The Dodgers have now signed 28 out of 40 picks from the 2014 MLB Draft after agreeing to terms with eighth-rounder Hunter Redman, 28th rounder Bill Bereszniewicz, 30th rounder Brant Whiting, and 33rd rounder Carson Baranik. Unfortunately, 19th rounder Gary Cornish has decided to not sign in favor of attending the University Of San Diego.
The signing of Redman completes the bonus pool draft class for the team, and even if he does end up getting slot (I’m not so sure he will), the team will end up under the penalty that costs them a draft pick for next year. However, they still may opt to go over slot on unsigned players taken in the later rounds, so we have to wait and see for what the penalty will eventually end up as.

Draft Bonus Pool Reminder
All money paid to picks in the first 10 rounds count toward the bonus pool of $4,947,700. Players selected from rounds 11-40 can be paid up to $100,000 without affecting the bonus pool, but whatever amount given over $100,000 counts against the bonus pool.
So what’s the penalty for going over?
Up to 4.999 percent over ($5,195,084) the team pays a 75 percent tax on the amount over. Up to 9.999 percent over ($5,442,469) the team pays the 75 percent tax on the amount over and loses next year’s first-round pick. Up to 14.999 percent over ($5,689,854) the team pays a 100 percent tax on the amount over and loses next year’s first-round and second-round picks. From 15 percent ($5,689,855) and up the team pays the 100 percent tax on the amount over and loses the first-round pick for the next two years.
So basically the Dodgers can use up to $5,195,084 on this year’s bonus pool draft picks without losing anything significant aside from money.
