Jordan Shipers signs for $800K

4

Generally considered to be a much higher-round talent with signability issues. Awesome. EDIT: ProBallNW says: "#492 – Jordan Shipers, LHP, South Harrison HS (MO) - Shipers probably would have gone fairly early in day two if he wasn’t so committed to playing for Missouri State. He has a solid three pitch mix already, with a fastball that tops out in the low 90s, a slider that is inconsistent but generally shows good depth, and usable changeup. Some worry that he could have trouble with his velocity down the road because of his slight stature and high effort delivery. He’s probably a 2012 draft prospect, but Seattle will throw some money at him and see what happens. If they land him it’s a nice get for the 16th round."

Non-tendered relievers

A few relievers were non-tendered, many of whom have once had moderate success and could be cheap options.  I know little about any of them though, so I don't know if any are better than internal...
