Luhnow Radio Interview (Sun. Morning June 14)

Listened to John Maracek and 550 KTRS interview of Jeff Luhnow on Sunday.  Here are the bullet points:

  • 15 signed so far and assigned to Batavia (names to be formally released Monday June 15).
  • RHP Shelby Miller was “dream draft pick” at #19 overall.  Will be assigned to Johnson City if signed.  Late June or early July is what Luhnow hopes for a sign date. 
  • Tyler Bighames (31st round, 939th overall, SS) – Estero, FL High School. University of Oregon commit. Will sign tomorrow and will be assigned to Gulf Coast League Cardinals.  He was supposed to be a tough sign. 
  • Robert Stock (2nd round, 67th overall, C) signed and assigned to Johnson City!
  • Scott Bittle (4th round, 129th overall, RHP) – if signed, should be assigned to Quad Cities or Palm Beach.  An “advanced” pitcher according to Luhnow. 

  • Andy Hillis (49th round, 1479th overall, RHP) – Brentwood HS (Nashville). Nice FB/slider combo. University of Tennessee commit. Will be tough sign according to Luhnow.
