I get what you're saying but if you were without a doubt going to take the money in the 4th then why not take the same money in the 7th?

Ego. It's the same reason Carlos Rodon wouldn't sign. If you go back and read his past draft interviews. He was called around the 3-4 round saying he'd be drafted however then was passed over until like the 17th. He was very upset and made comments that if he was drafted when they said in the 4th, he would have been more willing to sign. Due to circumstances though, he took it personal and as a chip in the shoulder. Good call in end for him since he had amazing career and was picked #2 or #3 last year and already made it to MLB

well, it looks like we struck out on the slew of those (hard to sign) 1st-3rd round talent we took a flyer on at the end of the draft as they all have decided to go to college. unless you count Christian Trent, who PG had at #221, but BA did not even have in the top 500. either way- do you think it was worth it to draft those guys knowing you'd probably not be able to lure them to play or rather take some guys you know you could sign, but have a low % chance of ever making to the MLB?

We won't know until the signing deadline. Obviously they're going to be adamant about going to college now, because they're potentially negotiating for more money.

I think it's pretty clear that Everett/Hooper would only sign for >$2M or so though, which isn't going to happen.

I lean towards it being worthwhile even if no one changes their mind this year. Any of them who might sign would immediately be pretty good prospects with a chance to be high ceiling types, it is just incredibly rare to find those types of players any more with normal late round picks. On the other hand you are kind of playing the field with all manner of things that might change their mind and cause them to sign. In the last few years you had Scooter not getting to his ACT test on time and losing his scholarship, and Dylan Covey discovering he had diabetes (in that case he went the other direction away from signing, but frankly some unexpected like that would seem to make it more likely for a kid to want to take 500K+ on the spot).

the draft being too long to begin with, may as well waste your pick on those players who won't sign at all, vs taking someone who may take that 10k offer you have no dreams of ever getting through A ball. Plus, you also stop any other team from drafting them and maybe getting a flash in the pan heroic signing because they found out that he'd only consider the lower deal if he was selected by their favorite team potentially living the dream of playing for them. At least enjoying Spring Training with them.

Bombers’ Petersen weighing pro option
Nick Buckley, Battle Creek (MI) Enquirer

Image

Michael Petersen has been through this scenario before, but that doesn’t make his impending decision any easier.

On June 10, the Milwaukee Brewers selected the Battle Creek Bombers’ pitcher in the 17th round, 511th overall in the Major League Baseball Draft.

It marked the fourth time the 6-foot-7, 200-pound hurler from Riverside City College has been drafted — going in the 19th round in 2012 (Pittsburgh Pirates), the 31st round in 2013 (Texas Rangers) and the 24th round in 2014 (San Francisco Giants).

Petersen will make a decision before July if he wants to sign a professional contract and report to the Brewers for rookie ball, or if he wants maintain his amateur status, continue to develop in the Northwoods League and improve his draft stock.

“Just waiting to see what is the best move,” Petersen said. “People take education lightly, but education is something I take seriously. If that’s the best move, then that’s the best move.

“I have friends that ended up signing out of high school. And right now they are back at home. The majors do a fantastic job of giving money to kids who need it — and that’s awesome. But it’s (a question of), ‘Who is going to have the drive to go back at age 26-27 and go and start schooling again that late?’

With a fastball that has reportedly topped out at 97 mph and a tall, lean frame with room to fill out, it’s no surprise Petersen has seen his name called by major league teams in four drafts.

“His size automatically plays for the draft,” said Bombers pitching coach Matt Reed. “If you want to see a prototypical pitcher at the next level, it’s a kid of his size. Even though he’s a little skinny, he’ll get bigger when he gets to professional baseball. The biggest thing with him is, I had to tell him, ‘These guys are swinging wood bats. Your fastball is pretty good. Go right at them because there’s not too many guys in that dugout that are going to be able to turn that around.’ Getting him to understand he can sit there and dominate guys with his fastball... It’s not even fair.”

Petersen pitched just 1 1/3 innings for Riverside City College (Calif.) this past season. After a rocky first appearance for Battle Creek, he’s settled in with nine strikeouts while allowing just five hits over seven innings of relief.

“Of course, it’s everyone’s dream to play professional baseball. And that’s my first choice,” said Petersen, who is studying kinesiology. “But if things don’t work out, I’m more than happy to finish my schooling and go that route too.”

I think Orimoloye is my favorite pick so far this year just because it would be funny hearing Uek trying to say that name.

Harber makes the jump from college to MLB
The Daily Astorian (Oregon)

Astoria’s Conor Harber announced Sunday that he will sign today with the Milwaukee Brewers, and hopes to begin play soon with the team’s minor league affiliate in Helena, Mont.

Less than three weeks after being selected by the Brewers in the 16th round of the Major League Baseball draft, Harber plans to travel today to Helena, where he will sign.

The Helena Brewers — a Rookie League affiliate of Milwaukee — compete in the North Division of the Pioneer League.

“I’ll sign a contract and hopefully start playing,” said Harber, a right-handed pitcher, who played two years at Western Nevada College, then played the 2015 season at the University of Oregon.

After being drafted in previous years by Tampa Bay and Baltimore, Harber said he felt the time was right to turn pro.

“As long as you can get into the system and start working your way up … as long as you get that chance, then things are good,” he said. “I’ll miss Oregon a lot, but I’m excited.”
