You only have to offer up to half of the slot value to the player you draft.

oh of like contact values ok. that **** makes no sense to me either when they're talking about like saving money by drafting a consensus mid rounder so they can spend more later?

Lets not let Rocker fall to the Angels here, please...

Wouldn't really mind tbh.

Stuff regressed quite a bit. He's not a special prospect.

The success rate of MLB draft picks are astronomically slow.  Especially compared to the NFL (or even NBA), so if you've got guys who are graded out similarly you're better off spreading the money around.  Or at least that's the general concept.

It could easily be prospect fatigue at this point.

basically there are some players that want more money than what their slot would be on talent (like a top 15 player wanting top 10 money). Those guys fall because teams in his draft range can't afford the bonus demand. If you go underslot up top then you can get him at the top of the 2nd or and of the various comp picks. You have the extra money from what you saved so you can afford it and get a second top 15 player

For sure.

There were legitimate concerns with his velocity this year though. I wouldn't be totally surprised if he had Brady Singer type of fall.
