1. If an ARTICLE XX-B MLB FREE-AGENT signs a minor league contract at least ten days prior to MLB Opening Day, and then is either not released by 12 PM (Eastern) on the 5th day prior to MLB Opening Day or added to an MLB Active List (25-man roster) or MLB Disabled List by 3 PM (Eastern) on MLB Opening Day, the player automatically receives a $100,000 retention bonus, and the player can unilaterally opt-out of the minor league contract on June 1st if he has not been added to an MLB Active List (25-man roster) or an MLB Disabled List by that date.
2. A minor league player eligible to be an ARTICLE XX-D FREE-AGENT who accepts an Outright Assignment and defers free-agency until the end of the season is not eligible to be a free-agent if the player is added back to an MLB 40-man roster by the end of the MLB regular season. If the player is not added back to a 40-man roster by the end of the MLB regular season, the player can file for free-agency beginning on the day after the conclusion of the MLB regular season up through October 15th.
2. A minor league player eligible to be an MLB RULE 55 FREE-AGENT is not eligible to be a FA if the player is added to his club’s 40-man roster by 5 PM (Eastern) on the 5th day following the conclusion of the World Series.
Cubs have $8,352,200 in draft pool money (and if they don't mind paying a a 75% tax on $417,600, they can go up to $8,769,810).
Players in bold have allegedly signed. Anyone after the 10th round signed for over $100K counts against their draft money as well.
If the player has yet to sign or there's no media report on the bonus, the third column is the recommened slot money.
Currently the Cubs have paid $8,754,000 out and have $15,810 of their draft pool money left before having to worry about losing draft picks.

Save Castro for the Stanton trade, then sign Price after the 2015 season.
That would basically mean trading Castro.
A lot of musical chairs going on in those last few comments.
I don't get the impression that the Cub brass enjoys moving shortstops and 3Bs to other positions.
What they really love is trades, preferably blockbusters.
If you haven't seen the Baez blast yet. He absolutely punishes this:
That pitch deserved to be punished.
Damn it, you stole my Geo joke!
~sad horn~ for phil
LeBron is brilliant.
Comes home to younger version of Heat, only bad thing is home is Cleveland.
makes sense, still Irving, Love, James is ridiculous...just needs Phil Jackson
The rumor is Wiggins for Love
probably true....if that's the case I would withdraw the offer to 'Melo if I was the Bulls...seriously what would be the point. Love, James, Irving, Wiggins on Cleveland is a better core than the Heat had...don't even bother. Although I guess they could trade Wiggins for Love, not up to speed on the NBA trade mechanics at the moment.
who are they going to trade for Price?
guessing Alcantara at 2B or CF, Castro SS, Rizzo 1B, Castillo C, Bryant 3B, and free agents/scrubs at the other 3 with Baez starting the season in Iowa and ready to jump in at 2B, Russell and Soler should be looming next year as well depending on how the rest of AA in 2014 goes.
Really?? C'mon melo!
Love is going to Cleveland too.
No way Bryant is in cf. But you could just switch Ruggiano to cf, Bryant to rf, etc. sure would be a lot more fun to watch!!!! I think Alcantara might be in OF ...
2015 opening day lineup:
Alcatara 2B, Ruggiano RF, Rizzo 1B, Castro SS, Bryant CF, Baez 3B, Castillo C, Coughlan LF, Price P
I don't know how much of this is genuine and how much is written by a PR person, but either way he seems to have handled this wisely.
