Royals Picks and Draft Bonus Amounts
The Royals locked up the 8th pick in the draft this year with their poor season. That pick is locked in and can’t be lost due to compensation if the Royals pull off a miracle and sign one of the biggest FA available to them. Instead the Royals would lose their 2nd round selection which is valued at 1.136M.
Looking at where the Royals pick currently are compared to what the slot or players signed for Kansas City would have approximately 7.8M to spend on the draft. That number will likely go up as each slot will be more valuable with less overall picks due to less compensation picks and a small increase at each pick. I would expect the Royals slot to come in around the 8-9M range but that is just a guess at this point.
