2013 MLB Draft: Dodgers sign RHP Jacob Rhame (6th round), per report

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The Dodgers have officially announced the signings of four picks so far: first-round pick Chris Anderson and second-round pick Tom Windle, in addition to 12th-round pick Adam Law and 26th-round pick Thomas Taylor. Anderson and Windle reportedly agreed to deals at slot.

The Dodgers have reportedly agreed to terms with sixth-round draft pick Jacob Rhame, a right-handed pitcher out of Grayson County College in Texas, per Jim Callis of Baseball America. Callis reported that Rhame signed for $300,000, which is over slot.

Rhame apparently agreed to the deal on Tuesday night.

The slotted bonus amount for the Dodgers' sixth round selection, No. 184 overall, is $229,300, meaning the Dodgers are $70,700 over. The Dodgers have a bonus pool of $5,211,700 to use on their picks in the first 10 rounds, plus any amounts over $100,000 for picks in the 11th round and beyond.

There are penalties for going over:

  • Up to 5% over ($5,211,701-$5,472,285): 75% tax on overage
  • Between 5-10% over ($5,472,286-$5,732,870): 75% tax plus loss of first round pick
  • Between 10-15% over ($5,732,870-$5,993,455): 100% tax plus loss of first and second round pick
  • 15% & more over ($5,993,455+): 100% tax plus loss of two first round picks

The Dodgers have officially announced the signings of first-round pick Chris Anderson and second-round pick Tom Windle, in addition to 12th-round pick Adam Law and 26th-round pick Thomas Taylor. Anderson and Windle reportedly agreed to deals at slot.

Fourth-round pick Cody Bellinger reportedly agreed to terms for "third round money," though that deal hasn't been announced yet. For the Dodgers, their slot bonus for the third round was $566,500 and for the fourth round was $409,000, so the club could be roughly $228,200 over their total bonus pool, or 4.38%.

Rhame, 20, was 2-0 with a 2.16 ERA in 12 games, including three starts with Grayson. The 6'3, 220-pound right-hander began his college career at Oklahoma in 2012 before transferring.
