    DOB says we’ve agreed to terms with our top 10 round picks “among others.” Which is pretty unhelpful.

    It’s by no means definitive, but this write-up from Webber University’s website certainly makes it sound as if the program/coach thinks thirty-fourth-rounder Willie Carter is going to sign:

    Webber's Head Baseball Coach Brad Niethammer said, "I'm really happy for Willie [Carter] on his selection in this year's MLB draft and his opportunity to play professional baseball. He had a big year for us and will do well at the next level."
    He’s an intriguing power bat.
    "For all his tattooings he was on the whole a clean, comely looking cannibal."

    DOB reports "Braves have signed all of their choices through 10 rounds, among others." Starting to sound like a major slam for Brown on his rookie draft.

    It's going to be very interesting to follow the careers of the four college shortstops taken at picks 14 (Stutts), 15 (Wilson), 21 (Shewmake), 22 (Jones) and Davidson (29). There was a lot of depth at the position this year. As a rule, I like drafting players who play at positions considered the strength of the draft.

    Shewmake. We know he is a bust.

    Certainly also highly non-definitive, but Mahki Backstrom has been retweeting a lot of “Welcome to the Braves” and “#ChopOn” messages. At the very least, that’s not a bad sign.

    1B Bryce Ball did an interview for his Twitter account and said Braves changed his mind about returning to college (Dallas Baptist) despite being a 24th round pick. Chalk up another for what is looking like a huge draft class.

    I am now convinced he’s signing and will personally blame you for my disappointment if he does not.

    17th round pick Alec Barger not "Bargar" is headed to Florida for final physical and "rookie camp."

    Doesn't matter how many we sign. They are all busts.

    I wonder how much the “advisors” to these amateur players know about the bonuses to which signed players have agreed, versus how much a team like the Braves can tactically delay the release of that information to maintain one more slice of leverage.

    That’s a bit surprising, but also further explains the left-field Phillip pick; I’d have to assume the latter is somewhat significantly underslot.
