25th round (751st pick): Will Toffey, 3B, Vanderbilt

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound, draft-eligible sophomore has already said he’s not going to sign with the club. “I really appreciate the Orioles drafting me, and I don’t take that for granted,” Toffey told Adam Sparks of The Tennessean on Saturday. “It’s an honor. But I don’t have any intentions of signing.” As a freshman last season, Toffey had a key two-run double in Game 1 of the College World Series championship series against Virginia.

39th round (1,171st pick): Seth Shuman, RHP, Valdosta H.S. (Ga.)

The 6-foot, 190-pound right-hander signed a national letter of intent in February to play quarterback at Georgia Southern. And Shuman, 18, told The Valdosta Daily Times on Saturday that he plans to honor that commitment. ?I?m pretty sure I?m still going to go to Georgia Southern,? he told the newspaper. ?I have the opportunity to still play baseball and football there and maybe get drafted higher later towards the end of my career there.?

Ok. Who has updated to share? Rep.

O's tend to release the information in groups. Word is that Hays has agreed to terms and that the deal is pending a physical.

That's all I got right now.

Ouch!

I mean good.

Dangit I hate when the high picks sign for overslot.

Glad he signed.

Humpal, the 9th round senior signed for $10K per Callis.

I wonder if those guys ever try and hold out for say 20K?

I mean if they don't sign the O's lose out on that pool money so they are not entirely without leverage.

    • Is that true? I remember that being part of the negotiations but I dont think it ended up being part of the deal since MLB unilaterally set the number of games. MLBTR seems to think there are still qualifying offers and so does Twitter, based on my searching. Mets beat writer seems to think a qualifying offer is still an option and nobody is correcting her, and since she is a woman on the internet writing about sports, I imagine she would be corrected by a million dudes if she was wrong.
    • I don’t disagree with anything you said, and I’m grateful you said it. Everyone needs a designated driver. But lemme play devil’s advocate for a moment. This is 60 games. ~12 starts instead of 30. 60 starters instead of 162, and several guys who can start a time or two and not ruin our lives. One trait of greatness is consistency. Over 60, that is less important than over 162. Our starters and our pen appear much superior to the last couple years. Not enough to matter in 162 because the long season takes a toll, And quality-or lack thereof- finds its level, but in 60 games? Sure. And remember the short season doesn’t help the best, because the best doesn’t need the benefits a short season offers. The defense is much better too, unless Nunez is playing third, anyway. so yes I agree with you, but it’s not out of the question.  
    • This was a nice read.  And that's not sarcasm.
    • No qualifying offers this season.
    • If Stroman gets a qualifying offer he would cost the O's their third pick (either the comp pick after round 2 or, if that pick is traded, their third round pick). Jake Odorizzi got a QO this off-season at the same age as Stroman with a less successful career to date. I think it is quite likely that Stroman gets one too.
    • I appreciate Wildcards's enthusiasm and optimism. This season is such a wildcard because of all the variables that really anything could happen and I wouldn't be overly surprised. Saying that, there is no reality where this is the beginning of a sustainable winning core.  There is just as much of a chance of this team losing ten straight games as they do of keep playing .500 ball the rest of this season.  As Drungo has point out, there are some guys who have started out this season way above their carer norms. Even if you believe Severino, Ruiz, Alberto and Nunez are breaking out as they enter their primes, does anyone think Cobb, Milone and Wojo are going to keep pitching to their current ERAs? Cobb maybe since it seems his splitter has come back, but I'm not buying long term sustainability on Milone and Hyde has used Wojo right but not letting him go more than twice through an order. 
    • What does that mean? What's the cost of Wildcard's optimism? Also, I don't think what I said constituted being negative.  That's an honest appraisal of the team.    Not much of what we are seeing looks sustainable.
