Here's a look at the latest notable draft signings from Day 2 and Day 3..
- The Mariners inked sixth-rounder Corey Simpson to an above-slot $400K deal (suggested value: $245K), Callis tweets. The Texas high school catcher/first baseman possesses massive power and a strong arm.
- The Rangers signed third-round right hander David Ledbetter, tweets Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Ledbetter's deal comes with a $350K bonus, less than the slot amount of about $521K, tweets Anthony Andro of FOXSportsSouthwest.com.
- Dodgers sixth-round pick Jacob Rhame agreed to a deal worth $300K, according to Jim Callis of Baseball America (on Twitter). The right-hander, who boasts a solid sinker, got about $70K more than the suggested value for his slot, per BA's rundown.
- The Diamondbacks went well above slot to sign shortstop Jamie Westbrook, according to Callis (on Twitter). The fifth-rounder got $450K, more than the suggested $318K for his draft position.
- One of the fastest players in the draft didn't waste much time in putting his name on the dotted line. The White Sox inked third-round pick Jacob May to a $525K deal, tweets Callis.
- Orioles 16th round pick Randolph Gassaway agreed to sign, Callis tweets. The high school first baseman will get a bonus of $100K.
