No idea. Unsure what suggested slot is. Couple that with Sale originally slated to go near the top 5, and he might be expecting more money. Jeff might have some insight once he reads this though.

Slot for the 13th pick last year was estimated at $1.656m. The recommendations are reportedly higher this year but players have been generally signing for less than last year.

The closest pick to #13 that has signed is Jake Skole at #15. He got $1,557,000.

Like you say though he could be looking for top 5 money (>$2.5m), or at least something in the $2m range.

Who knows though, I haven't read anything on the negotiations or Sale's bonus demand.

I hope they get Joseph Terry, Grimes, MacDonal and Wilkens signed. And this draft will be a complete bust unless Ozney Guillen in signed!!!

Oh, and Levi Schlick....just because it would be a great name to have on the team.

I could care less if #22 signs. It isn't worth the Twitter barrage of how cheap we are that we didn't give him 7 figures (don't the decimals and the point count?!?).

I'll guess Sale gets between $1.65 and $1.75 million.

Excellent. I wonder when he's going to start throwing - will he take a little break?

Woah.

Supposedly a reason the terms were so agreeable was that the Sox agreed to give a chance for Sale to join the bullpen this year. Chris will report to W-S with hopes of being promoted to Charlotte by July and to Chicago in August. He will than return to starting in the AFL with a chance to break camp with the Sox next year as a SP.

Whaaaaa?

He sounds promising, but this promising? I'm not sure about that route.

After reading the article... beginning his pro career in WS seems right, but they seems to move him rather quickly. The article suggests he'll bypass Birmingham, spend a few weeks in Charlotte and see the pen by August. It just seems so risky, but exciting to watch.

Edit: Plus, unless they move a pitcher, is he supposed to leap frog Dan Hudson for next season?

The thing about his quick leap is a bit worrisome, but considering the fact that his stuff and command made him one of the most pro ready pitchers in the draft, it isn't too terribly disconcerting for me.
