Tigers 2022 Draft signings tracker

July 26th, 2022

Below is a list of every player drafted by the Tigers.

Each club has until 5 p.m. ET on Monday, Aug. 1, to come to terms with its Draft selections. If a player has exhausted his collegiate eligibility, he can sign at any time up until one week prior to the next year’s Draft.

Draft-and-follow picks -- high school and junior college players selected after the 10th round who attend a two-year college after the Draft -- can sign with their selecting teams for up to $250,000 up until a week prior to the following year’s Draft.

Total bonus pool: $8,029,300
MLB rank: 19

1 (12): Jace Jung, 2B, Texas Tech -- $4,590,300 (Pick value: $4,590,300)
As reported by Jim Callis of MLB Pipeline, Jung agreed to terms for the full slot value of the 12th overall selection. The former Red Raiders second baseman was the fourth-ranked college hitter in this year's Draft class and the top lefty college bat. He’s the first college middle infielder the Tigers have ever selected with their top first-round pick.

2 (51): Peyton Graham, SS, Oklahoma -- $1,800,000 (Pick value: $1,510,600)
As reported by Jim Callis of MLB Pipeline, Graham agreed to terms for just above slot value. The former Sooner shortstop ranked 28th on MLB Pipeline’s Draft prospect list after leading Oklahoma to runner-up in the College World Series. He hit 20 home runs and swiped 34 bases for the Sooners this season, making him the first 20-30 player in NCAA Division I since 2004.

4 (117): Troy Melton, RHP, San Diego State -- $517,900 (Pick value: $517,900)
Melton was a highly-rated pitching prospect who went back to San Diego State after going undrafted last year. His fastball averages 93 mph but tops out at 97 to go with a low-80s slider and curveball.

5 (147): Luke Gold, 3B, Boston College -- $386,900 (Pick value: $386,900)
The Tigers agreed to terms for slot value with Gold, a bat-first infielder who hit .309 with a .958 OPS this spring for the Eagles.

How bonus pools and pick values work

Each choice in the first 10 rounds comes with an assigned value, with the total for a club's selections equaling what it can spend in those rounds without incurring a penalty. If a player taken in the top 10 rounds doesn't sign, his pick's value gets subtracted from his team's pool. Clubs near the top of the Draft often spend less than the assigned value for those choices and use the savings to offer more money to later selections.

Teams that exceed their bonus pool face a penalty. Clubs that outspend their allotment by 0-5 percent pay a 75 percent tax on the overage. At higher thresholds, clubs lose future picks: a first-rounder and a 75 percent tax for surpassing their pool by more than 5 and up to 10 percent; a first- and a second-rounder and a 100 percent tax for more than 10 and up to 15 percent; and two first-rounders and a 100 percent tax for more than 15 percent.
