Re: Official 2010 Reds Signed Draft Picks Thread
This is one of the writers I emailed about some of our unsigned players, from the Charleston Post & Courier sports blog:
The Cincinnati Reds have 17 days to sign Drew Cisco, or it's off to Athens and the University of Georgia for the talented right-handed pitcher who was a star at Wando for four years.
"Not yet," Cisco said when asked if he was close to signing with the Reds, who took him in the sixth round. "It's hard to say if we will reach an agreement. We'll find out soon because the deadline is Aug. 14. It's taking a long time, but hopefully it will be worth it."
Many baseball experts thought Cisco would be taken in the first two rounds, but signability was an issue. The St. Louis Cardinals were going to take Cisco as a supplemental first-round pick, but the sides couldn't agree on a signing bonus.
Cisco has kept in touch with the Reds.
"I went to a RiverDogs game with an area scout and I talked to the director of scouting a bunch," he said.
