Orioles Won’t Sign Second-Rounder

According to Steve Melewski at MASN Sports, the Orioles have decided not to offer a contract to no. 54 overall pick Mychal Givens. Givens, a high school SS, had apparently increased his asking price on draft day and the Orioles selected him anyway. But now scouting director Joe Jordan decided didn't "feel good" about the figures demanded.

Jordan indicates that the money will be allocated toward players he considers second-round talent, though he does not identify whom. The O's will now have two second-round picks in next year's draft.
