2013 Orioles Draft Tracker

Recommended Posts

Looking over Aberdeen's roster, noticed a few undrafted FAs, most notably Austin Urban, who was a potential overslot guy back in I think 2010 with a FB up to 95 and a solid curve. He was a Penn State commit but ended up going to community college in Iowa, where he was drafted by the Cubs in the 41st round and took an overslot bonus before being released to make room for new draftees. I'd imagine there might have been some sort of injury issue what with him not pitching last year.

Unless there has been other information elsewhere, Heim probably should be de-bolded for now. There was the article posted by Br10n that said he expected to sign for near slot, but as I pointed out in that thread there is no news that he has actually signed yet. And in the article on 9th rounder today, it lists Heim as one of the remaining unsigned.

A Major League Baseball source said the Orioles are making some real progress in their contract negotiations with two of their top three picks. If the talks continue to proceed as they have, agreements could soon be reached.The O's are making that progress with their second pick, high school outfielder Josh Hart, taken 37th overall in the competitive balance round after Round 1 of the draft.
High school outfielder Josh Hart, taken 37th overall, and seventh-round pick Drew Dosch, a third baseman out of Youngstown State, have yet to come to terms with the team. A major league source said the Orioles do not appear to be close to getting either player right now and talks with the pair could drag out.

What happened? Both of these are from Melewski's blog.

I guess the old "change your number tactic" was employed.

Dosch hurt his knee before the draft and is unsure whether he will go pro yet. Both he and the Orioles probably want to see how he does in his rehab before agreeing to a price. I imagine the O's are looking to save some money with his slot.

Hart is probably waiting to see how much money the O's save and use that in his negotiations. He has the leverage of college of course, but I doubt the O's are going to give him much above slot. He needs to sign and get out and start playing ball.

Wow. Sorry to hear both of these things.

Hart will sign. It would be a shocker if he didn't. You don't know if the O's offered lower than slot to Hart and are going to play chicken with him or if Hart wants more than slot and is playing chicken with the O's.

Great work with all the draft stuff guys. I see that the O's signed another late round pick to a big bonus. They've had success with this the last two drafts with Davies and Hader.
