Rangers sign 12 draft picks

The Rangers have announced the signing of twelve of their 2013 draft picks


Per a press release that has been sent out by the Rangers, Texas has signed the following draft picks from the 2013 MLB Draft:

4th rounder Isiah Kiner-Falefa, a shortstop from a Hawaii high school

5th rounder Joe Jackson, a catcher from the Citadel

6th rounder Sam Wolff, a righthanded pitcher from the University of New Mexico

7th rounder Nick Gardewine, a RHP from Kaskaskia Community College

8th rounder Evan Van Hoosier, a second baseman from the College of Southern Nevada

9th rounder Jose Samayoa, a righthanded pitcher from Lee University

12th rounder Derek Thompson, a lefthanded pitcher from John A. Logan College

16th rounder Marcus Greene, a catcher from New Mexico Junior College

19th rounder Ryan Ledbetter, a righthanded pitcher from Cedarville University (and the twin brother of 3rd rounder David Ledbetter)

26th rounder Travis Dean, a righthanded pitcher from Kennesaw State

32nd rounder John Straka, a righthanded pitcher from North Dakota State

34th rounder Easton Napiontek, a righthanded pitcher from Lower Columbia College

The Rangers have not officially announced the signing of their first four picks -- Alex Gonzalez, Travis Demeritte, Akeem Bostick, and David Ledbetter. However, Ledbetter's agent indicated he's signing, Demeritte has indicated he's signing, and a picture of Bostick signing his contract has been tweeted.

So my guess is the Rangers are going to have Gonzalez, Demeritte, Bostick and Ledbetter all come to Arlington, and announce their deals Monday before the homestand starts.
