2010 MLB Amateur Draft Summary

The following list contains info from the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft that might be of interest to Texas or Big 12 fans. I've also included players from teams that we saw (or will see) in the Austin Regional and Super Regional. Please note that the position listed is the one the drafting team specifies...not necessarily the primary position played in school.

Last updated: August 17, 2010

Notes: [s] indicates the team and player have come to terms (signed); [c] indicates the player has elected to stay in (or go to) college; status of other players is unknown to me (updates appreciated). If you hear of any signings or draftees I might have missed, please drop me a line and I'll include the info along with proper attribution. Thanks.

Undrafted players who've signed:

Additional notes:

[1] Workman was also drafted in 2007 (3rd round, 107th overall, Phillies)
[2] Rupp was also drafted in 2007 (43rd round, 1273rd overall, Pirates)
[3] Keyes was also drafted in 2007 (26th round, 800th overall, Rangers)
[4] Moldenhauer was also drafted in 2006 (3rd round, 102nd overall, Angels)
[5] I missed Emsley-Pai's name during the original draft but saw him listed as signing with Arizona a week later. He played (14 appearances) at Texas two seasons ago as a freshman before transferring to Lewis-Clark State in Idaho.
[6] 'Got email on June 24 from Reynolds Shelton pointing to this blog post that says Ryan Ford committed to play at Texas on June 14th. 'Have not seen his name mentioned elsewhere. Thanks, Reynolds.
[7] Late signee: Crum signs with UT baseball team (HT: Donald Boyles)
[8] I saw somewhere (Twitter I think but now I can't find it) that Ryan had decided against signing with the Rays...but also that he'd return to San Jacinto rather than come to Texas. 'Guess we'll see.
[9] Another late signee: St. Rita's Payton decides to join Longhorns. (Another link: St. Rita baseball player Mark Payton commits to Texas, HT: Donald Boyles for second story). Interestingly, both stories say he was drafted in the 31st round but it was the 27th. Hmmm...
[10] The Diamondbacks have decided not to sign Loux leaving him up in the air. I think the MLB should give him a waiver and let another interested team sign him. A couple of articles: D'backs rescind deal with first pick Loux, Loux is a victim of draft compensation rule. Loux was granted free-agency on Aug. 17th.
