MLB DraftWe're still digging to get all of the figures this early Tuesday morning after the 2009 First-Year Player Draft deadline, but while we're digging through the numbers, here's something to chew on in-between.

Scott Boras represented six players in the 1st Round alone (Stephen Strasburg, Dustin Ackley, Donovan Tate, Jacob Turner, Grant Green, and LeVon Washington). With the exception of LeVon Washington, all of the Boras Corp. clients in the 1st round were signed by the deadline. So what was the commission total for their services?

Here's the breakdown:

Boras Clients in the 1st Round
Player Amount Signed
1 Nationals. Stephen Strasburg, rhp $15,675,000
2 Mariners. Dustin Ackley, of $7,500,000
3 Padres. Donavan Tate, of $6,250,000
9 Tigers. Jacob Turner, rhp $4,500,000
13 Athletics. Grant Green, ss $2,750,000
30 Rays. LeVon Washington, 2b Unsigned


Reportedly, Boras collects between 5%-6% for signings. We'll split the difference and use 5.5%. The total amount in signings for Boras in the 1st round was $36,675,000.

So, total commission for Boras Corp for the five 1st round signings on Monday?
