  2. Thanks for the info... Do you have a link for either of those by any chance?

    ReplyDelete
  3. No links but they did sign on the 12th.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Alright, thanks again for the info.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'd give you the amounts they signed for....but that's up to them to release at this point.

  6. A few weeks ago, I had the chance to see Tyler Bortnick play 3B against the Tar Heels. I was very impressed by his glove and arm. He should be a very solid pro.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Jacob Partridge 18th round pick just signed!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Good to hear! I'll wait for official confirmation before adding him to the list.

    ReplyDelete
  9. 36th rounder Jeff Cinadr is listed on Hudson Valley's roster, so I'm adding him.

    ReplyDelete
  10. 35th rounder Chris Murrill is also listed, so he's been added as well.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Baseball America lists Fuller's signing bonus at $150k and Nommensen's at $25k

    ReplyDelete

  14. A bit on Cody Rogers from his HS coach:

    "His speed is the No. 1 thing. He runs so well. Of course, the Tampa Bay Rays love guys that can run and that's kind of their M.O. Cody fits that description," Mitchell said. "And he's a left-handed hitter. As a big kid, about 6-2, who can really run and hits from the left side, those two things probably attracted Tampa Bay to Cody. He's young and he's going to be a kid that's going to work really hard."

  15. Looks like you can add Ryan McCarney (33).

  16. ...And Scott Shuman (19)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Article is dated 6/19 and neither appears on Princeton's roster as of 6/24 so I don't know. Plus, since the Rays said earlier that they have signed 25, that means 2 of the 25 we are showing are wrong. So I'm gonna hold off on McCarney and Shuman for now. They also aren't on Hudson Valley or GCL Rays rosters either.

    ReplyDelete
  18. HI I AM A SOURCE FROM INSIDE THE HUDSON VALLEY RENEGADES CLUBHOUSE TEAM THERE ARE REPORTS FROM MANGEMENT THAT DAN APRIL WAS SENT DOWN TO ROKKIE BALL (PRI) AND HE REFUSED AND RETIRED FROM PROFENISAL BASEBALL EAIRLER TODAY THANKKS =]

    ReplyDelete
  19. 19th round pick Shuman signed. Just got put on Princeton team!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Shuman and 21st rounder Matt Swilley are both signed/signing soon, I'm just waiting for the official word(which could come today) so I can put them up there.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Matt Swilley signed and is with the GCL Rays, wearing #23. Saw him today.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Swilley signed for $150 grand

  23. A brief video of Jeff Malm:

    Malm from an interview covering Gorman's American Legion team:

    Malm, a fifth-round draft choice of the Tampa Bay Rays in June, is undecided whether to sign a professional contract or fulfill his college commitment to Southern California.

    He said he remains in negotiations and is unsure what to expect before the Aug. 17 pro signing deadline.

    "I'm just taking it day by day right now," said Malm, the Louisville Slugger National Player of the Year. "It could be any day I get the call that something gets worked out, or the deal could be off. I'm just playing games with (the Titans), and I'll see what happens after that."

  25. Had to go ahead and dust this off, BaseballAmerica's latest transaction page lists 30th rounder Marcus Proctor as signed.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The Rays official site lists his signed date as 8/3, so that's what I have here.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Apparently we signed Glaesmann, little birdy told me.

    The Rays are closing in on deals with several of their top draft picks: No. 3 OF Todd Glaesmann, No. 4 C Luke Bailey, No. 5 1B Jeff Malm and No. 9 LHP Kevin James, of Whitefish Bay (Wi.) HS. No. 1 pick INF LeVon Washigton and No. 2. SS Kenny Diekroeger have not signed.

  29. Can't find anything saying Todd Glaesmann has signed yet, but thanks for the tip Jake. Kevin monitors this closely, so as soon as he knows, it'll be posted.

    I'm thinking this is going to be a busy weekend for signings (but not necessarily for announcements), with Monday night at midnight as the deadline (unless another Boras thing, I suppose).

    Correct me if I'm wrong, due to the weekend, 8/15 becomes 8/17, and there is all day on 8/17 (Monday), so basically the deadline is when the clock turns to Tuesday 8/18. And even then, announcements may not come out for hours. Let me know if I'm wrong on the deadline, it's what I've heard since the draft.

  30. Doug, According to the countdown clock on BBA's home page, you are correct.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks Anon, a couple of months ago I understood this, and lately I've heard conflicting reports, so I just wanted some confirmation. So until otherwise heard, we're looking at Monday night/Tuesday morning for final word on who has/has not signed. Should be fun.

    And KG, feel free to bump up the Malm and Signing Board posts so people can find them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. 9th rounder Kevin James will sign, probably announced on Monday. I'll add it to the board once I get confirmation from a news source or the team.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sign Kenny Diekroger!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nice to know that Tyler Bortnick will be heading to the New York-Penn League All-Star game.

    ReplyDelete
  35. can we at least get floro c'mon!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Kalani Brackenridge will play baseball only for the University of Hawaii:

    "The middle infielder and 2009 Kapolei graduate said he will join the UH baseball team. He had signed a letter of intent in February to play football with an agreement that he could try out for baseball. But he has since relinquished his football scholarship to focus solely on baseball."
