That’s what Baseball America’s Jim Callis reports. To sign 8 of the first 10 picks in the 2011 draft the Sox spent $2,126,300. They spent $2,786,300 for the entire 2011 draft class. As Callis says, the amount for the 2012 draft can only change if Derrek Lee signs a major league contract which he says is unlikely at this point.

BTW, Seedling To Stars’ Drew Balen looked at how the new draft signing bonus rules will impact the 2012 draft.
