Thanks for posting this, 72. Nice to hear Buckley speak highly of Mejias-Brean, among others.Here is the Buckley interview from Monday afternoon (now slightly out of date with CWS). When he says that a player is "reporting" it is to the Goodyear camp.

The Reds have signed supplemental first-round pick Jeff Gelalich for $825,000.
After hitting a combined .284 with four homers in his first two seasons at UCLA, Gelalich led the Bruins to the College World Series by batting .351 with 11 longballs this spring. A right fielder, he has average or better tools across the board.
The assigned value for Gelalich's No. 57 slot was $897,800. Cincinnati also signed UCLA outfielder Beau Amaral (seventh round) for $146,000 and agreed to terms with Arizona third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean (eighth) for $125,000, wrapping up all of their picks in the first 10 rounds and leaving them $92,400 under their total bonus pool of $6,653,800.
