Interview with Braves top draft pick Mike Minor

23

Jay LeBlanc of the Washington Times interviews our first round draft pick, Mike Minor. It's a good interview, and well worth the read. Minor seems like a very smart pitcher who knows what he wants to do when he goes to the mound.

Two sources said that Minor could have signed months earlier if not for interference from MLB. Minor and the Braves agreed in principle on the $2.42 million bonus before the draft—but before Atlanta received official word that the slots were reduced. The commissioner’s office pressured the Braves not to make the above-slot deal official so they wouldn’t hurt the Reds in their attempt to sign Arizona State righthander Mike Leake, the No. 8 pick, to a below-slot bonus.

Baseball America on how MLB f'ed the Mike Minor deal How can they screw a team like this when teams like the Yankees spend $200 million on every free agent known to man. They did this same thing with the Jason Heyward signing too. Imagine what another two months of pro ball on the front end could have done for his development or major league ETA.

It would seem like [2009 Atlanta Braves first round pick] Mike Minor and [Reds 1st round pick] Mike Leake, at 7 and 8, wouldn't be tough signs, but things are taking a little longer. My guess is Leake's camp is waiting to see what Minor signs for and perhaps neither wants to set the "college arm" bar.

First-round info from Jonathan Mayo at MLB.com This piggybacks on the info that we got last week from Kevin Goldstein at Baseball Prospectus who said that some of these guys may already be signed for above slot, but either MLB or the team is holding the deal until just before the deadline. Either way, it certainly seems that his signing will drag out until just before the deadline.

There's some surprise that [Braves first round draft pick Mike Minor] hasn't signed yet, but he could be waiting for the market to establish itself a little more. [The Orioles first round pick, fifth overall, Matt Hobgood] really could be the first domino to fall in a number of signings to come.

Kevin Goldstein examines the status of each first round pick I read this news one of two ways, either I'm happy that we know why Minor hasn't signed yet, and he's just trying to make the best business decision (which is his right); or he's trying to get too much out of the Braves and this process will drag on all summer. Either way, I'm sort of disappointed that he doesn't want to get busy pitching.
