Bonuses over $100,000 (rounds 11-40) $0 $0 $0
Totals $2,328,600 $4,947,700 ($261,900)

The Dodgers can spend $247,384 over their slot amounts and not quite reach the five percent threshold that would cost a future first-round draft pick. Coupled with the $261,900 they have already saved with the signings of Oaks, Campbell and Hering, the club has an extra $509,284 it can spend on bonuses, whether it be for first-rounder Grant Holmes or any post-10th-round picks requiring over $100,000 to sign.
