The 2010 Major League Baseball Draft is a couple weeks in the rear-view mirror and the Arizona Wildcats have no news…which is great news.
Sophomore outfielder Steve Selsky and five incoming recruits were drafted but, as of now, none have signed pro contracts.
Here is the Wildcat and the five Maybe-Cats we’ll be tracking:
|Player||Position||Round||Pick||Team||Signed?||Jesus Valdez||RHP||5||174||Angels||no||D.J. (Douglas) Peterson||INF||33||1,002||Mariners||no||Steve Selsky||OF||34||1,040||Rockies||no||Konner Wade||RHP||35||1,051||Diamondbacks||no||T.C. (Taylor) Mark||C||35||1,059||Brewers||no||Ryan (Derek) Casillas||C||40||1,201||Diamondbacks||no|
The Aug. 15 signing deadline is still seven weeks away which is a lot of time for young ballplayers to decide they don’t want to sit in class anymore.
UA baseball fans should think happy (amateur) thoughts.
