    DSL Tigers2 won their game 3-0. Good that they had a shutout, because they had 4 runners caught stealing and 3 runners picked off.

    Today begins the international signing period for 16 yo kids from Dominican Republic, Venezuela, etc. Most teams, including the Tigers, have just under $5 million to work with. Here is an excellent article describing the process: https://www.mlb.com/news/july-2-international-prospects-signing-tracker/c-283495622?tid=151437456

    Bosio Fired

    I assume they wouldn't fire Bosio without some corroboration of what he said. So it must have been overheard. If more than one person knows what he said, it will get out eventually.

    Kelvin Smith is the Tigers' 20th round selection out of HS. He will turn 19 in October. Off to a nice start at GCL East. Slash line for 25 AB is .280/.379/.280, 4 BB, 6 K, and 5 stolen bases without being caught. All his hits are singles.

    There are three unsigned draftees. They didn't sign #38 and #39, and my understanding is that they never expected to sign them. #11 is Kacey Murphy who plays for Arkansas. Arkansas is still involved in the College World Series and he can't be signed until that's over, which will be Thursday, weather permitting. 3 unsigned players is fewer than recent years. They didn't sign 11 in 2017, 9 in 2016, and 14 in 2015.

    Assuming the last guy, #11 Murphy, signs under slot, the Tigers ended up spending $573,300 over their slot values. This also assumes I know what I'm doing, which is often debatable. Since they spent less that 5 percent over slot, there will be a 75 percent penalty but they will not lose draft picks for the future.

    Sorry to double up on the Jim Callis Tweet about Clemens. I couldn't figure out how to delete it. The last unsigned player is 11th rounder Kacey Murphy, whose team, Arkansas, is still involved in the College World Series. There are also two players who were drafted in the 38th and 39th rounds who were never expected to sign.
