18th round pick Edouard Julien from Auburn has signed for 493k

Wow ... that a huge over-slot bonus ...

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a skunkweed will always be a skunkweed and instantly recognizable.

Wow I did not see that coming.That is a nice get for the Twins.Yet another power hitter with a bit of swing and miss concerns but he is young.Plenty of time to turn it around.Very happy they got him he has fair bit of upside Fangraphs had him at 88 and MLB at 177.Doesn't run real well, doesn't have a great arm but has an above average power stroke.Currently a lot of swing and miss but he has been hitting really well recently.He is a nice lottery ticket if you ask me and they needed to do something with that left over money anyway.

guess they didn't really like many prep players this year... not sure what to think about that.

Do they have enough powder left over to sign the Canadian lefty?Someone else?

 

[Disregard this comment, thought the amount listed above as remaining was after signing Julien.After looking again, they used every dollar remaining to get him signed.Nice going front office!]

 

Another year where they signed over 30 picks.Much different than the past when the norm was mid-20's signed each year.

Yeah I was thinking they would spend that money on one the High School pitchers they took late.Either they didn't like them that much or $500,000 wasn't enough to get them to sign? 

 

System needs more pitching lotto tickets if you ask me but experts said this year was not great for arms so looks like they are taking their shots with hitters that have potential instead of arms as they went over slot for two power hitters with swing and miss in Holland and now Julien. No such deals for any arms this year.

The two Stillwater kids taken in the 35 and 36 rounds have played together and been friends since they were very young.They are both headed to Oregon State and signing them was a long shot from the moment they were drafted.

I'm glad we signed Julien! We gave him $10,000 more than we gave our 4th rounder! So far we've signed 33 out of 41 picks. Hopefully we can sign a couple more of these guys! Go Twins!!!!! :)

Was thinking the Canadian but any high school pitcher would have been nice.

By my count Cavaco was the only HS player we signed. Did I miss anyone?
