With the new rules attached to the Major League Baseball draft, nondrafted players can sign free-agent deals with professional clubs for a maximum bonus of $20K. And as many know not many teams will take Undrafted Free Agent Signees straight out of Junior College. 

However, that does not mean that there is not any former Junior College Standouts that signed free agent deals so far this year!
