First Round Picks Are Starting To Sign

According to the MLB Draft Results Tracker at FanHouse, three first-round picks from last week’s draft have already agreed to contract terms and been assigned to minor league teams

  • Tony Sanchez, the Boston College catcher who went to the Pirates at number four, signed on Friday for $2.5 million and will begin his career with the West Virginia Power (A).
  • Drew Storen, the Stanford pitcher who was taken tenth with the Nationals second pick (the compensation pick for the team’s failure to sign Aaron Crow last year), signed on Wednesday for $1.6 million and will start out with the Hagerstown Suns (A).
  • Eric Arnett, the Indiana pitcher who the Brewers selected at number 26, signed yesterday for $1.2 million and was sent to Helena (Rookie).
