I'm looking forward to seeing what Jarvis can do. He seems like one of those guys who will do whatever it takes to win. He doesn't have the size to make it as a pitcher, but I think he can carve out a good career for himself, as long as he learns the infield positions. He does have a good swing.

Jarvis is a good first signing for the Sox as there were some concerns about his signability considering he committed to Texas A&M.

Keep 'em coming! Pretty excited for this draft class.

Thats a big signing with Adams if we really did not go over slot. That might mean we can throw the savings from the college seniors at Montes de Oca. If we can land him, thats a BIG signing.

Unless I'm reading that wrong, it looks they signed him at slot.

South Side Sox has a good open thread going for rumors and has an updated list, they're one of my favorite sources so will be monitoring it closely over the next few weeks...

White Sox sign US Olympic speed skater Eddy Alvarez as an undrafted free agent

http://www.people.com/article/olympi...cago-white-sox

Alvarez is a native of Miami and was offered a collegiate baseball scholarship that he rejected to pursue his skating career.

Really nice write up here on our draft:

(shameless plug, this is my buddy Chris who also handles the ESPN mlb draft information with Keith Law, so feel free to scope his website and also I think his analysis is usually great).

Fry signed....per a Sox press release...now it's a matter of time for Rondon. Then the Q is what's left for Montas de Oca....

Great job by the front office.

Fry signed over slot, which I think if I did the math right off that website means we are sitting just over 500k extra to play with (with some of the college senior picks not showing info).

I still contend we have a "chance" at Montes De Oca if we throw a mil at him.

What's the penalty for spending more than your allotment? Is there punishments in how much you get next year? Forfeit draft picks? If we have a chance to sign the kid that was injured, the risk might be worth the reward. We may have to go under slot for players in next years draft?
