Cardinals Sign Seth Blair

The Cardinals formally announced the signing of supplementary first rounder Seth Blair, according to's Matthew Leach (via Twitter). The Cards selected the 21-year-old right-hander 46th overall in last month's draft. Three years ago, the A's selected Blair in the 47th round, but he attended Arizona State instead.

The Cardinals signed Blair for $751,500, according to Baseball America's Jim Callis.  That matches MLB's slot recommendation.

Earlier in the week, we heard that the Cards were close to finalizing an agreement with Blair, so tonight's news is no surprise. Click here for the complete list of top picks to sign.

      I’m sure you hope Austin Wilson signs. Victor Sanchez is another guy to keep an eye on but I do really like the Cards draftees. Seth Blair to me will be something along the lines Johnny Cueto.

        yeah of course i hope Austin wilson signs lol. actually, id rather get him signed than Cox if we can only get one of the 2. if we don’t sign cox, than we still get the 26th overall pick next year.

          Yeah good point. The duo is equivalent of 2 top 10 picks and it would be great if you guys also signed Tyrell Jenkins.
