Many of the rules surrounding the MLB Draft have changed with teams now having set limits at what they can spend on their draft picks. According to Baseball America, the Atlanta Braves will have just over $4 million dollars to divide up among 10 draft picks. The article describes the new rules:
The numbers build off the bonus set for the No. 1 pick, which is $7.2 million this year. Every pick from 2-338 is expressed as a percentage of the No. 1 pick, down to $125,000 for the final picks of the 10th round. A team's total budget for the first 10 rounds is the sum of the numbers for all of its picks, so teams that have extra picks and early picks have more money to spend. The Twins have the highest budget this year, with the second overall pick as well as extra picks.
Teams however aren't locked into their prescribed amounts for individual selections. With the No. 21 pick in the draft Atlanta projects to pay that player selected a slot bonus of just over $1.8 million. The Braves could elect to give him $2 million but would have to make up the difference through the rest of their picks. They can't go over the budgeted amount of $4.03 million without penalties.
