- Pedro Moura of the LA Daily News reports that the Dodgers have signed 23 of their draft picks.
- ESPN.com's Rob Neyer says the Pirates should consider trading Ryan Doumit once he shows he's healthy.
- The man who would make such a move possible, Pirates first rounder Tony Sanchez, will make his pro debut tomorrow, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
- My take: Even though Sanchez receives praise for his polished game, he'll need some time to develop, so if the Pirates plan on having a winning season in the next couple years, holding onto Doumit makes sense.
- ESPN.com's Tim Kurkjian polled 11 MLB players about their ultimate pitcher-hitter confrontation. All 11 chose Albert Pujols and seven chose Roy Halladay.
