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.
