    “94-100. FB command spotty. Healthy. Gave up 3-run HR last pitch. Left trailing 4-1. Went 3.1 IP.” Otani had dealt with thigh, ankle issues.

    It would be fairly awesome to walk around in a Ham Fighters jersey.

    Then what in blue hades is he talking about.

    "Instead, MLB’s new collective-bargaining agreement limits the teams to hard-capped bonus pools between $4.75 million and $5.75 million to spend from July 2 until June of next year. "

    Don't know... There is a Luxury Tax system in MLB, whereby teams are charged a "tax" when/if they spend more than a designated threshold... I think the current threshold is around $190 Million...
    Like DWKB suggests, perhaps there is some type of bonus cap that applies to International signings??

    http://www.baseballamerica.com/international/2017-18-international-bonus-pools/

    When the 2017-18 international signing period opens on July 2, it will mark the beginning of the hard cap era for international signings.

    Most teams have a bonus pool of $4.75 million, while some clubs classified as small market or small revenue teams get either $5.25 million or $5.75 million. Teams are allowed to trade their pool space once the signing period opens on July 2. Clubs can trade for up to 75 percent of their original pool allotment and are allowed to trade away their entire pool.

    Teams that exceeded their bonus pools to incur a penalty will still be unable to sign any player for more than $300,000 during the 2017-18 signing period. The Cubs, Dodgers, Giants and Royals will be in their second year of the penalty, while the A's, Astros, Braves, Cardinals, Nationals, Padres and Reds will be in their first penalty year. Teams under the penalty are denoted below with an asterisk (*).

    Once again I say big market teams. They are the only ones that can afford to go over luxury tax and not even flinch.
