Hopefully the others will be following suit shortly…

There are less than 16 hours remaining for all teams to sign any players they selected from the 2011 June Amateur Draft as the midnight deadline gets ever so closer.
While most of the attention for Mets fans has been on first round pick Brandon Nimmo, there are other players the Mets have yet to sign and they include third round pick RHP Scott Verrett, 11th round selection RHP Christian Montgomery, 12th round selection LHP Kent Matthews, and 15th round selection SS Phillip Evans. Those are the main ones, but about 15 other players in addition to them are still unsigned according to Mets.com.
Yesterday, Mike Puma of the NY Post spoke to Brandon Nimmo’s father who didn’t sound very optimistic and said, “We’re pretty much at the same place we were on June 6″. However, according to Adam Rubin, a Mets source told him that a deal will get done today. We’ll see.
Third round pick RHP Scott Logan Verrett could be close to signing and took a trip to New York for a physical this weekend. That’s definitely a good sign.
It should be a pretty eventful day for the Mets as we get closer to the deadline, so keep it tuned to MMO and I will update this post as the news trickles in.
