Draft Pick Signing Update

The Twins website has reported that the Twins have signed 7 of their draft picks thus far.

1.) Joe Benson (2nd round) - LF
2.) Tyler Robertson (3rd round) - LHP
3.) Garrett Olson (4th round) - 3B
4.) Jeff Christy (6th round) - C
5.) Brian Dinkelman (8th round) - 2B
6.) Chris Anderson (18th round) - LHP
7.) Gilbert Buenrostro (20th round) - C

The Star Tribune has suggested that first round pick Chris Parmelee will sign within the next couple of weeks.

It's not surprising that the Twins made it a priority to get some of the top catchers and left-handed pitchers from the draft signed. Catcher is a weak position in the system, and I think I've shown over the last week. Lefty's are always valuable. I would expect the Twins to get to about 15 signees in the next 2 weeks, and then go into "draft-and-follow" mode on most of the rest.
