While there is no slot value to players picked after round 10, the Brewers can sign those players for up to $125,000 without counting against their bonus pool. However, if they sign for over that amount, any amount over will count against the bonus pool.

The Brewers have the 10th-largest bonus pool in available in MLB this year, and if the club exceeds that amount, they will face a penalty. Below are the potential overage amounts and attached penalties for the Brewers this year. In the years since the bonus pools and overage penalties were instituted, teams regularly exceed their allotment and go into the overages. Last season, 15 of 30 teams went over their bonus pool. However, no team under the current system has exceeded the 5% threshold.
