NOTE: Player not eligible for selection if added to MLB 40-man roster by 11/20. Also, Juan Carlos Paniagua signed his first contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks as "Juan Callado" on 5-8-2009 and pitched for the DSL Diamondbacks in the Dominican Summer League in 2009-10, but the contract was "pending" for almost two years and was never officially approved by MLB. The contract was eventually rejected by MLB due to "fraudulent paperwork" and Paniagua (Callado) was suspended for one year and then was declared a free-agent. He signed with the New York Yankees in March 2011 but then was suspended again and that contract was rejected, too, because his birth certificate could not be verified. Paniagua was cleared by MLB in 2012 and he signed with the Cubs on 7-9-2012. Therefore, Paniagua could be eligible for selection in the Rule 5 Draft for the first time in December 2013, since 2009 was his "first season" on the field and he was 18 on the June 5th immediately preceding the signing of his first contract, or he might not be eligible for selection in the Rule 5 Draft for the first time until December 2015, if 2012 is considered Paniagua's "first season" for Rule 5 eligibility purposes.
Cubs have $10,556,500 in draft pool money (and if they don't mind paying a a 75% tax on $527,825, they can go up to $11,084,325).
Players in bold have allegedly signed. Anyone after the 10th round signed for over $100K counts against their draft money.
If the player has yet to sign or there's no media report on the bonus, the third column is the recommened slot money.
For a good rumor thread on the signings, check out the Pro Sports Daily Forum.

|4||Skulina||$800K/ +$323K over|
|9||Burks||$170K/ +$21.1K over|
|12||Clifton||"3rd round money"|

Reyburn's been terrible all night. What an asshat.
EPIC cubbery in the bottom 7th...holy crap...wow.
swaimy's busy trying to get tossed...
he gets his wish.
w.castillo picks up his 8th walk of the season tonight...
it's his 7th walk since May 23rd.
I would be doing the same.....in the stands. St. Louis is swampy.
10 pitches in and s.miller is POURING sweat...he looks like a glazed doughnut.
tarp off the field...
"Carrie Muskat @CarrieMuskat
#Cubs vs #STLCards hope to start at 8 pm CT"
wow...a desipio article that doesn't turn into frat boy chest bumping or a series of profanities before 3-4 paragraphs end...someone's going to get fired.
This morning I got wind of a new Al Yellon article so poorly thought out, so unreasonably daffy and so incompetent that I cursed the Twitter Gods for suspending my account because I wanted to share some good old Steve Stone motherboy flesh with the world. http://www.desipio.com/?p=4452
rain delay...tarp on field...not heavy, but they're not going to be playing baseball for 30-60 minutes, minimum.
I managed to read it all. I'll summarize: "I want the Cubs to win".
Dude is really going out on a limb.
BA says Cubs are going after OF Eloy Jimenez out of the Dominican
and MLB.com article says Cubs are 1 of 7 teams with serious interest in RHP Miguel Gonzalez out of Cuba
Like base coaches, they'll probably end up with helmets on
With minor league all-star games this week, expect a slew of prospect promotions very soon.
