Porcello officially done
Now it’s official, Porcello is a Tiger with a four-year Major League contract. Bonus figures are still not confirmed, but last I saw it was somewhere in the $7.25 million range, $4 mil of that is the Major League contract with the rest being considered the signing bonus. Here’s the official release. The Tigers also went way over slot in signing Casey Crosby and Cale Iorg, their fifth and sixth round selections, respectively. Should be some interesting fallout from all of that. Detroit, you may have some ‘splaining to do.
Looks like Bumgarner signed on the dotted line for $2 mil in the end, slightly above what No. 10 pick Tim Lincecum got last year, but a little above the suggested 2007 slot.
