    I was listening to the Twins pregame on radio (as I was driving over to the Saints game tonight) and they were saying that Buxton is going to be in town in the next few days and a quick signing was possible. Don't know if that is wishful thinking or not, but we can hope!

    Buxton will be there (Minneapolis, not Fort Myers where all the other guys are reporting to) Tuesday. Expect a press conference and an announcement there and then.

    Yeah that one is confirmed by multiple sources too, including Ben Revere who also went to the same high school.

    Was he someone we thought would be a tough sign?

    Well he was committed to Coastal Carolina, which has a very strong baseball program and a large population of, um, party-oriented women. Given that he wasn't taken until the 16th round I had no idea what the odds were. But presumably the Twins knew he wanted to go pro.

    Under slot

    Maybe if the Twins can get enough of their earlier choices to sign under slot enough will be accumulated to sign the likes of Tim Robinson and James Marvel.

    Very good developments. I thought Proctor and Hurt were potentially going to wait 1 year and 3 years, respectively.

    According to his Twitter account, Jonathan Murphy signed and will report to Ft. Myers (where they all report) for camp before they figure out whether they go to Beloit, E-Town or GCL.

    I shared the same feeling 100%. Exchanged emails with Hurt this morning, he hasn't signed yet, but he will be soon. Good news for the Twins.

    Not word on Melotakis, but according to BA, looks like Twins spent their whole slot allotment on Zach Jones ($356,700). They have a database where they indicate the signings (but is in not updated fast.) Might be a good resource to at least get the amounts. Their Twins' page is here.

    MLB changed what they reported earlier. Jones signed for $356,700 instead of $250,00. So, he signed at slot.
