Re: Official 2010 Reds Signed Draft Picks Thread
The Reds have made initial contact with the agents representing top pick Yasmani Grandal.
“We’ve exchanged some emails,” Walt Jocketty said. “We’ll probably talk next week. We wanted to give him some time.”
Grandal’s University of Miami team was eliminated from NCAA Tournament. The deadline for draftees to sign is Aug. 16. Yonder Alonso went up to minutes of the deadline in 2008. Mike Leake signed on the deadline day last year as well.
Maybe they want to get him signed before they can make a decision on whether to include Mesoraco in a trade for pitching?
