List Of Braves Signed Draft Picks

Bill Shanks over at FoxSportsSouth.com (my old job, ha!) has the latest list of draft picks that the Braves have signed:

ROUND - NAME
S – Matt Lipka - SS
2 – Todd Cunningham – 3B
2 – Andrelton Simmons - SS
4 – Dave Filak - RHP
6 – Joey Terdoslavich – 3B
7 – Matt Suschak - RHP
8 – Kurt Fleming - OF
9 – David Rohm – 1B
10 – Matt Lewis - RHP
11 – Chase Shreve - LHP
12 – Barrett Kleinknecht - SS
13 – Brandon Drury - SS
14 – Richie Tate - RHP
15 – Cory Brownsten - C
16 – Dan Winnine – RHP
19 – Tyler Hess - RHP
20 – Jay Mowry - OF
23 – James Gattis - C
25 – Dan Jurik - RHP
26 – Jonathan Burns - RHP
27 – Willie Kempf - RHP
30 – Kenny Fleming - OF
32 – Ryan Delgado – C
36 – Jarred Frierson – 2B
39 – Stephen Foster - LHP
40 – Ian Marshall - RHP

Joe Leonard (3) and Phillip Gosselin (5) are the biggest holdouts so far. The Braves sign both Fleming brothers, and if you'll remember, their dad is the Braves East Coast Crosschecker. I like the last three names on this list a lot. These are three guys I thought would be very interesting signings and could have a better than average chance to come out of nowhere and be solid prospects.

I also like the 25th to 27th pick signings. They are all polished college pitchers, and all have a future as bullpen prospects, with Jurik probably starting out in the rotation. They may not be great, but they seem to be exceptional value for this low in the draft.

If my calculations are correct, we've already signed more players this year (26) than we did last year (24). Obviously the most important player left is Joe Leonard, with Gosselin being second, and the hard signs of Stefan Sabol and Zach Alvord after them. Any three of those players and this draft will be one of the best in recent memory for Atlanta.
