Baseball America released the upcoming 2017 MLB Draft pools. The Chicago White Sox, who have the 11th pick in the first round, have a total pool of $7,543,600. That is a significant decrease from last year when they had $9,416,600 to spend on picks thanks to additional draft pick they earned when Jeff Samardzija signed with the San Francisco Giants.

In 2016, the Philadelphia Phillies had $9 million in bonus pool with the first pick. In this upcoming June, the Minnesota Twins will only have $7.4 million when they select the first player thanks to changes in the CBA. They lead all teams in total bonus pool money with $13,481,500.

Here are the bonus slot values for each White Sox pick:

1st Round: $3,998,900

2nd Round: $1,284,500

3rd Round: $606,100

4th Round: $433,200

5th Round: $323,600

6th Round: $245,800

7th Round: $192,100

8th Round: $153,900

9th Round: $136,200

10th Round: $128,000

Here is how the American League Central stacks up for total bonus pool money:

  1. Minnesota Twins: $13,481,500
  2. Kansas City Royals: $7,691,500
  3. Chicago White Sox: $7,543,600
