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

Draft:

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.

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

Lose 1st and 2nd round picks the next year if they exceed "pool" by 10-15 percent

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."
