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.

I don't think eJax is even trying. He just wants to go home with a brandy snifter and some video games. Maybe go fishing. Gardening.
Didn't he get called up?
Wonder what Arismendy makes of all this? "This guy gets paid $13MM per year to be the worst starting pitcher in baseball, and I can't get called up to play on this team?"
Took me a while to realize that wasn't a mistype. Awesome. That's one of my favorite nicknames now.
If you gave them away you got off cheap.
Edwin Jackson is terrible at baseball.
EJax came into the game with the worst ERA of 50 starting NL pitchers with enough innings to qualify (TWood is 46th!)
He is running away and hiding with the title. They were willing to cut ties with Veras -- how much longer will EJax plague us? This is an insult.
mike minor just hit a HR off ejax.
yeah, the wind is blowing out, but damn.
also, this game so far has been a shitty pitching exhibition for both sides.
Had tickets but gave away when I saw Edlose Jackson was pitching.
Haha no shit!!
Hopefully MRs. Barney has some sort of college degree or profession.
If Cavs don't get Love, could be interesting. Doubts on Rose being Rose again though.
Cubs brass may have made a little problem for themselves bringing AA up ... He's just tearing it up. If they wanted to send him back down it may get tricky.
With Rose coming back and adding Gasol, McDermott, and Mirotic this has to be the most talented and deepest roster the Bulls have had during Thibodeau's tenure. I'm hoping Thibs can get in touch with his inner Popovich and ease back the minutes, particularly on Rose, Gasol, and Noah. A lot of new offensive talent, that I hope can play enough D that Thibodeau will at least let them see some court time.
AZ Phil, is Roney Alcala injured? It seems he hasnt played in quite awhile.
Whatever. The BIG news is Vince Carter chooses the Grizzlies!!!!
