Royals Sign More Draftees to Join Hunter Dozier

A day after announcing the signing of their first round pick, Hunter Dozier, the Royals announced signings of 17 others, including four of their first eleven picks from the first ten rounds.

The big signing yet to happen is that of lefty Sean Manaea, who the Royals view as a second first round pick. The Royals saved about a million dollars with Dozier’s $2.2 million bonus when compared to the slot value for the eight overall pick, and they saved just over $162,000 with their bonus offer to fifth round pick Amalani Fukofuka. That puts them in a good spot to give Manaea an offer that will surely surpass the $1.6 million dollar slot amount for the 34th overall pick. Manaea was originally a potential top ten pick but a hip injury dropped him out of the first round. It’s not expected to be a significant issue once he has surgery to repair a torn labrum. Manaea is advised by Scott Boras.
