According to Spotrac it looks like we have signed 7 of our top 10 picks. Most of the extra 340k via the 5% above slot max was spent on our 6th round pick Rajcic. However, 2nd rounder Mautz did sign under slot by $146k. 5th, 9th and 10th rounders and beyond picks have not been signed.
The Cards tweeted themselves that they have agreed to terms with Tanner Jacobson.July 24, 2022 at 8:28 pm #192440slidinleftyParticipantPaid - Annual
Why was it necessary to spend money over slot on Rajcic? His offerings are pretty average at best? Why not take a run at the high school kid?July 24, 2022 at 8:32 pm #192441
According to Brian, Scott signed. Does that bring the total to 9 of 20? Scott looks like a good pick. Speed, defense, and maybe power. As long as he doesn’t start out like Fletcher.July 24, 2022 at 9:19 pm #192456
Eight picks are signed – rounds 1 through 7 plus 10th. The Roster Matrix remains a good tool to stay up to date.
Just a guess, but because Rajcic was a draft-eligible sophomore, he had two more years of eligibility to buy out.July 24, 2022 at 9:21 pm #192457July 24, 2022 at 9:22 pm #192458
Thanks, BHC, I missed that one. Carlos Collazo is a credible source. So, C27, you are right. It is 9 of 20.
P.S. There is often a time delay between when the player comes to terms and when the team makes their announcement. All deals are contingent on the player passing all of his tests.July 24, 2022 at 9:37 pm #192461
I hope we have enough to sign our high school draftee in the 20th round.July 24, 2022 at 11:24 pm #192465
BA’s draft tracker shows the Cardinals have everyone signed except their 20th round guy.
That leaves $393,895 remaining in pool money. That amount can be added to the $125,000 that doesn’t count against pool money for a grand total of $518,895. It might be enough but I’m not sure.

How do you pronounce our first rounders name? Looks like Hyop, but I believe that is incorrect.July 25, 2022 at 9:15 am #192488
I got my math wrong. Its actually only a grand total of $368K.
Its pronounced with a strong J sound and rhymes with Jerky.July 25, 2022 at 9:46 am #192495
The official pronunciation is on his player page here at TCN, on the team called “Drafted Players Signed”.July 25, 2022 at 9:50 am #192496
BHC, does BA note the signing bonuses received by the 11th-19th rounders? If not, some of them could be over $125K, which would eat into the surplus. In fact, we don’t know all the bonuses of the 1st through 10th rounders yet, do we? Stiil a number of open questions that will be answered in the next week.July 25, 2022 at 10:14 am #192499
The team announcements are catching up, likely as physicals are passed.
We have agreed to terms with the following draft picks:
RHP Cade Winquest (8th Round)
SS Michael Curialle (12th Round)
RHP Chandler Arnold (13th Round)
RHP DJ Carpenter (14th Round)

Here’s what it looks like laid out in a spreadsheet:
Not sure $368K ($243K + $125K) is going to be enough to sign 20th round draft pick Gavin Van Kempen. @kyler416 @stlfanbc7 @dgoold @RobRains @jmjones @katiejwoo @JohnDenton555 pic.twitter.com/iqr2Rsar3b

Help me understand the bonus pool for the picks 11-20. I understand that they can be up to $125k each, and the overage goes against the total bonus pool. What I am not sure of is if some of those bottom 10 players take less than the $125k, does that savings negate any overages by other bottom 10 picks? ie. the Cards give 3 players over the $125k that totals $150k but we save $200k from all the other players, will it balance out and not have any effect on the total bonus pool?July 25, 2022 at 11:03 am #192509
The $125K for players 11-20 is not counted in the bonus pool at all. It only counts when teams go over that amount. Anything below $125K is just teams saving money on their end and it has no effect on the pool money.July 25, 2022 at 11:03 am #192510
64, no, there can be no pool savings from rounds 11-20, just potential overages.
BHC, thanks for sharing the signing amounts.July 25, 2022 at 11:11 am #192512cardsfan64ParticipantFree
Thanks, all! I see the answer on the chart that was posted when I was typing my question. The overages in rounds 11-20 are counted individually and have no reflection on savings by other players in those rounds. Thanks for your posts, especially the chart that makes it very clear!July 25, 2022 at 11:43 am #192519
According this site the Cards have also signed Undrafted Free Agent RJ Yeager,SS, Mississippi State.July 25, 2022 at 6:36 pm #192553bccranParticipant
RJ Yeager – undrafted FA infielder from Mississippi State has signed with the Cardinals.
Nice looking line –
18 Home runs
Only Ked 35 times in 202 ABs
6’3″, 200 lbs.
Now we’re cookin’. That’s a line we can get excited about
Wonder why he wasn’t drafted.July 25, 2022 at 8:09 pm #192560
Wonder why he wasn’t drafted.
Probably stems from his age. He’s going on 24-years old.July 27, 2022 at 2:02 pm #192751
I’m guessing our 20th round pick isn’t signing. I thought 380k might have been enough. There can’t be any negotiating left since it is a fixed maximium amount.July 28, 2022 at 12:31 am #192804
I believe that the pitchers will be handled with kit gloves, but the position players drafted will, at some point be tested against FCL, or Palm Beach pitching. This would give less playing time to existing prospects on either of those rosters.July 28, 2022 at 12:47 am #192808858booyahParticipantFree

Well take into consideration that some of these guys in college got COVID years. Also he would’ve gotten drafted had it been a 30 round draft. Which is no longer. He thought he was going on get a call around 8-10th round.
