D-backs sign Trahan, 30 other picks

The Arizona Diamondbacks have announced that they have come to terms with 31 of their 40 picks in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player Draft, including their top pick, catcher Stryker Trahan.

In addition, their top six picks, and 17 of their first 20 choices have agreed to contracts with the D-backs. The players will head to Phoenix to take physicals, then head to the club’s Spring Training facility in Scottsdale to attend mini-camp and get their assignments for the summer.

The announcements on where players will be place will be coming soon, and as we get information, we will post which players will be coming to Missoula to play for the Osprey.

The list of unsigned players includes three which we have already reported on prior posts on Bird Droppings who will reportedly not sign. Evan Marzilli is currently playing with South Carolina in the NCAA Super Regional against Oklahoma, trying for a baseball title three-peat. The last three names on the list – Max Schrock, Cameron Gibson, and Zane Hemond – are the ones reportedly will not sign but instead head to their college commitments – Schrock at South Carolina, Gibson at Michigan State, and Hemond at Phoenix College. Of the three, Hemond would be the only one who will stay draft-eligible next year, since he is going to a junior college.
