Mummey close to signing; Jordan confident on Narron

Recommended Posts

Now that the First-Year Player Draft is over, it's time for scouting directors around baseball to start signing some of the players they selected.

That process has already begun for the Orioles who already are close to an agreement with their fourth-round pick, Auburn outfielder Trent Mummey.

"We do have a pretty good understanding with Mummey, our fourth-round pick. I think he's ready. Klein at three (from UCLA) is still playing. They're in the Super Regionals this weekend. We'll have to wait like we always do with some of the top guys," O's scouting director Joe Jordan said a few moments ago in the Camden Yards press box.

The Orioles reportedly could sign 10 to 12 draft picks over the next few days, but only Mummey among the top ten round picks.

Mummey could possibly start at Aberdeen or maybe even with Delmarva.

"We've got a lot of players that are ready to go. I think the money is fine. I've got to take care of some administrative things on my end. I'll do that hopefully by sometime tomorrow and we'll be ready to sign the guys."

Jordan repeated what he said yesterday when asked about fifth-round pick Conner Narron.

"We'll sign Conner, I feel good about that."


As I said elsewhere, I think Mummey and Narron are big keys to our draft. We can afford to be hit-and-miss on some of the pitchers, due to the depth we have there already. We really need some hitters in our system.

Sounds good on Narron's end:


"Narron, who had signed a letter of intent to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill last November, is eyeing an immediate future in professional baseball.

"I'm hoping to sign," Narron said in a telephone interview Tuesday afternoon. The son of former major league player and manager Jerry Narron, the younger Narron said his final decision depends on what the Orioles will offer."
