Anyone feel free to add information about these players signing or deciding to attend/stay at college. I will bold each player that has OFFICIALLY signed. The names in green font are expected to sign and the names in red font are not expected to sign. The names in normal font I have not yet found or seen information indicating one way or the other. I will update this as I find information or it is posted here.

Sox signed 12th rounder Stoner.

Looking at the list, it seems odd the Sox would take four firstbasemen in their first nineteen picks especially considering they spent the supplemental pick on one.

Just because they're 1B now, doesn't mean that's where they'll stay as professionals

I just spoke the the sox scout for Brennan. He said they have agreed to terms and he will be heading to Chicago tomorrow for his physical. Will sign contract Monday then head to Arizona for mini-camp.

Keon Barnum close to deal.

13th rounder Derek Thompson, who has been labeled as a possible sleeper for the SOX in the 13th round is leaning towards signing.

3rd rounder Joey DeMichele is also expected to sign soon.

#WhiteSox have signed 9th-rder Micah Johnson for $127,600 (full pick value). #Indiana 2B has plenty of bat speed & foot speed. #mlbdraft

15th rounder Jordan Guerrero's maxprep page under college says, "committed to Chicago White Sox," so that is promising.

14th rounder Bucciferro has signed as well as 18th rounder Thomas McCarthy.

Mark Gonzales ‏@MDGonzales (https://twitter.com/#%21/MDGonzales) Keon Barnum, Joey DeMichele and Nick Basto will report to Bristol, Chris Beck and Brandon Brennan to Great Falls.

I take that as indication that Nick Basto has signed. Hadn't heard that anywhere else.

If anyone has seen any information on Kyle Hansen (6) and Eric Jaffe (11). Those are the only two players drafted in the first 30 rounds that I have not seen any indication of whether they plan to sign or stay in school.

It is a cool name.

He also played basketball. At 6'7" with a 93 MPH fastball, that name has future closer written all over it.

Sox sign Hawkins for recommended slot bonus of $2,475,000.

24th rounder Grabe has signed.

Sox sign NDFA catcher out of Appalachian State:

Barnum has already been added to Bristol's roster, so it looks like he's starting there.

Not sure if anybody has seen anything about Jaffe, but this Tribune article suggests that 10 out of the first 11 players have signed (Hansen the only unsigned).

Hawkins will report to Bristol now that he has signed his contract. Let's hope that tomorrow is the first of many times that Hawkins and Barnum will be in the lineup together, as part of the White Sox organization.

I came to ask this question and you have answered it for me. It doesn't look like Hawkins is in the line up tonight but Barnum is

Hansen has apparently signed (http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/06/draft-signings-pirates-braves-white-sox-indians.html) with the Sox.

Correct. Keon Barnum is in the lineup for Bristol, batting sixth and playing first base.

Of note, the person doing radio play-by-play for Bristol is absolutely the worst radio announcer I've ever heard in my life.

Example: "A shot! It's hit to Coste, and he maintains control... of the ball!"

RKMeibalane
06-19-2012, 06:35 PM
I invite everyone to listen to the Bristol Sox PBP announcer, in order to understand how awful he is.

In the bottom of the second inning, the Bluefield Blue Jays catcher lost track of the number of outs, and started to leave the field. What did our wonderful PBP man say, "And the catcher is headed toward the dugout because... he... though there were three outs, but... he... was quickly mistaken."

On a side note, I had no idea Mitch Mustain was on Bristol. I was wondering what happened to him after his arrest.

UCSB was SHOCKED when they heard this. He was not expected to get enough to sign and give up his scholly there. He told the Cardinals to not draft him in the fourth round because what they told him they'd give him was not going to be enough.

He's a long way from sniffing USCF - but certainly someone to watch as he moves through our system.

Looks like the Cubs spent about 5% over their bonus pool.

Does anyone know the specific on penalties this year?

I thought this type of overspending was supposed to result in fines and loss of draft picks.

Teams can spend up to 5% over with no penalty.
