So was he undrafted? Is that why he can sign after the deadline?

I'm guessing undrafted 4th yr senior.

Yeah, undrafted, exhausted his college eligibility, dad's a pro scout for the Twins. All of those things.

Is there any kid or nephew or relative of people in the organization, who play baseball that they haven't signed?

Has anyone done a study on the Twins' nepotism rate relative to the rest of MLB?

Tom Brunansky's son, Jason, just exhausted his eligibility at Kansas, and he's not in the Twins organization (yet).

It runs rampant throughout the entire major leagues. I don't see anything wrong with it to be honest. Not like he will be taking much money or a spot from someone more deserving at this point.
