Total bonus pool for rounds 1-10: $8,526,000

Signing bonus total for rounds 1-10: $8,609,600

The math-enabled among you will note that is an overage of $83,600. The Mariners won’t be penalized draft picks for going over budget, as every team is permitted to go slightly over with a financial penalty of 75% on the overage provided they stay under a 5% overage. (Teams are only penalized a first-round draft pick if they go 5% or more over, and higher overages have progressive penalties. Since the current draft bonus rules were enacted in 2012, no team has gone over their draft pool by 5% or more.) That means the Mariners can go up to about $426,000 over their pool without losing a draft pick, although they are “taxed” by MLB on however much over they go.

For rounds 11-20, the standard slot bonus is $125,000. Any bonus above that counts against the bonus pool for rounds 1-10.

Free Agent signings:

Now that the Draft has ended, the Mariners can sign any eligible undrafted player for a maximum of $20,000.

LHP Peyton Alford (Virginia Tech)

A senior sign who began his career at Walters State CC, Alford struck out 91 batters in 68 innings in 2021; he pitched in 12 games in the Cape Cod League in 2019 and struck out 23 batters in 27.1 innings. He also participated in the MLB Draft League this summer, posting spin rates on his fastball of 2500+.

OF Randy Bednar (Maryland)

Another senior sign and the 2021 Terps team captain, Bednar was one of the few players who got off to a white-hot start in the shortened 2020 season, although he was able to continue that improvement as a senior after getting off to a slower start in his college career. Bednar can really hit, with ham hock-sized forearms, and profiles as a Ty France-like top-of-the-order bat with thump, although with more defensive versatility in the outfield and some good speed.

RHP JP Williams (Nova Southeastern)

Williams is another player who participated in the MLB Draft League, where he led the league during the first half with a 0.87 ERA and a 30:8 K:BB ratio. He joins another Nova Southeastern alum, C Jake Anchía, in the Mariners system.
