Narciso Crook is listed as signed for $100,000 by Baseball America. Alex Greer is also listed as signed.
I'll mark sheet for Crook etc, when I get home. It seems to me that Cerreto will sign. My undertanding is that if you are not going to pitch you can live with no ligament in the elbow so he must be planing on picthing.
35th rounder Connor Simmonetti will be going to school instead of signing.
Make no mistake, Conner Simonetti was excited to be selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the most recent Major League Baseball draft.
The Fairport graduate, who played first base for the Red Raiders, called his selection in the 35th round a “blessing.”
Simonetti said that he turned down a contract offer from the Reds on Tuesday however, and it probably was no surprise.
When the two-time Democrat and Chronicle All-Greater Rochester Team selection added up the dollar figures of the contract offer and the value he places on education, a combination athletic and academic scholarship to Kent State University in Ohio seemed to be a better proposal.
Simonetti was on the Kent State campus last week for orientation, and met new baseball coach Jeff Duncan.
“They said that I was drafted too low for my talent-level,” Simonetti said. “I don’t think they were too worried at all (that I would sign with the Reds).
“Everyone in my recruiting class (at Kent State) didn’t sign, so they think they may have one of their best classes ever.”
38th rounder Danny Grauer's twitter
No news but he did seem excited to be drafted. Looks like he just finished a summer tournament.
He also tweeted this though some of his posts make me think he may be a Cubs fan.
33rd round pick Matt Blandino is going to CCSU:

Made (probable) last update to Spreadsheet, marking the 'Unlikelys and No Words to Did Not Sign
Baseball America has changed Jarrett Freeland signing bonus from $325,000 to $324,500.
i think we can unsticky this thread?
And the one about 2013 draft pool numbers
FWIW, I kind of like it stickied. A handy reference when a prospect gets your attention and you want to check the round when he was drafted. No biggie, though.
(This is the best thread on this forum, IMO. Can we get this re-pinned mods? Thanks.)
