    The Twins are starting to accumulate quite a bit of leftover slot money.

    With Cutura, Murphy and Clay done, the Twins have saved $121,600. Maybe Burdi or Cederoth get some of that, otherwise it's essentially freed up the Twins to pay someone from round 11-40, 6th round money.

    What about Curtiss??

    Well, he won't sign until he's done playing for Texas.

    If they do accumulate a couple hundred thousand after the Top 10 are signed, what high school kids did they draft who would be considered big catches if signed?

    Tweet from LEN 3:

    Now they have signed seventh round pick Andro Cutura, a righthander from Southeastern Louisiana, and 10th round pick Randy LeBlanc, a righthander from Tulane.

    LeBlanc signed in the Cities the same time Cutura did, but we don't know a bonus. There was a tweet from TwinsPics that showed them both signing. (Seth pointed it out to me.)

    It also sounds like Steele is done.

    The only draft picks currently (as of yesterday) were Gordon and Gonzalez, so I'm not sure if they're flying the college guys to the Cities or what...

    3B McCarthy Tatum (20th round, committed to Fresno State) and C John Jones (39th round, committed to Miami). But I don't think they'll convince either to sign.

    I would say it's more likely that they use the savings on Burdi and Cederoth. Figured Gonzalez would cost more too, but that all happened pretty quick.

    McCarthy Tatum, great name, nice size (6'4" 180#) and appears to be able to pitch (HS team pitcher of the year) as well as hit. Tatum's HS team is Cali state champion and ranked by Baseball America #4 in the nation.

    Is he a definite "No!"? Perhaps not:

    McCarthy Tatum @mccarthytatum22Jun 7

    Looks like I have a new favorite team! #GoTwins
    Fresno or Ft Myers? Plus a nice chunk of change in his pocket. And maybe the Twins buy him his college scholarship. This would be the kind of signing that helps to make more sense of the early rounds. Does anyone have a better breakdown of his strengths and ceiling?

    I honestly wonder sometimes why HS guy wouldn't sign if a team threw 500k at him and a college scholarship if his career didn't pan out. I get it if there's a reasonable chance he comes out of college as a first or maybe second rounder, but that's pretty tough to do.

    And the Twins said that they will wait to sign them until they are done with Omaha.

    I'm a little surprised Clay signed for less than slot. I also thought Gonzalez would've been a tougher sign.

    Cederoth signed for slot.

    No Jake Reed yet.

    The Twins like Tatum, obviously, but he'd be a deadline guy, if anything.

    If all these numbers are right, they've saved over $218,000 so far. Nice!

    If you go to Jake Reed's Twitter (jakeyreed5), he's saying his goodbyes to Oregon so this is a done deal from the sounds of it even though he's a Junior. So, he should be finalizing just fine.
