According to a tweet by Twins beat writer for the Star Tribune Joe Christensen, the Twins have reached an agreement with their second round draft pick, Niko Goodrum. The high school shortstop from Georgia flew up to Minneapolis on Sunday afternoon to sign with the Twins and flew back home on Monday night. He had a day to pack before flying to Ft. Myers today to start his pro baseball career.
The Twins have now signed (at least) 21 of their 50 draft picks. Obviously signing #1 pick Alex Wimmers is a priority. Other high picks that have not yet signed include 5th round pick Nate Roberts, an outfielder from High Point University, and 6th round pick Logan Darnell, a pitcher from Kentucky.
11th round pick, 1B Tyler Kuresa, and 14th round pick, pitcher DeAndre Smelter are believed to be tough signings as both have made it known that they would like to go to college.
