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.

Samardzija will be at All-star game in NL jersey, will hang out in AL dugout, cannot pitch in game.
d.beeler throwing 85-87mph cheese.

future Cub tweet:
CBS story says to DL with right elbow inflammation fwiw...
Cubbery is giving the Cubs good health this year just to snatch it away when the team aims to be competitive again. Pure, unadulterated optimism. Seriously though, in a year when so many players are getting injured around the league, the Cubs have been relatively unscathed by the injury bug.
Tanaka, MRI right pitching shoulder.
Has Battleship Cubbery made a 180 degree course change?
the good: Kane and Toews sign 8-year extensions
the bad (sort of): Anthony going back to Knicks, maybe Bulls can pull of Kevin Love trade if they want any chance
Nolan Ryan's pen name might be Dave Cameron
Whoah!!! That's heavy duty...
Tanaka headed for MRI, unknown what part of arm yet.
...baseball gods be cruel

what a peach.
I have a theory that people must have a certain number of things in their "no big deal" bucket, a certain number in their "kind of a big deal" bucket, and a certain number of things in their "big friggin deal" bucket. And no matter what's going on, regardless of how big of a deal everything is, they will fill these buckets with their preferred percentages of complaints.
I'd just like to non-judgmentally draw attention to you're grammar there...
