But it does lose us a compensation pick if something goes horribly wrong. I'm interested in why management was so interested in signing him this early.
Right, which is why I'm not enamored with the signing. It should be emphasized that the team is required to tender him a bona fide offer each summer, or they'd lose his rights pursuant to CBA Article 8.6.
The real question will be answered when we see the details of the contract, because a league minimum ($500k contract) with no bonuses qualifies as a bona fide offer. If that's the contract McIlrath signed, then it's clear that the Rangers were simply doing what they must to retain him. If the contract includes bonuses and is for more than league minimum, then it's clear they actually wanted to sign him now. Note: you don't have to make bona fide offers to college player to retain their rights. Article 8.6(c).
