The three-day MLB Draft can seem long for those of us following at home, and even more so for prospects waiting to get selected.
While getting drafted in any round of the MLB Draft is something to be celebrated, the financial implications of getting selected after the 10th round make the decision between going pro or returning to school less obvious. Each choice in the first 10 rounds comes with an assigned value, with the total for a club's selections equaling what it can spend in those rounds without incurring a penalty. If a player taken in the top 10 rounds doesn't sign, his pick's value gets subtracted from his team's pool.
The signing bonuses for players picked in the final 10 rounds is the amount that is left over from the assigned value of the picks in the first 10 rounds. As such, most of the players selected in Rounds 11 through 20 start their careers with five-figure signing bonuses or decide to return to school.
Here's a look at the future prospects for New England players who are still waiting to get drafted.
