The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

Another NDFA signing mentioned- LHR Matt Ogrodnik, out of Penn State.
can we update the original post to include the new signings?
The Mustangs site has updated their roster with the new signees
Third round pick Neftali Soto, 9th round pick Alexis Oliveras, 16th round pick Shea Snowden, 21st round pick Jeremy Horst, 34th round pick Jeremy Vineyard have all signed according to the Baseball America subscriber database.
Yup, the Reds website shows that Soto signed on June 8th. It also shows 26th rounder Curtis Partch, rhp, as signing one week ago today and 40th round pick Ross C. Hopkins (hs catcher) as signing on June the 8th also. It's nice to see that Vineyard and Snowden signed. I figured they wouldn't sign with them being HS pitchers that were drafted in later rounds.

Your Mom is happy.
Menchaca, the 13th pick, an outfielder, is listed on the Billings roster, must have signed up.
Just something I thought I would add here on Lotzkar as far as a breakdown on him goes. It should give us some insight into what to look for down the road in terms of development and the hurdles he may have to clear. It was posted by Keith Law on his blog prior to the draft Friday May 4th.
One of Aumont's teammates, Kyle Lotzkar, was less impressive in his second outing and may have cost himself a little money. Lotzkar topped out at 91 and pitched at 87-89 with poor control and no second pitch that graded out as average or better. The bigger concern is his delivery; he has a wrist wrap, and his arm action is rough, with his elbow coming up above his shoulder as he starts his delivery. It's going to be hard for him to have command with that arm action, and there's probably an increased risk of an arm injury as well. Lotzkar has been projected to go in the sandwich round or high second, but I'd put him more in the fourth-fifth round range off that one look.
