    Cincinnati Reds
    Signed: C J.R. Reynolds (NDFA—Ohio), 3B Joe Jocketty (NDFA—Miami-Hamilton (Ohio), OF Corey Wimberly (released by Braves, May 30)

    Draft picks signed: RHP Ben Lively (4), RHP Joe Mantoni (18), RHP Daniel Wright (10), 1B Logan Uxa (32), SS Cory Thompson (5), OF Dalton Carter (17), OF Phillip Ervin (1)
    The Reds signed a pair of undrafted Ohio college players after the draft who happen to be the progeny of Reds executives. Joe Jocketty, whom the Cubs drafted out of a St. Louis high school in ’09, is the son of GM Walt Jocketty. J.R. Reynolds, who previously attended Cincinnati’s Moeller High, is the son of pro/global scouting director Terry Reynolds.

    Really do not like the nepotism. Hopefully these are nothing more than token signings, because these two are not legitimate players.

    Over budget on Mahle. Didn't expect that. Updated the spreadsheet to Signed for all listed on the Billings roster.

    Re: 2013 Official Draft Picks and Signings Thread

    I always found it curious that, to my knowledge, the Reds don't publicly release information on draft signings. I would imagine quick press releases with players and the bonus wouldn't be too onerous; or perhaps even in digest form, a weekly release announcing all the signings of the past seven days.

    Anybody have an idea why they don't announce draft signing information?

    Redszone and this thread have been brought to the attention of Ty Boyles. Will he join up?

    I dunno.. Just looks like organizational filler. Hard to argue that they are costing a better prospect playing time.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Neither should get an AB or play an inning in the field. Won't know till they play the games.

    Good stuff.

    As a teenage star athlete I would guess he has 1 thing on his mind and redszone ain't it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if more people read redszone than we think though. I definitely think Chris Welsh does.

    IMO the success (probably an overstatement) of this draft class after the 5th round will come down to whether or not we can sign one or both of Abreu/Morales, especially since it appears Benintendi and Collins are definitely not signing.
    Go BLUE!!!

    They saved a lot of money on those last 3 picks.

    Apparently Abreu will not be signing with Reds

    http://miami.247sports.com/Article/O...o-Miami-135854

    Mater Academy outfielder Willie Abreu, a 14th-round draft pick by Cincinnati, has decided he will attend the University of Miami spurning a big offer by the Reds.
