So Lonnie White Jr. is the only one of the big 4 left. Don't know if there is enough money left for him, but he was probably the least likely to bypass his college football offer.

The Pirates went $2,129,300 over-slot, thanks to the savings on the under-slot signings of No. 1 overall pick Henry Davis – which saved $1,915,300 – sixth-rounder Mike Jarvis, which saved $307,900. That leaves the Pirates $1,521,500 remaining from their $14,394,000 draft pool to sign their Competitive Balance B round pick, Malvern Prep outfielder Lonnie White Jr., and their fourth-rounder, Vermont prep right-hander Owen Kellington. The slot value for White at the No. 64 pick is $1,050,300 and for Kellington at No. 102 is $571,400.

Thanks for sharing. Can someone tell me if I am understanding the concept correctly. The Pirates have 1.5 million left to sign Lonnie White Jr and Owen Kellington. (I believe if the Pirates go over 5% of their slot money they are penalized a #1 pick and money, so they will not do this.) If they go over by 5% or less they are only penalized 75% of what they go over.) If my Math is correct, the Pirates can go over by roughly $700K and will only be penalized $500k. Therefore the way I see it the Pirates can actually give bonuses to a total of 2.2 million to the 2 players.
