    Mayer, by the way, is wearing a No. 10 Red Sox jersey for the signing. Lots of hugs and photos. Text from a team official: "I mean, we aren't exactly being subtle about this."

    I'm told the Red Sox and Marcelo Mayer agreed on a contract at slot, which is -- I believe -- a little more than $6.6 million


    Hubba wuh?

    That's basically slot?

    If they don't have to go over slot for him, they are going to sign everyone they want to.

    Per MLB source, Mayer is signing for slot recommendation for No 4 overall pick.

    Marcelo Mayer just hit one into the Red Sox bullpen. So there’s that.

    What’s this slot contract thing?

    Teams only get a set amount of money to sign their draftees. The first few rounds have picks that are given a slot value. The first overall pick gives the team like 8.5M towards their slot. The Sox had 6.6M for the 4th overall pick. If a player wants over slot, you have less money to give the other picks. If you sign a guy under slot, you have more money to spend on other picks. Some guys fall because they have a high $ demand. Some guys go earlier because they’ll take under slot.

    For example, Jud Fabian in the 2nd round probably wants over slot because he was projected to go in the first round. Players are more likely to go back to school after being picked so they do have some leverage.

    Also, if you go over you pay a 100% tax up to 5%. You can count on teams like the Sox paying the tax and throwing the extra money around. In a year like this, that's an extra $576,780 to play with. After that 5% you start losing first-round draft picks, without looking it up I don't think any team has gone past 5%.

    If you fail to sign a pick in the top rounds you receive the next pick down the following year. So, for example; if the Sox can't sign Judd Fabian they will receive the #41 pick in next year's draft. The only caveat here is you have to offer the player at least 75% of the slot value.

    I think the chances of the Sox signing Green just went up, but I still think it's more likely they can't sign him. Odds are a few of these guys left unsigned are going over slot and Fabian might take around $500-$700K of what's leftover. Green is going to want 1st round money to turn pro (reportedly). But I think they at least sign everyone else if that happens. 19/20.

    FO is saying they'll sign 13-14, so maybe they do intend on going over way over slot for Green. IDK. I think it's more likely they sign 18-19 and don't get Green.
