Where the top 30 international prospects signed

Because they exceeded the bonus limit during the 2015-16 period, the Dodgers were limited this time from exceeding a $300,000 bonus for any one player. As a result, the Dodgers did not sign any of the top 30 players as ranked by MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez. The Dodgers will not be bound by such a limit next year.

The Dodgers also signed Jorge Hernandez out of the Venezuelan baseball academy run by former Dodger Cesar Izturis.

Ken Gurnick has covered the Dodgers since 1989, and for MLB.com since 2001.
