Very good chance spending will be over $10 million.

At this point I'm guessing MLB is releasing them from low to high $$$. Since they are just hitting around the $2mil mark, guessing this is bigger than everyone projected.

If Delmonico is getting huge money, was this the kid to go crazy over slot? Jordan and Co. must be really high on the kid.

He is a real talent. If not for injuries, he was a legit 1st or supplemental talent. He has to improve, but I think a healthy Nick Delmonico is a solid one.

I think Esposito, with consistency at the plate, is a top 20 prospect. I think he hits and his fielding is simply top notch.

Bundy is still the creme of the crop and never seen a better prep pitcher in my years of being in baseball.

Correct. I suspect Delmonico's number will be released around 11:50 or so.

Would have been a first round pick if not for injury.

I hope your right on Delmonico. I like Esposito as well. These guys, plus Bundy, could make this draft pretty special.

It is not a question of being write or wrong as your projections are based on talent and timeline. It still does not factor heart and dedication. If you have an abundance of it to go with a grain of talent, you will be a good player. If you have those factors with a good deal of talent, you can become a great ballplayer.

Poor choice of words on my part. I meant I hope the O's are right to target this kid for the big money over slot deal versus some of the other potential targets. Thanks for all the info throughout the draft process.

Bundy did not get the largest bonus, but more guaranteed in the contract with max value well north of Matt Wieters money of $6 million

Don on Twitter. Exact numbers coming soon.
