Orioles' 2010 Draftees Signing Tracker (updated 8/12)

Recommended Posts

Very nice. Sawyer is a tall, athletic catcher with a good, albeit raw, bat. It'll be interesting to see where he plays on the field. I think he ultimately ends up at a corner infield or outfield spot.

Here's some video:

I agree completely, just like Ohlman, he is a catcher right now, but projects to probably wind up being somewhere on the corners(OF or IF)....

Slowly but slowly I feel like we need to make some progress with a couple of our early pick. Some are going to be right at the deadline but others should get done beforehand.

Source? Basis? Theory? Wishful thinking?

I guess you can consider it a source. I know of a few guys who are gonna sign by talking to different people. And by reading different places and understanding the process that takes place, I have an idea whats going on.

We are in the process of signing one of Narron or Urban, not sure who yet.

Machado negotiations have taken place.

Kline negotiations are in full swing and should be done pretty soon.

Dixon Anderson was expected to sign this week according to Seiler, but is awaiting the approval for overslot.

There are a couple of others who I have heard are gonna sign but am not supposed to mention.

Once the ball gets rolling(which it has) the signings start to trickle in.

Has there been word that any of our big name draftees (ones that we thought we had a shot at signing) could be leaning towards not signing?

There is almost always some sort of posturing from the player's side. Machado and Bryce Harper blatantly on facebook were conversing back and forth that Machado is gonna join Bryce as CSN and both not sign. But that is just posturing in many/most people's opinions. There is a reason it was a convo posted on their wall, not through the private message variety. Why would they talk about that on Facebook for everyone to see unless there is some sort of agenda? Because both are represented by Boras and he is known to come up with these types of ploys to try to gain leverage(money).

According to a poster on the oriolesprospects.com forums, Connor Narron will sign some time tomorrow. I have no idea if this is reliable or not, but it's exciting nonetheless. Narron is the type of player that I would love for us to target and sign. He's got some nice tools, and I'm hopeful that he and Machado can rise through the system together.

I'm not sure who it is either. I guess we'll find out tomorrow...

Comment on Schrader (O's 10th round pick) from Jim Callis of BA on Twitter:

jimcallisBA Could have gone in 4th or 5th. @Dave_Gershman: Should Clayton Schrader have gone higher in the draft?

https://twitter.com/jimcallisBA

BA also had Schrader's bonus as $300k (above slot)

Callis also has Wynston Sawyer (8th rounder)'s bonus as $300,000. Not sure if that'd been reported here yet. How does that compare to slot recommendation for that pick/round?

jimcallisBA Orioles have officially signed 8th-rder Wynston Sawyer for $300,000. #mlbdraft

Finally, Callis thinks that Narron's bonus will be 2nd round money, not low first round money.

jimcallisBA Believe that will be 2nd rd $ when finalized. @jsh2185: Do you know the $ figure for Narron's bonus? Baltimore Sun reporting low 1st rd.

    • Sad as it is to say, Bud was way better.
    • Yeah, It was and we got unlucky not to win a WS with it.   Thinking back Bonilla (mostly) and his agent were masterful in ensuring he’d have an income most of the rest of his life. $1 million until 2035 by the Mets was masterful. Hard to believe the Mets would agree to it.    Getting paid $34 million and for 34 years after his retirement. I know deferred money is more common now. But, Bobby was ahead of the curve. Also, $1 million was more in 2001 than it is in today’s game. The other $500,000 partially from us until 2023 was also an extra 24 years of income.
    • And you know this how? I ask because I’m a restaurant guy that was in the process of buying/opening a restaurant in Westminster when the pandemic hit in March. My initial thought was on crabs (AUCE) and full service options for breakfast through dinner.    I spoke to several distributors and most of the crabs and crabmeat is from Louisiana and Texas. Here Maryland/Virginia product is mixed in during the season. In bulk, the Louisiana stuff is very affordable even for Jumbo Lump.    FYI, G&M and Timbuktu were owned by the same family for a considerable amount of years. I can’t say that I know if they still are but any change would’ve been in the last couple of years. Speaking of foreign crab meat, It’s Phillips that uses crab meat from a cove they created in Indonesia. They transported Blue Crab from here to there and it’s essentially farm raised, fed fish local to that area, and tastes off IMO. @CarrRun49 You can almost always get Backfin at Giant for around $12. It’s from South America, Peru as I recall. Which is much better than making it out of canned Salmon. The thought of that makes me want to 🤮  I think I’d rather not have them
    • Thank you for the video. I generally “scout” high school players and really hadn’t watched that much of him but he really has a sweet swing. His outfield play isn’t amazing but much better than we have marched out their since Markakis wasn’t resigned. Man that is a great swing!  I know I have said this before, but I was told 15-20 years ago that when you draft, you don’t want the 16 year old with a full beard because he is already peaking maturely but a 20 year old that can’t grow a beard has more to grow into. Not every gm goes with that, but this kid looks like a kid and has room to grow. Also with that logic, they haven’t peaked performance wise.  Physically I can see him turning into a Manny Ramirez body type(let’s hope he has that kind of career without whatever). Also why I like Rutschman, baby face with room to mature into a projectable body type. He reminds me of a Buster Posey at the same age.  Great job on this pick. I was never sold on Martin or Torkleson  (If any Os exects want to employ me, reach out and send me to Cuba!)😉
