Here are today’s significant draft signings from around the league.
- The Athletics have signed Florida righty Logan Shore for $1.5MM, as various reporters, including FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman, have tweeted. Shore, the No. 47 overall pick, was the second Florida hurler the A’s took in this year’s draft, having used their first selection to grab lefty A.J. Puk. Prior to the draft, MLB.com rated Shore the 42nd-best prospect available, noting that he has an excellent changeup and possesses good command, helping compensate for average velocity. Baseball America rated Shore the draft’s No. 34 prospect, with its subscribers-only scouting report essentially describing him as a potential future innings-eater. Shore’s $1.5MM bonus comes in slightly above the $1,351,800 pool value for the pick.
