slotting
 n.— «The dynamic of these negotiations is interesting. On the one side, you have the Pirates, who have traditionally adhered to recommended bonuses, a practice known as slotting. Handing out bonuses over slot hasn’t been the norm for the organization, but they have also tended to draft players considered to have signability issues.» —“Pirates, top pick Alvarez negotiating” by Jenifer Langosch MLB.com Aug. 1, 2008.
