline is moving up to July. That August 15th deadline was terrible.
