AL Central Notes: Santana, Liriano, Antony, Castellanos, Fielder

Here's the latest from the AL Central:

Tigers have less than $ 2.1 million to spend on 2012 draft. - Bless You Boys
The amount that the Tigers can spend is significantly lower because they will surrender their first round pick to the Brewers for signing Prince Fielder. Not only do the Tigers lose the pick, but they also lose the "slot bonus" that is allocated with that pick. A significant percentage of signing bonuses is given to players drafted in the first round. Only the Angels, who will lose their first and second round picks for signing CJ Wilson and Albert Pujols, will have a smaller bonus pool than the Tigers this year.
