2013 Rays' Draft Signings Thread


I thought we should start a thread to gather updates on the new draftees. If you see any news on any signings or information on whether or not a player will sign, put it in the comments with a link to the source and I will update it here.

1. Nick Ciuffo: Unsigned

1. Ryan Stanek: Unsigned

2. Riley Unroe: Signed

3. Thomas Milone

Pet 06/07 update, Milone is a lean to sign:

"He's looking at both sides of it," said Ralph Franco, Milone's coach at Masuk. "But I think he's leaning toward signing a major league contract. It has been his lifelong dream since he was in Little League. The whole town is so incredibly proud of Thomas."

Ramirez said once he signs the Rays expect to send him to Tampa to play on their rookie ball team.
