In total, the Padres slightly exceeded their bonus pool and will pay a 75-percent tax on the overage. But they avoided more serious penalties (such as potential loss of Draft picks) by staying within five percent of their full pool allotment.
The highest profile absence from the list is Daniel Cabrera, who was rated the No. 55 overall prospect in the Draft. He fell to the 26th round because of his commitment to LSU, and the Padres weren't able to pry him away from college ball.
Nonetheless, the Friars managed to lock down quite a bit of high-school talent. They set a club record by taking prep prospects with each of their first six picks. They signed all six, as well as their next three high-school selections.
In total, the Padres locked up four catchers, eight infielders, five outfielders and 20 pitchers.
