Follow-up (see main article on list in right margin):
MLB teams have until 9:00PM Monday August 16, 2010 to sign their picks from the 2010 first year player draft. We should see a flurry of signings today.
August 16, 2010– Jim Callis of Baseball America reports the Giants signed their number two overall pick, outfielder Jarrett Parker of Virginia, for $700,000. In 2009, Parker batted .355 with 16 home runs for the Virginia Cavaliers, and is considered a potential five tool player. Plays center field and has blinding speed on the bases and in the field. Power potential makes him a possible first baseman.

June 19, 2010– SF Chronicle sports writer Henry Schulman reported the Giants signed third round pick Carter Jurica and fourth round pick Seth Rosin.
The San Francisco Giants report they have come to terms with 33 players from this year’s draft, including all of their first 14 selections, and 18 of their top 20 picks.
