The top unsigned pick by the Dodgers was their 13th-round pick Ty Damron, a left-handed pitcher out of Krum High School in Texas. The day he was drafted, June 8, Damron told Ben Baby of the Denton Record-Chronicle that he and the Dodgers agreed to a bonus of $300,000, but that apparently didn't come to fruition. Damron, the highest high school pitcher drafted by the Dodgers in 2013, will instead pitch for Texas Tech.
Any bonus over $100,000 for a pick after the 10th round gets counted against the draft bonus pool, so giving Damron a bonus that big would have affected their other moves. The Dodgers spent over their allotted bonus pool amount, and even additional $6,285 of extra bonuses would have resulted in the Dodgers forfeiting their 2014 first round draft pick.
The other pick in the top 26 who didn't sign with the Dodgers was Peter Miller, a 21-year-old right-handed pitcher who will return to Florida State for his senior season.
"It was a tough decision to turn down playing professional baseball," Miller told Seminoles.com. "It is something that I have always wanted to do my whole life."
Here are the 30 Dodgers draft picks who did sign, including a pair of undrafted free agents, and their current professional level. The only one not yet assigned to a team is 23rd round pick Michael Villegas, a right-handed pitcher out of Seton Catholic High School in Arizona. It appears Villegas just signed, as reported Friday by Zach Buchanan of the Arizona Republic.
