However, if you are looking for just the basics, this is the place for you!
Here is the breakdown by class, day selected and position. (No third basemen were chosen.)
When considering those likely first to sign, one should start with the college seniors as that group has the least leverage to enter a long negotiation. On the other end of the spectrum are the 11 high schoolers taken, who have the threat of attending college instead and re-entering the draft later. This year's signing deadline is July 12.
As denoted by their schools in bold in the table at the bottom, the Cards chose 18 seniors. That includes four in the first 10 rounds, where any money saved can be reallocated to the five high schoolers and two college juniors in that top 10 rounds group.
The top 10 rounds are governed by a total bonus pool allocation to the Cardinals this year of just over $6.9 million. The Cardinals also selected four high schoolers in the first five rounds afterward, 11-15. If any players taken after round 10 receive more than $100,000 each, the excess will also count against the pool.
Here are the Cardinals' pick values.
|Round||Overall #||Pick value||Notes|
|1||28||$1,785,300||Lohse comp pick|
Next is the basic biographical information for all 41. Remember that by clicking on any highlighted player name, you will be taken to his individual player profile page. There, all the prior information we have about him is available – articles, injury news, photos, videos, interviews and more - all in one place.
