Mets 2015 Draft Results

Players have until Friday, July 17th to sign. Picks in the first 10 rounds in the draft are assigned pool values. The total pool value of the Mets' 9 picks from the 2015 Draft's first 10 rounds is $3,587,800. If the Mets sign all of these first 9 picks, that total represents the penalty-free money they would be able to spend. Any amount over that total would be taxed at a 75% rate. Any amount more than 5% over that total would result in the loss of future draft picks (this is a threshold that has not yet been breached by any club). Additionally, for all signings outside the first 10 rounds for more than $100,000, the overage counts against the pool total. Any unsigned picks from the first 10 rounds do not contribute their pick value to the Mets 2015 pool.

* For this chart, I am only counting official numbers in the bonus, pool, and difference totals.
* Pool allotment only counts pool amount for the first 10 rounds, so bonus contribution for overslot 11th+ rounders is just the overage.

Thanks to everyone who tweets, e-mails, etc to help me put this list together & keep it updated. Hat tips, especially, to @WexlerRules, who is an absolute must-follow this time of year, as he is routinely the first person in my twitter timeline to sniff out signings before they have been reported. Also thanks to @PSLToFlushing, @nymets945, @tobyhyde, @MitchNYM, @DanDotLewis, @RealKenDick, @JohnMackinAde, and obviously @jimcallisMLB, @JonathanMayo, and all the folks at @BaseballAmerica.
