    At #32, Matthews looks like a low risk pick but with potentially high reward. BA says his swing is a mess and his ability to accept coaching is in question, yet he does have plus raw power. Perhaps a change of coaching can make a difference. I checked his Rutgers stats and noticed that he stole 16 of 18 leading the team in that department. Hopefully, he will not be tethered to 1B.

    That makes 8 out of the top 10 signed and 24 out of the 50 picks signed. How does this compare to last year? I hope Grandal and Cisco and Waldrop and Shepherd also sign? What other draft picks should the Reds concentrate on signing?

    The Reds signed 34 of their draft picks in 2009 (including all 16 through the first 15 rounds), but they've already released five of those players. A few of them were signed very close to the deadline, so I wouldn't be too nervous if it seems like they're slacking when it comes to signing players from this year's draft. I would expect at least five more to sign before the deadline, especially since players who sign for above slot--and the Reds have a few players who are expected to do so--typically need more time for their bonuses to be approved by the commissioner.

    More signings and Roster moves from Baseball America. 46th round draft pick Patrick Quinn among the signings.

    http://www.baseballamerica.com/blog/prospects/?p=9577

    Cincinnati Reds
    Signed: OF Drew Poulk (NDFA—North Carolina State)
    Draft pick signed: RHP Pat Quinn (46)
    Released: RHP Jon Adkins, LHP Derrick Lowery
    Placed on 7-day DL: RHP Mark Serrano
    Reinstated from DL: SS Jake Kahaulelio, OF Sean Conner

    Drafted as a first baseman last year from Young Harris (Ga.) JC, Derrick Lowery tried his hand at pitching before drawing his release. He gave up nine runs on 12 hits over 5 1/3 innings in the Rookie-level Arizona League.

    I think Tant Shepherd would be a good sign if the Reds sign him.

    I think Shepherd has an underrated bat and will improve at the plate. He played 1B for Texas last season, but I think he is probably capable of playing other positions.

    I watched some Texas games last season and Shepherd usually stood out as a nice hitter.

    I agree. I liked what I saw from him in the WS; however, he's a 49th round pick...which means the Reds will probably have to go way over slot to get him signed. Based on previous years, that probably means the MLB office will hold up his signing until close to the deadline...if he signs at all.

    The internet is a pretty good resource for that sort of thing. Try that out.

    I'm not sure if anyone posted this article from June, a story from Yasmani Grandal's hometown paper talking about him turning down the Bosox offer out of high school and the payoff now being drafted in the 1st round.

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/06/2...r-grandal.html

    I may email the writer to see if he's heard any rumblings.

    Looks like the door is still open for Kyle Waldrop to sign. Here's a blog about USF baseball and it indicates that the university is still waiting to see if he will sign (as well as two other recruits).

    Re: Official 2010 Reds Signed Draft Picks Thread

    Nothing new on the contract front for Brandon Dailey, but found this recent article about the Canada junior national team.

    http://www.newsobserver.com/2010/07/...and-ready.html

    Canada is also strong in the middle infield, anchored by shortstop Brandon Dailey, from Brantford, Ont.

    Standing in at 5'10", 170-pounds, Dailey isn't the most imposing player physically, but nonetheless a solid athlete with a multi-use skill set.

    Described by the coaching staff as a leader on the team, Dailey should provide consistent contact at the top of the order (likely second) given his aggressive approach at the plate and tendency to square up on pitches. His ability to run and hit for average are both amplified when you consider his exceptional defensive talents, behind a strong infield arm and soft hands.

    From what I understand Waldrop is all but signed. The commissioners office is holding it up much like the Barnhart signing last year due to being so far over slot.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    I use BA.

    They show each club's draft and round by round across clubs, who has signed and for how much.

    Very few #1's in the top half have signed to this point, which is normally the case.

    Re: Official 2010 Reds Signed Draft Picks Thread

    Can officially stop looking for updates on the Auburn pitcher, Brad Hendrix. He's not going to sign.

    http://auburntigers.cstv.com/sports/...072010aac.html

    Hendrix was a 30th round pick of the Cincinnati Reds but will instead return for his fourth season with Auburn. A right-handed reliever that has made 58 career relief appearances, he was 4-2 with a 5.35 ERA in 33 2/3 innings in 2010 with one save. Sporting a career record of 12-7, he led the team in wins as a sophomore with a 7-3 mark, coming out of the bullpen for all 24 of his appearances, throwing 46 innings and putting together a 5.09 ERA.

    "I am definitely excited about coming back. I had a really fun year last year. I improved a lot and I think the expectations have risen," Hendrix said. "I expect to do more this year and help us go further. I still have a lot to prove and I am excited about my senior year and being a leader on the team."
