New Feature: Amateur Signing Bonuses Page

Report: Yankees in serious talks with Raul Ibanez
Bronx Parking default could spike stadium parking prices

Bumping up for those who missed it on Saturday: Got a new toy for you folks to play with: the Amateur Signing Bonuses page. It’s a list of signing bonuses the Yankees have paid out to amateur players (draftees and international free agents) in the recent and not-so-recent past. It is in no way complete and it never ever will be because some signing bonus information just isn’t available publicly. The page is under the resources tab in the nav bar above, just under “AVE BLUES” in the street sign. Enjoy.

    Very cool, but that year for Brien Taylor can’t be right. He was drafted the year before Jeter.

      Thanks for fixing it! :-)

    Awesome page.

    $3.7 million for Wily Mo Pena in 1999 sure was a boatload of money and the $80K for Andy Pettitte was a steal.

    Mariano Riveria signed for $3000 in 1990. The best money the Boss every paid to a future player.

      Rivera, Mo deserves his name spelled properly!

    Doesn’t look like they’ve done much in international market in 2011-12.
    Aren’t these now the final months before caps on intl signings go into place? Would seem to be the time for Yanks to sign up high-end talent ahead of Selig’s clampdown on amateur spending.
    Many failures in these signings but the successes easily outweigh those, especially when the risks and prices for major league free agent talent are considered. Being able to land Pineda for Jesus, for instance, could be argued as leading to saving of $110 million-plus to land comparable talent like Darvish.

    Mariano Rivera cost what i pay for one month rent + utilities

    If your name was claudio custodio why would you ever try to use a fake name?

    It’s great to have all this information in one place. I think it would be better if the signings were divided by year.

    Also, the embedded spreadsheet is a bit clumsy to use, at least for me.

    • Mike Axisa

      Google Docs doesn’t allow for much flexibility when embedding. You can download the spreadsheet, save a copy, and use the sort column feature to see the signings by year.
