    This looks like he is wanting to sign.

    The Reds will follow Lutz' progress in Chatham, where he'll pitch from the bullpen.

    "Teams were not likely to use a 10th or even 11th-round pick on someone that could possibly be injured," said Lutz. "They want to be sure and once I get [to Chatham] in the summer, I'll be able to prove to the Reds that I'm definitely 100 percent."

    Re: 2006 Draft signings thread

    In terms of Turner and Dorn not signing yet, it makes you wonder if the Reds are being fair with these guys. With both of them being seniors and having very little leverage, you'd think they would have signed already.

    The only reason I can think of for not signing yet is #1 they want to take a break after a long season or #2 the Reds aren't being reasonable with their bonus money.

    Hopefully it's #1.

    I wouldn't worry too much about Turner and Dorn just yet. Their season ended less than a week ago. I'd imagine they didn't even start talking until this week.

    Hal says the Reds have signed their first ten picks, so that means Turner is now in the fold. He also says the Reds have signed 25 of their top 30 picks, Turner would make number 24. Wonder who the 25th guy is? It can't be Kainer or Wehrle as both have stated they will not sign - that narrows it down to Jamie Arneson(16th), Derrik Lutz(19th), Eddy Rodriguez(20th), or Tony Brown(23rd).

    The farm report

    The Reds have signed all of their top 10 June draft picks, five of whom are pitchers and 25 of their top 30.

    Dorn has also signed according to the Cal State Fullerton board. Both Turner and Dorn will report to Billings.

    With Arneson and Lutz out playing summer league ball trying to impress the Reds and the unlikelyhood of signing a HS player beyond the 20th rd, I'd say Rodriguez is most likely signed.

    With that being said, I hope it's either Lutz or Arneson.

    CINCINNATI - The Reds today signed their seventh, 16th and 32nd-round draft picks. The Reds have signed the top 13 picks and 16 of the top 17.
    This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.

    16 474 Jamie Arneson lhp Bakersfield (Calif.) CC CA signed today. This is great news.

    That is terrific news. Arneson has a chance to be a steal. Anytime you can add a 6'5" lefty with good velocity... you do it.

    He struck out 102 batters in 81 innings this season. Here is a tidbit on his last start (June 18):

    San Luis Obispo starter Jamie Arneson was not involved in the decision despite blanking the Sox (9-6 overall, 5-5 CCL) through seven innings and striking out 10. The lefty out of Bakersfield Community College retired 11 straight at one point before Monterey tied it with three runs (two unearned) off reliever Lee Taylor in the eighth.

    http://www.sanluisobispo.com/mld/san...s/14847324.htm

    Now sign Lutz and I'll be happy.

    What is the scouting report on Arneson?

    http://reds.mostvaluablenetwork.com/...draft-roundup/[url]
    16. Jamie Arneson, LHP, Bakersfield (Calif.) CC
    6′5″/195#, L/L, Age 20

    “Struck out 102 batters in 81 innings this season.”

    “For Arneson, his 16th-round selection came as a disappointment considering his high expectations entering the draft. The lefty, who helped the Renegades to their first outright conference title since 1976, was chosen in the 9th round out of high school and Arneson had hoped to improve on that.

    The 6-foot-5 prospect may have scared off interested teams, though, after switching agents the night before the draft.

    “I knew it would be a bit of an issue,” he said, “but I didn’t know it would be this big.”

    But Arneson still has college eligibility remaining and a scholarship to play for Mike Martin at Florida State if he so chooses. This summer will be spent pondering options and trying to convince the Reds he’s worthy of more money than the average 16th-round pick.

    “I’m probably going to play in the Cape Cod league and just show them what I can do and see what they say then,” Arneson said.”


    And guess what: Arneson signed at the end of June? Apparently money talks. Or something did.

    John Touchston, He was our 35th round pick. On BA is says that he could have been a early round pick but had arm trouble in the back part of the season. He sign with Houston and they said they he could be a premium talent come 2009. Maybe the Reds should offer him some money. He pitched 94 last summer.
