You would know better than I but is that sort of thing common. I would think a high schooler being confused/undecided would be common. Then again, for a scout to publicly call out that high schooler would seem to indicate either bad form by the scout or that this situation is not all that common.


I read that as it was pretty unusual on the player's/adviser's part. The word "beg" is strong, and even though it was the 35th round, that's a pick that could have been utilized elsewhere. I don't think the begging took place weeks ago, it probably was part of a very recent conversation, even during the draft. I know the Brewers have used late round picks on players that would be considered unsignable at that point, but that wasn't the case here.

That was my take but thank you for confirming it.

By the way, sweet! RHP Miller Hogan (St. Louis University) is playing for Wareham, the closest Cape League team to my home (about 35 miles). I sense a visit and a convincing to sign coming his way!


Could be extremely tough. Hogan is a sophomore who was eligible to be picked because he’s 21 years old. Will be drafted next year without the stigma of being a senior sign with no leverage.

"Hogan was the ace of the Billikens’ staff in 2017, posting a 2.70 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP in 90 innings over 15 starts. A native of Overland Park, Kansas, Hogan was also solid during his freshman season at SLU, posting a 3.27 ERA with 59 strikeouts and 22 walks over 71 2/3 innings."

Karlos Morales, LHP, South Hills HS (California)
Just tweeted
On my way to AZ and look who I run into !

Could be coincidence but looks like he may be signed and is heading to rookie ball?

I gotta question the advice he received on this one. You are going to pay (D2 scholarships are only 50% I believe) to go to school, receive d2 coaching, facilities, and terrible spring weather and limited offseason training options. Versus being handed $100000, free tuition fallback, professional coaching, facilities, Arizona weather, etc. I realize MiLB baseball is a grind but this one seems pretty easy to me.
