2012 Indians Draft: Signing deadline day
Today is the MLB Draft signing deadline (5:00pm ET). The Indians have now signed all of their top ten round picks and have 25 of their 40 picks in the fold. It is sort of an anticlimactic day since all of the big signings have been made and there is very little the Indians can do to add much, but they still have the means to add another player or two or three today. Tony chimes in with his last signing update of the year, and a non-premium piece to boot.

2012 Indians Draft: 7/2 Signing update
We are now 11 days away from the July 13th signing deadline, and as expected some signings are starting to trickle in. Yesterday the Indians officially signed 15th round pick Nelson Rodriguez, a player that I noted had agreed to terms a week ago in this report. In today's update I give an update on a player flying into Arizona to sign his contract, talk about the demands of 4th round pick D'Vone McClure and how signable he is, and where the Indians may go if they are unable to sign him.

2012 Indians Draft: 6/29 Signing update
The 2012 Draft signing deadline is two weeks away from today on July 13th....that is Friday the 13th for the superstitious folks out there. Will Friday the 13th bring bad or good luck to the Indians with more signings? We will see, but in the meantime Tony has several more signing updates on players and where they stand in the negotiation process with firsthand updates on Nelson Rodriguez, Joshua Pigg, Joshua Lester, and Anthony Hawkins. One of those players has already agreed to sign.

2012 Indians Draft: 6/28 Signing update

Tony gives an update on where he feels things will go with the Indians' remaining unsigned top ten round picks and also has a few updates on where a few other players are in the signing process.
