RE: 2017 MLB Draft
Slot value for the 146th pick is a $343,100 signing bonus.
Slot value for the 286th pick is a $137,100 signing bonus.

Large is a junior with a year left of eligibility thus he has some negotiating leverage. Raquet is a draft-eligible sophomore and thus has two years of eligibility left and has even more leverage. Seniors, with no eligibility left, have no leverage and thus are typically drafted by teams looking to save slot money to spend instead on high-risk, high-reward prep players. MLB's arcane draft rules highly incentivize signing your draft picks taken in the first ten rounds.

RE: 2017 MLB Draft
According to Minor League Ball, Large is the 7th best secondbaseman available in the draft:

The same site lists Raquet as the 24th best left handed pitcher available but the article did not include any write-ups.

RE: 2017 MLB Draft
Minor League Ball also listed Ryder Miconi as a senior that should get some consideration given the strength of his final season.

In what Baseball America is calling a banner year for draft prospects in Virginia, Nick Raquet is considered the 6th best prospect in the state, Cullen Large is eighth, Nick Brown is 29th, and Aaron Fernandez is 31st.

RE: 2017 MLB Draft
Cullen Large can come back to W&M next year as a senior...depends on his draft. If he goes in top ten rounds he's probably goiung to go. Later than that he may return for his senior year to boost his draft level in 2018.

Would be great for our team if he returns...very good swing; needs to cut down on his strikeouts some.
An All-American candidate for W&M if he returns in 2018.

I don't see Racquet going this year...he'll want a much better year for the Tribe next season.

He's nuts if he doesn't sign. Third round money is pretty big and the Nats don't have a ton in the minors. Great chance to advance quickly
