5 Unsigned 2013 MLB Draft Picks That Will Haunt Teams' Futures

The 2013 first-year player draft signing deadline expired at 5 p.m. ET on Friday and was just as uneventful as expected.

Before the implementation of a new collective bargaining agreement, players selected in the draft—especially those popped in the first couple of rounds—typically held out on signing until the August 15 deadline. But those also were the days when teams didn’t face spending restrictions, were allowed to offer ridiculously above-slot bonuses and even sign players to a major league contract.

This year, the second under the new CBA, only nine players selected within the first 10 rounds were unsigned heading into Friday. Only one of those players ultimately agreed to terms prior to the evening deadline.

Of the eight unsigned picks, these five players have the potential to make their respective drafting organization regret not working out a deal.
