2016 Draft Signing Table

New, 217 comments
Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2016 draft now in the books, the focus now turns to getting the new draftees signed, and it's time to roll out the annual Signing Table. Per some suggestions last year, I've included the overall pick with the round for now, but will be paring it back to just the round to include minor league assignments instead once those start to become known.

The ranking is the average of three public sources: Baseball America (top 500), Perfect Game (top 500), and MLB.com (Jon Mayo and Jim Callis, top 200). It also shows how many lists on which the draftee was included, since the average will be biased upwards by non-inclusion on a list vs. being ranked too low for inclusion.

As usual, post any links to information on signings/signability and I'll do my best to keep the table promptly updated. Thanks for everyone who adds the links that make this work.

The 2016 signing deadline is Friday, July 15.

UPDATE 7/17: The Blue Jays signed 29 of the their 41 draft picks, spending $7,783,100 in reported bonuses (MLB.com reports a total of $7,871,100, leaving at least $88,000 unaccounted for). They exceeded their slot allocation by $97,200, triggering overage tax of $72,900. Minor league assignments have been updated as well.
