It's been a week since we made our last draft pick signing (Henry Hirsch). We've signed 18 of our 40 picks so far.
The College World Series has been played.
Four of our first ten rounds picks remain unsigned, most importantly Austin Meadows who gave the impression after the draft of being happy with being drafted as a Pirate, most thought he'd be a quick and easy sign, but that hasn't happened yet.
We seem to have quite a lot of picks this year who appear to be hard signings requiring over-slot deals because of college committments or other reasons, we've paid our eighth rounder around 300K in over-slot bonus money which sounds a LOT for an eighth rounder in any draft. It would be nice to make some more signings to fill up our farm system and keep the conveyor belt of prospects ticking along nicely for the future.
Do you guys think we will eventually sign Meadows ? Will we sign all draft picks from the first ten rounds ?
And who in your view will be the sleeper prospect from the later rounds we should try most to sign up ?
