Reese Olson signs with the Brewers. $440k signing bonus. That doesn’t seem to bode well for signing Turang.



Why not? we need Turang's bonus pool plus excess allowance to allow us to sign other players. Without Turang, aren't we now looking at forfeiting draft picks?

Didn’t we save almost 700k from all the underslot deals? If we don’t sign Turang, then we’d just lose his slot, no?

I didn’t necessarily agree that Cabell’s FSU commitment meant he wasn’t signing, just that he didn’t like his leverage as the deadline approached. Olson’s signing probably does put the nail in my hopes of getting Cabell though; but then again, I had given up hope on Blake Lillis and LG Castillo but the Brewers got those deals done so I guess I’ll have to wait it out. Hopefully they can get Daniel Davis done.

12th-rder Korry Howell signs w/@Brewers for $210k ($85k counts vs. bonus pool). Kirkwood (Iowa) CC, well above-average speed & athleticism, Iowa recruit. @MLBDraft

The Brewers would lose the full slot value of the 21st overall pick ($3,013,600) plus the 5% overage they are allowed before hitting a draft pick penalty, which is up to an additional $150,680.

Might very well be the opposite - the Brewers know exactly what they have left to work with.

Caball's instagram story shows him working out at FSU. Probably safe to now assume he isn't signing since he's already on campus.

Yeah, I assume that they wouldn't sign Olsen yet if there were even a small chance that it would affect their ability to sign Turang. Either they are close and know they won't need that money, or they are punting and moving to use their remaining pool minus Turang's slot as effectively as possible. We'll know soon...

I hope it’s the former, but I have a bad feeling that it’s the latter.

Apparently my Cape Cod visit didn't sway him towards the Brewers. Draft-eligible sophomore, so much leverage.

Love the enthusiasm, but as a longtime follower of the forums, you might realize the need for "anything new?" posts is somewhat unnecessary. If there was "anything new", someone would present it here in short order [wink].

That's the guy ines really hoping they'd sign. Great arm.

I figured it was going to be a tough one.

Does anybody on here ever remember so many ups not getting signed? Does this happen to other teams as well? I mean we signed only half our drafted players. Does the international signings play into this?

Last year was similar. Part of the new strategy of quality over quantity. Draft younger, higher ceiling players who are harder signs. Better to sign a few higher ceiling players over many depth guys.

Yep. 19 unsigned picks (where we're at currently) would easily be the most since the draft went to 40 rounds.
